The 2024 NAREIM Black Real Estate Roundtable meeting returns to NYC, on March 27th from 2pm, with Black Real Estate Executives in Conversation, real estate investment management case studies and a collaborative workshop, and informal networking in the evening.

Black Real Estate Roundtable is a unique place to build genuine relationships and friendships in an intimate setting where you can actually connect with every person in the room. NAREIM meetings are not passive, they value your time commitment and there is no better meeting to do that at Black Real Estate Roundtable 2024.
