Join C-suite and executive managers to share and discuss best practices in business and leadership strategies and understand from peers the realities of scaling and growing the real estate investment management organization of today. 


Through roundtables and whole room conversations we dive into organization and business strategies and invite executives to share insights into what works, and what doesn't, as they grow their organizations for tomorrow. 


Day One - Tuesday, October 20

E-leader: How will you run your business in 2021?

Your team is dispersed. Remote and work from home is now a large part of your business plan and the processes upon which you’ve run your business for past the five, 10, and 20 years are being tested, fully, online among teams scattered around cities, regions, states and the world. You are Zoomed out.


So how are you reacting as an executive manager and leader? How are you leading your team today and, importantly, tomorrow? What are strategies for running the business beyond 2021? The NAREIM Executive Officer meeting discusses and shares real-time solutions for enterprise strategy and how to keep teams engaged and retained for the longer-term.

Day Two - Wednesday, October 21


Planning the pipeline. Outmaneuvering Covid and planning for the future of your enterprise and investment strategy

2020 has been a year to remember. From lockdowns to historic job losses, and from reckonings over racial inequality to continued extreme weather events. There are challenges at every turn. So where do we start to look to solutions? Well, let’s start with the facts.


From the realities of Covid and the roadmap to a vaccine to understanding what the current pandemic means for your business and investment strategy. C-suite and executive management peers discuss how they are navigating Covid waters, before looking to the deal and revenue pipeline. 


3pm: Welcome comments


3.10pm: Peer-to-peer conversations: What’s on your mind?


Topic A: What’s in the (office) pipeline? 

Real-time data and anecdotal evidence on pipeline deals relating to U.S. office leasing transactions. Three leasing brokers provide on-the-ground and forward-looking intelligence about the office leasing market across key markets in the U.S. over the coming 3-6 months. 


The short intelligence briefings are followed by breakout group discussions of no more than 6 people, where executive officers discuss and report back on the near-term impact of Covid on office leases, TIs and valuations.

The intelligence briefings will discuss:

  • The leasing pipeline vs 2019 and a forward assessment of the market.

  • Leasing activity for leases with expirations since the start of COVID-19.

  • Emerging trends in term renewals, short-term extensions, contractions, expansions and tenant improvements. 

  • Trends in new non-renewal related leases versus 2019. Are volume, rates, TI requests trending positively, or negatively since the start of Covid-19?
