feedback from EO 2022

"So many conferences move on after 30 minutes without actually delivering anything meaningful on a topic. I like the fact that the topics are relevant and we take the time to do a deep dive."


"A+ attendee list (could've been even smaller) and open forums for direct, candid conversations on what's truly affecting our industry today."

"I wished some of the sessions were longer, particularly the compensation discussion."


"[It was good to know] that we're not alone with our challenges, both individually and as a company."

"[I took away that] talent is the lifeblood of our industry and keeping and retaining good people is something nobody has figured out yet."

"Intimate nature; open and interactive discussion; interesting topics."

"Every one of us are experiencing the same challenges and by collaborating, we can work towards fine tuning our approaches."


"[This is a] great platform to interact with the best minds in the real estate investment industry and small group for better conversations.
