FEEDBACK & pictures FROM


"The quality of professionals involved in the event was unprecedented."


"Portfolio managers need to find quiet time to think about the business and approach."


"This is a great meeting for networking. There are lots of good opportunities to meet and talk to people. I really liked how the rooms are set up with tables that facilitate talking to other people."

"The fact that people are willing to let down their guard and make provocative comments to generate great conversation is a key takeaway."


"The focus on portfolio management and being able to meet my peers and share ideas, challenges, and solutions in an open environment is what I like most about NAREIM."

"We are more alike than different in our experiences, and especially in tough environments, we should open up to candid conversations and learn from one another to push forward."

"This is the meeting for peer-to-peer learning, for sharing best practices and lessons learned. It is less transactional feeling and more about connecting."
