REIT Symposium

Dear Friends of the Schack Institute,

We are pleased to announce that the 24th Annual REIT Symposium has been set for Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. For nearly a quarter century, the Symposium has been one of the sector's most consequential forums, convening industry leaders for a critical examination of the forces shaping the outlook for real estate.

We are delighted to share that our keynote speaker for the 24th Symposium is James Taiclet, chief executive officer of American Tower Corporation. The program also features a one-on-one conversation with Sam Zell, chairman of Equity Group Investments, and in-depth panel discussions with more than 30 of the sector's leading CEOs, bankers, lawyers, analysts, and investors. More than 500 industry professionals attend the Symposium each year and are active participants in the day’s discussion and debate.

We look forward to seeing you at the Symposium.
