23rd Annual REIT Symposium

Dear Friends of the NYUSPS Schack Institute,

On behalf of the NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS) Schack Institute of Real Estate, we are pleased to invite you to attend the 23rd Annual REIT Symposium: Opportunities in the Age of #Disruption at The Pierre in New York City on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.

The Symposium will once again bring together the REIT industry’s most prominent decision makers for a critical examination of the forces that are shaping the sector at this unprecedented time for the American economy and business environment. We are delighted to share that our keynote speaker this year is Timothy Naughton, chief executive officer of AvalonBay Communities. The program also will feature a luncheon address and book signing with Sam Zell, chairman of Equity Group Investments, as well as in-depth panel discussions with more than 40 of the industry’s leading CEOs, bankers, lawyers, analysts, and investors. More than 500 industry professionals attend the Symposium each year and also are active participants in the day’s discussion and debate.

We hope you will join us at this year’s Symposium and look forward to a vigorous dialogue on the industry outlook.
