VIP Americas is our flagship event that is anticipated by the industry's top investment managers, investors and consultants. It is "THE" place to meet the right people.

VIP delivers a quality agenda that is marketing-free. It upholds a strict ratio of 3 managers to every 1 investor. This ensures that attendees are able to really engage and get to know one another. Our audience is also capped so that the event is kept at a size that fosters relationship building. During the event there are several opportunities to socialize with attendees. Whether you are discussing critical industry issues as a part of a roundtable breakout session or at an off-site recreational activity, VIP gives you an excellent networking platform to establish new relationships and strengthen existing.

Registration is open to qualified investors and subscribers to our Institutional Real Estate Americas publication. To find out more details about registration and our publication, please contact our Events Department at events@irei.com or +1 925-244-0500.
