2026 Visions, Insights & Perspectives (VIP) Americas

2026 Visions, Insights & Perspectives (VIP) Americas

January 26 - 28, 2026 | Park Hyatt Aviara | Carlsbad, CA

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. IREI does not permit any side meetings, at any time during our scheduled program.  Additionally, the attendee list shall not be utilized for marketing purposes, of any type, nor should it be used for distribution.  These are both a violation of IRE's events policy and we reserve the right to rescind any future attendance. We trust you understand that these (and our related event policies) have always been designed to ensure we can create the kind of unique, special experience for all attendees we’ve always been known for.

IREI strives for a ratio of three (3) managers to every one (1) investor to create a balanced environment. 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 or +1 925-244-0500.
