For the first time ever, Global Property Market is hosting a conference in New York City at the Javits Center on June 1-2, 2016. According to a report by Real Capital Analytics, commercial property transactions worldwide totaled $1.2 trillion in 2015. The discussion at this year’s conference will no doubt revolve around this positive trend and the opportunities related to it and will serve as the place to be in order to stay relevant in commercial real estate investment and development.

This conference will have 30+ panel sessions and participants will hear first-hand from 100+ leading speakers, including CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, making it a prime environment for networking and strategic information gathering. There will be bountiful opportunities to learn about markets for global investment, capital flows into and out of North America, development activity in tier one countries, and a professional look at growing and emerging markets.

One of the most positive trends throughout 2015 was the growth in cross-border flows, which were up 28% totaling $289 billion, according to a report by Real Capital Analytics. This series will bring together a dynamic group of global real estate players to analyze international capital flow trends in the heart of New York City,” says George Przybylowski, vice president of Informa Canada and producer of Global Property Market. This is no exaggeration. Real estate and investment professionals, institutional investors, developers, investment authorities, leading architects, designers, consultants, and senior industry professionals will be in attendance—making the conference ideal for sharpening decision-making tools to get ahead in a prosperous market.

Along with networking opportunities, attendees will have a chance to participate in a series of real estate tours showcasing leading developments throughout the New York City area. There will be a tour of the Hudson Yards, the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States, by Oxford Properties Group (a platinum sponsor of Global Property Market). There will be a Hudson River boat tour to enjoy the New York City skyline and marvel at the city’s architectural accomplishments. Additionally, there will be a walking tour of developments made on the High Line, the city’s lush, elevated public park that spans 22 blocks.
