Going Global: Real Estate Investment and Development Around the World

While a robust recovery from the global financial crisis remains elusive and the world is undergoing changes in political leadership at the highest levels, real estate investors and developers are finding new opportunities amid the global uncertainty. Learn how the leaders and visionaries in the real estate industry view the changing landscape and plan to take advantage of these opportunities.

You will hear from a range of leading investors, developers, and strategists exploring emerging trends in investment and capital flows across the globe, new opportunities for investments in the United States and abroad, and the changing dynamics of global cities.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has a long and honored tradition of excellence in education and research in the discipline of real estate and urban land economics. Through events like this conference, the James A. Graaskamp Center for Real Estate is setting the standard for real estate in the new millennium. We are proud to partner again with Toll Brothers in hosting the 2014 Global Real Estate Markets Conference.
