Monday, August 17, 2020
11:00 AM – 12:15 PM
CAR Members: Complimentary / Non-Members: Complimentary

Registration will close on Monday. August 17 at 8:00 AM

Take a (virtual) trip around the globe with CAR’s Global Council for a five-part Global Conference series highlighting heavy investment areas within Asia, Europe, Africa/Middle Eastern and the Americas! You will hear from dynamic speakers and experts on how to tap into these markets to expand your business and clientele, obtain new marketing resources and identify emerging trends for the new normal. You’ll also learn new data and tools for a strategic advantage, and you’ll get a front-row seat into the emerging markets and international developments worldwide!

Africa is emerging as a prime opportunity for real estate development and financial investment, including a surge in FinTech development in several nations. We’ll hear an overview of the African state of affairs and current trends, and gain knowledge on the real estate transaction process and the types of opportunities available to developers and investors. Africa is recognized as having a number of untapped and unrealized opportunities, so if you or your clients are interested in investing where the rewards are as high as the risks, you won’t want to miss this session!

Additionally, a gift card raffle will be conducted for the member(s) who attend ALL sessions!
