Global Conference: The Americas - Risks, Opportunity & Adaptation

Monday, August 10, 2020
11:00 AM – 12:15 PM
CAR Members: Complimentary / Non-Members: Complimentary

Registration will close on Monday. August 10 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!

North America is one of the most dynamic real estate markets in the world due to its few restrictions on ownership, ample profit potential and wide variety of opportunities for investors of all classes. Since exiting the economic downturn, North American real estate values have soared to meet or exceed the highs of more than a decade ago. Some analysts believe the market is due for a correction, while others think volatility will rule the day. Our experts will discuss the risks, potential opportunities and creative adaptations that mitigate perils for investors.

Additionally, a gift card raffle will be conducted for the member(s) who attend ALL sessions! The winner will be announced during the September session.
