Massey Knakal CRE Investment Summit, NY - Speaking Opportunity.

We are just 23 days away from the Massey Knakal CRE Investment Summit, which is without doubt one of the most star-studded conferences we have yet had the honor to produce, with one powerhouse after another sitting side-by-side on each of the panels, as well as Vornado's CEO Mike Fascitelli and RXR's CEO Scott Rechler as keynotes.  

It is also one of the best attended in our history, with more attendees committed to attend than we have ever had at three weeks out (yes, we went back and checked!); more than 350 have already made plans to take part, and we still have three more weeks to go. We are extremely excited about April 26, and we hope you are as well.

As we put the finishing touches on the agenda, a handful of speaking spots remain available for select industry leaders and topical experts to take part as panelists or moderators. Full disclosure: some speaking opportunities require sponsorship. Please take a look at the agenda below or online, and contact us if you see a good fit for you or a senior executive at your firm.  

Best regards,
