2:00 PM - 2:45 PMDistressed Property Trends: What’s In Store For 2023/2024

The coming year may or may not be the one in which a recession finally arrives. It’s also a year that’s likely to see more geopolitical uncertainty and more property-level distress – and to top it off, there will be a national election. Our panel of experts will discuss what the rest of 2023 and 2024 looks like from their current vantage point, where the opportunities will be, and how they intend to keep moving forward regardless of what occurs.

2:45 PM - 3:00 PMNetworking Break
3:00 PM - 3:45 PMIndustry Leaders Investment Insights

What’s a sure bet and what’s a hard sell among property types? Industry leaders will discuss the investment plays they’re making or looking for, whether no-brainer, counterintuitive or higher risk, along with the ones they’re avoiding at present.

3:45 PM - 4:30 PMNavigating the Capital Markets and Financing Options

The capital markets in 2023 are less clear-cut than they were a year and a half ago, but savvy investors nonetheless are finding a pathway through – often with the help of lenders (including private funds) and brokers. You’ll hear from all these groups on best practices and creative financing maneuvers.
