The Westin Palace, in Madrid, will host this conference, which will place the Real Estate Investment Trusts and the opportunities they represent for Portugal in particular where they were just created, and for Spain, under the spotlight.
The REITs’ future or the analysis of the market in the last few years wiill be on the agenda of the more than 200 attendees expected at this conference, among which companies like Merlin Properties, BNP Paribas Real Estate or Lar España. The morning starts with the panel «European REIT’s – An opportunity for growth!» and the theme «REITs as the main vehicle for institutional real estate investment» gives the motto for the day’s second panel. «REITs in Europe – What to expect?» which is the final debate before lunch.
Dominique Moerenhout, EPRA’s CEO, comments that «the success of the REIT regime in Spain, which is the most successful case I know, is a clear example of what can also happen in Portugal, a country with a market very similar to the Spanish market. The regulation allows for the real estate sector to recover which creates new jobs in Europe which is growing once again».
Colonial, Lar España, Merlin Properties, BNP Paribas Real Estate, Clifford Chance and MLGTS are the event’s main sponsors.
