Expectations running high a few weeks before the Spain Real Estate Summit

Madrid is preparing to host an emblematic conference to address the keys to investment in the Iberian real estate sector. The Spain Real Estate Summit, which Grupo Iberinmo is organising in collaboration with CBRE and JLL, is shaping up to be a unique initiative to promote a profound collective reflection by leaders in analysis and opinion, as well as leading figures in the world of economics and investment in the real estate sector.


The transformation of assets, new financing models, the production of a greater volume of affordable housing or the effect that new technologies and the deployment of AI have on the real estate sector are some of the key issues that will be addressed at the Spain Real Estate Summit, providing a comprehensive platform to offer solutions to address and take advantage of these major challenges and the consequent emerging opportunities.

The Spain Real Estate Summit will also feature parallel sessions to generate maximum interaction between participants, covering complementary topics such as retail, hotels, logistics and data centres, allowing investors to be an active part of the debate by voicing their concerns and expectations.

By bringing together opinion leaders, economic experts and investors, the event aims to foster collective reflection and the identification of innovative solutions to market challenges. A true catalyst for growth and adaptation of the sector in a constantly evolving economic and technological environment.

The Spain Real Estate Summit will not only be a reflection of the dynamism of the Spanish real estate market, but also an opportunity to influence and form part of its future. A vital meeting point for sharing knowledge, driving innovation and forging new alliances in the sector.
