The forum will return to London in 2021 at a crucial time for the industry. Established in 2019, the Women in Real Estate Forum has driven forward the discussion around diversity in real estate.
Bringing together institutional investors, fund managers and the surrounding industry, the event provides a platform for men and women of all levels to build their network across alternative asset classes.
This year’s Women in Real Estate Forum, part of the Women in Private Markets Summit will once again be co-located with the Women in Private Equity, Women in Infrastructure and Women in Private Debt Forums. All registered attendees will have access to the four forums, as well as the additional Networking Day.
Unrivalled networking opportunities
This is an event like no other within the asset class for networking. Take part in the discussion and make real lasting connections with industry participants. The agenda is designed to facilitate networking opportunities including speed-networking, investor-only workshop, roundtable discussions, think-tanks, mentoring sessions and much more.
