With Chinese investment in U.S. real estate continuing at an accelerated rate, The Real Deal is heading back to China this November for our second-ever Shanghai forum and showcase.
The event, which will take place at five-star Jing An Shangri-La Hotel from Nov. 17 to 19, is the largest event of its kind to ever be held in China. Our 2016 event will bring prominent industry professionals and investors from the United States to Shanghai, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who will be delivering this year’s keynote address.
U.S. Ambassador Charles Gargano will participate on one of our many panels, which will compliment workshops and more than 100 exhibits of residential and commercial developments. Last year’s event welcomed key industry players from New York, Miami and Los Angeles, including Eliot Spitzer, Steve Witkoff, Miki Naftali and Ifei Chang, to name a few.
A report issued this spring said Chinese investment in existing U.S. real estate assets could total more than $218 billion from now until the end of 2016. The Real Deal’s U.S. Real Estate Forum and Showcase will provide an arena for dealmaking and relationship-building, with an event that will be bigger and even better than last year.
