The top brokerages across the U.S. will all be joining The Real Deal in Shanghai this November for our second Real Estate Showcase & Forum in China. Representatives from Douglas Elliman, Sotheby’s International, Town Residential, Brown Harris Stevens and many others will join China’s top brokers and most active investors at the event.

The event will take place at the five-star Jing An Shangri-La Hotel from Nov. 17 to 19. Our 2016 show will bring prominent industry professionals and investors from the United States to Shanghai, including former New York Gov. George Pataki. Douglas Elliman chief Howard Lorber, HFZ’s Ziel Feldman and Witkoff’s Steve Witkoff have recently joined our growing list of distinguished speakers, who will share market insight on key panels throughout the event.

Other participants include Bruce Mosler (Cushman & Wakefield), Sharif El-Gamal (Soho Properties), Don Peebles (Peebles Corporation), Christopher Wein (Great Gulf), Alan Rosenbaum (GuardHill Financial), Chris Marlin (Lennar), Nick Mastroianni II (U.S. Immigration Fund), Jay Neveloff (Kramer Levin), David Long (Grand China Fund), Nikki Field (Sotheby’s International), Jennifer Wang (PwC Shanghai), John Van Fleet (USC Marshall School of Business) and Jason Lee (Six Sigma). The sessions will compliment workshops and more than 100 exhibits of residential and commercial developments.

A report issued this spring said Chinese investment in existing U.S. real estate assets could total more than $218 billion from 2016 through 2020. But there is a major disconnect between Chinese investors and U.S. developers and marketers owing to differences in culture, language, time zone, Internet freedoms and market familiarity. The Real Deal’s U.S. Real Estate Forum and Showcase will provide an arena for dealmaking and relationship-building in this notoriously difficult market.
