The second year of The Real Deal’s annual executive retreat kicked off at Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas.

Future City’s 2020 attendees — including Bentley Zhao of New Empire Real Estate, David Kramer of Hudson Companies, Doug Eisenberg of A&E Real Estate Holding, Young Woo of Youngwoo & Associates, Gil Dezer of Dezer Development and DR Dwyer of Related Companies — trickled into the resort Sunday, prepared for several days of networking and panels on the future of real estate, construction and technology.

The program began with presentations from Patrice Derrington, the head of Columbia University’s real estate program, and Sam Chandan, the associate dean of NYU’s Schack Institute of Real Estate, on the industry’s adoption of technology.

By 7 p.m., speed networking kicked off with drinks, as tech startup founders swarmed developers with pitches.
