The Real Estate Research Institute annual conference was held April 29-30, 2015. The conference was hosted by the Real Estate Center at DePaul University.
The annual RERI Real Estate Conference is held in the spring of each year to disseminate the results of the previous year's funded projects to the real estate and investment communities.
The event spans one to two days and includes presentations from some of the nation's top researchers, as well as panels and open discussions on topics of current industry interest.
Participants take home working papers on topics presented at the seminar and have the opportunity to network with many of the nation's leading investment managers, consultants, plan sponsors and academics.
