MBA's new CREF Market Intelligence Symposium cuts through the talking-head clutter to provide hard facts about the state of commercial real estate markets - and what we do and don't know. The nation's leading CRE analysts present data-driven insights about where markets are, and where they are likely to go from here. Experts will go beyond opinions to present the latest data and leading models to help attendees understand where we are in the real estate cycle, how to think about property prices in a low rate environment, what the drivers are of demand for and supply of debt, how to identify whether underwriting is tight or loose, what drives loan performance, how investors gauge success in their commercial real estate debt portfolios and more. MBA's CREF Market Intelligence Symposium  in collaboration with NYU's Schack Institute of Real Estate and is designed to be the event you will be talking about all year.

Here is a preliminary snapshot of some of the experts who will be speaking and what they'll be talking about:

Cycle: Where are we in the real estate cycle(s) (and how certain are we)?

  • Nick Buss, Invesco
  • Victor Calanog, REIS
  • David Egan, CBRE
  • Ryan McCullough, CoStar

Bubbles: Where are prices headed and why (and how certain are we)?

  • Jim Costello, Real Capital Analytics
  • Andy McCulloch, Green Street Advisors

Underwriting: How can we gauge whether underwriting is "tight" or "loose" (and how certain are we)?

  • Erin Stafford, DBRS
  • Tyler Wiggers, Federal Reserve Board

Loan Performance: What drives loan performance (and how certain are we)?

  • Jun Chen, Moody's
  • Richard McLemore, MetLife
  • Emily Ross or Lynn Shibut, FDIC

The symposium kicks off at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19 and wraps up at Noon on Thursday, July 20 - time well spent as you'll return to your office with a new view on your business environment and on the risks and opportunities ahead.  This is a discussion you won't want to hear about second-hand.
