Closed-Door Round Tables & Private Lunches (VIP ACCESS)

We’ve listened, and we’ve heard you. You’re tired of self-serving panels and unstructured networking where you *might* meet the right people. We have curated a handful of exclusive closed-door round tables and lunches strictly limited in size, comprised of a vetted group of qualified investors, owners, developers, government officials and corporate/retail tenants.

These sessions are not open to just anyone. There are no pitches and no presentations. Instead, the sessions are designed for peer-to-peer idea sharing and collective problem solving around key challenges. Each session is limited to a maximum of 30 participants. Contact Claudia Gutwirth to inquire about joining one of these high value sessions.

These curated sessions are comprised of select leaders. Real estate, public sector and business leaders join to share real challenges and solutions in a closed-door, off-the-record environment.

About This Event

In Brooklyn, challenges abound. The bright and optimistic outlook over the past 7 to 8 years has given way to a sobering reality that Brooklyn has arrived and is now subject to the same laws of gravity that affect other major markets.

Brooklyn office space is proving challenging to fill, retail is undergoing a revolution locally and globally, and residential is undergoing downward price pressures. In addition, new deals are harder to find, and asking prices are too high to make deals pencil out. These are not insurmountable challenges, but they do require an updated and more practical way of thinking.

Re-introducing the Brooklyn Real Estate Summit (BRES), now in its 8th year, where owners, investors and developers come together, along with retail and office tenants as well as key government officials, for exploration, ideation, and problem-solving around key pain points with the goal of delivering actionable market information and ideas.

Organized around a framework of invite-only Solve-It Sessions, BRES upends the traditional conference format for one that ensures that the right people connect and that real market intelligence and solutions are shared.
