Dear Friend of the NYUSPS Schack Institute of Real Estate,

On behalf of the NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS) Schack Institute of Real Estate, we are pleased to invite you to the 22nd Annual REIT Symposium: REITs in the New World Order at the Pierre Hotel in New York City onThursday, April 6, 2017. Once again this year, the Symposium will bring together the REIT industry's most prominent decision-makers for a critical examination of the forces that are shaping the sector at this unprecedented time for the American economy and business environment.

Approaching equity market capitalization of $1 trillion, the listed REIT sector in the United States has grown five-fold since the financial crisis, supported by acquisition and consolidation as well as expansion into new property sectors. Outside the United States, more than 30 countries now have REIT frameworks in place. While the industry's momentum is undiminished, it is confronted with cyclical and structural challenges that will both disrupt the business model and open new avenues for growth.

We are delighted to share that our keynote speaker this year is Owen Thomas, CEO of Boston Properties. The program also features one-on-one conversations with Sam Zell, Chairman of Equity Group, and Jon Gray, Global Head of Real Estate at Blackstone, as well as in-depth panel discussions with more than forty of the industry's leading CEOs, bankers, lawyers, analysts, and investors. More than 500 industry delegates attend the Symposium each year and are active participants in the day's discussion and debate.

We you hope you will join us at this year's Symposium and look forward to a rigorous dialogue on the industry outlook.
