Following a highly successful 18-year collaboration, this year's MSCI/IPF Property Investment Conference in Brighton on November 15-16, 2018 will be the last in the series and promises to be a fittingly grand finale. Real estate analysis experts will be joined by industry practitioners to discuss the trends and challenges faced by real estate professionals today.
This year's conference will consider major themes in three keynote addresses. The opening keynote looks at changing patterns of global trade and their implications for the real economy; the dangers of fake news, political interference and the abuse of personal data will be investigated; and the closing keynote explores how demographics and migration are changing the landscape for the economy, investment and real estate..
