This year’s event was titled “Real Estate in 2016 – Adapting and Succeeding in a Changing Industry,” and featured a Dealmakers panel that examined new opportunities that exist in the real estate marketplace. The keynote speaker was Linda Madway, Vice President and General Counsel of RioCan who provided “fresh perspectives on the U.S. real estate market.”

The students were tasked with writing summaries of the break-out sessions focused on millennials, e-commerce, technology and other trends transforming the real estate industry; an examination of the multi-family sector and finding equity and debt in today’s evolving marketplace, as well as the luncheon presentation and dealmakers panel.
