Nareit’s REITweek is always an important industry event providing a key touchpoint between REITs and their investors near the midway point of each year. This year was no exception.
Last week, 2,800 members of the REIT community convened at the New York Hilton Midtown for Nareit’s REITweek: 2018 Investor Conference. Among those in attendance were more than 750 investors.
This year, 116 REITs and publicly traded real estate companies presented during the event. (Archived audio webcasts of the company presentations are available through REIT Stream.) REITweek also offered an opportunity for investors to hold one-on-one meetings with executives of the more than 200 REITs in attendance.
