CCIM Institute to showcase area markets at international property forum in Cannes, France, March 15-18
WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Already actively engaged in the global arena, CCIM Institute will leverage its international presence by cultivating new partners from multiple countries. To advance this goal, 2016 CCIM Institute President Steven Moreira, CCIM, will meet with many international commercial real estate leaders at MIPIM, the international property market forum, March 15-18, in Cannes, France.
“MIPIM is an ideal opportunity to strategically cultivate new global relationships,” Moreira says. “Additionally, face-to-face meetings with our internationally based colleagues allow us to broaden the reach of the CCIM designation.”
CCIM Institute will join the growing USA pavilion, hosted by the National Association of Realtors at MIPIM for the second year, gaining access to 21,000 participants from 89 countries, including 4,800 investors. CCIM Institute members who attend will receive a significant discount on registration from NAR. The strong CCIM presence reinvigorates business opportunities for CCIM members beyond U.S. borders. The international roster of attendees includes those actively involved in property investment and leasing; project funding, planning, and execution; portfolio management; and urban planning.
“Participating in MIPIM gives the CCIM Institute the chance to explore how fast and how aggressively we should move forward with CCIM training in different countries,” Moreira says. “Every day, international boundaries are getting more fluid. The CCIM Institute is training people to gain the skill set to interact in global markets.”
Industry research shows international buyers plan to invest more cash in U.S. real estate in 2016 compared to 2015. While 2015 saw massive inflows of foreign capital to the U.S. market, 64 percent of international investors surveyed by the industry association AFIRE plan to increase U.S. property investments in 2016.
MIPIM is the world’s leading property market, gathering influential participants from all international property sectors including investors, developers, occupiers, architects, hotel groups, public authorities, city mayors, and property associations, while providing access to thousands of development projects and sources of capital worldwide.
