Bloomberg Gathers Real Estate Market Movers for Conference

October 25, 2011

New York — Investing in real estate requires knowledge,
connections and capital. With this in mind, Bloomberg LINK will
convene the most experienced voices in commercial real estate to
provide strategies and advice on how to survive the current
economic downturn and navigate through 2012 at the Bloomberg
Commercial Real Estate conference.

At the conference, to be held on Wednesday, November 9th at
Apella in New York City, speakers will discuss the outlook for
investment properties such as office buildings, hotels and
multi-family housing, trends in real estate investment trusts
and the future of the CMBS market. Top dealmakers and developers
will also provide valuable insight about the New York Market and
Larry A. Silverstein will give a personal update on the World
Trade Center.
