AFIRE typically holds four educational conference each year, as well as exclusive brunch gatherings at MIPIM and EXPO REAL. Attendance at meetings is restricted to AFIRE members and specifically invited guests.
The Winter Conference is an annual two-day meeting held in February in New York City. Featured topics are specific to the US, with a portion directly focused on New York City and the surrounding areas. Results of the AFIRE Annual Foreign Investment Survey, a member survey highlighting trends in international real estate investment, are presented at the Winter Conference.
The European Conference takes place during June in a European city, previously held in Amsterdam, Cologne, London, Berlin and Paris. While there is always a focus on US real estate topics, there is also a strong focus on the local region and is opportune for global networking.
AFIRE's Annual Membership Meeting is held in September and encompasses all aspects of US real estate, with meeting locations rotating between Washington, DC, and other key US cities, including Boston, San Francisco and Chicago. Distinguished US policy makers and opinion leaders - including George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Madeleine Albright and Condoleezza Rice - are among the list of influential professionals who have spoken at AFIRE Membership Meetings.
Outreach Conferences have been held in various locations, such as Beijing, Stockholm, Melbourne, Toronto, Dublin and Dubai.
