AFIRE holds three educational and networking conferences 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, Barcelona, and Paris. While there is always a focus on US real estate topics, there is also a strong focus on the local region.
Annual Membership Meeting
The AFIRE 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 Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and Seattle. Distinguished US policymakers 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.
Beyond the core events, AFIRE periodically holds Outreach Conferences in various locations, such as Beijing, Stockholm, Melbourne, Toronto, Dublin, and Dubai.
