AFIRE’s virtual and in-person meetings and real estate events offer unique and exclusive access to in-depth market analyses, executive education, global experts and thought leaders, and networking with like-minded peers around the world.
Attendance at AFIRE events limited to AFIRE members and invited guests. All discussions are protected by the AFIRE House Rules.
Launched in early 2020, AFIRE Virtual Events provide a recurring digital format for AFIRE members to stay connected beyond in-person meetings. Themes focus on specialized and timely topics, as well as supporting ongoing education and research, all represented and advanced by AFIRE members.
AFIRE Virtual Events are recorded and made available for members only.
