Call for Submissions: Summit Journal (Summer 2020)

Publish your research, analyses, and ideas in the next issue of Summit, the official publication for international real estate investors focused on commercial property in the United States.

AFIRE seeks future-focused thought leadership across finance, investing, real estate, ESG, technology, management, demography, economics, and more.

Abstracts and proposals can be submitted by May 25 to Benjamin van Loon, Communications Director,

We want articles that challenge conventional thinking or present new approaches to old ideas.

Challenges to the status quo are more important than ever as we collectively form the vision of what the world will look like for our buildings, organizations, stakeholders, and communities in a world after COVID-19.

Topics are open. We are interested in 1,500-word articles with original ideas running across the full range of our industry‚ÄĒfuturism, capital markets, cross-border issues, global cities, policy, economics, technology, management, demographics, operations, and more.

We don’t assess proposals based on portfolios, seniority, or sponsorship dollars, which means that your ideas in Summit are a valuable opportunity for you to lead the conversation around real estate investment and engage with an international audience that values your thinking.

Let us know what you have in mind.
