This event is a prestigious annual conference that brings real estate industry experts to Miami, one of the world’s most vibrant and international cities, to share their perspectives on real estate investment, development, markets and the shaping of cities and regions.

With our annual Impact conference postponed due to the pandemic, we launched the monthly U-Talk on Real Estate Transformations Series featuring in-depth conversations with influential leaders on the transformations currently reshaping every sector of the real estate industry. Each monthly panel features leading executives and experts on a particular industry sector and delivers the most current perspectives and future outlook to our distinguished real estate advisory board members, our students, and alumni from our real estate programs in Architecture, Business and Law, who engage panelists in a high-level Q&A.

These events are initiation only, but board members are welcomed to invite colleagues and guests to attend, and recordings will be made public post-event.
