“In our line of work, we learn a tremendous amount about where the market is, and where it’s headed, from key players in our industry,” said Knakal. “This conference is an opportunity for us to share this knowledge (and access to the key players) with the industry while simultaneously encouraging connections and further activity in the market. GreenPearl’s high-quality real estate industry conference platform enables us to do this with confidence.”

Keynote addresses by Mike Fascitelli of Vornado and Scott Rechler of RXR Realty are two highlights..

The event will begin at 8 a.m. with registration, a networking breakfast and opening of the exhibit hall. It will conclude with a post-conference networking/cocktail hour at 4:30 p.m.

The NY Bar Association is at 42 West 44th Street in Midtown Manhattan.
