CAPRE’s Fifth Annual Newark CRE Summit

Organizer's Welcome Letter

Welcome, From The Organizers

July 3, 2019

CAPRE will host its 5th Annual NEWARK CRE SUMMIT on July 18, the premier conference for active developers, investors, debt sources, equity sources, architects, engineers, end-users/tenants and consultants. This full-day, high-level summit will feature 30+ industry thought leaders in keynote interviews and panel discussions.

Indeed, more than 250 attended our NEWARK CRE SUMMIT in 2018. We expect a similar, perhaps larger turnout on July 18 this year. If you are active or interested in NEWARK, you will want to make plans to attend our conference, which will be held at Robert Treat Hotel. Senior-level decision makers from both public and private sectors will attend for important industry discussion, debate and networking.
