CHICAGO – (9/26/16) – Excitement is building for the 2016 Global Symposium of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® in Amsterdam October 23-25. LeadingRE members from nearly 30 countries will be participating, including Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cayman Islands, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Panama, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, the UAE, United Kingdom and the U.S.

This is the 9th Global Symposium sponsored by LeadingRE for its members around the world, with previous locations in Dublin, Rome, Valencia, Madrid, Lisbon, Venice, Dubrovnik and Berlin.

“Our network doesn’t just feature dots on a map,” comments LeadingRE President/CEO Pam O’Connor.  “Globalization is an integral part of our culture. We bring top-performing real estate brokerages together from around the world at events like this to learn what is happening in global real estate. We foster close relationships, and as a result, our members have sent cross border referrals to over 90 countries in the past 12 months. Other real estate organizations talk about being global. We truly live it.”

The Amsterdam program will feature topics ranging from the global role of wealth management firms in real estate, to the impact of BREXIT, to what is happening in the Russian market. Keynote speaker Caspar Berry is a former poker player who uses that background and 15 years of media experience to offer unique insights on risk-taking and decision making. A special LeadingRE announcement is also slated for the opening session of the Global Symposium on October 24.
