Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® Global Symposium Brings Together Top Brokerages in Amsterdam

CHICAGO – (10/24/16) – For nine years, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® has gathered top independent real estate companies from around the globe for a two-day symposium. This year’s event takes place in Amsterdam October 23-25 where speakers at the symposium will present new research and data on the ways the real estate market is changing on a global scale.

This year’s event is particularly meaningful because it marks LeadingRE’s expansion into its 60th country and represents a record number of countries in attendance.

Symposium attendees include brokers and real estate leaders from 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 United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the U.S. attending. Previous Global Symposium locations included Dublin, Rome, Valencia, Madrid, Lisbon, Venice, Dubrovnik and Berlin.

“In the past month alone, we have added outstanding companies in Bulgaria, France, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, and the United Arab Emirates,” said Chris Dietz, LeadingRE vice president of global operations. “The phenomenal international growth we have achieved positions us as the global leader in terms of both coverage and performance.”

Also notable at the event is the debut of a new logo and marketing materials for members. The new logo encapsulates the brand’s identity as an international leader in real estate and as a mark of quality for the real estate companies that have been selected as members. Membership in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) is awarded only to market-leading companies that have demonstrated excellence in service delivery and results.

The Amsterdam program includes a range of timely topics from the newest research on the role of wealth management firms in real estate to what is happening in key markets around the world. U.K.-based 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.

“The symposium is an important part of our yearly calendar of events we provide for our members,” comments LeadingRE President/CEO Pam O’Connor. “As a global organization, we value these times when we can bring leaders in real estate markets around the world face-to-face with one another. The connections that this event fosters are priceless, and as a result, our members have sent cross border referrals to over 90 countries in the past 12 months.”
