The Cornell Real Estate Council (CREC), with the generous support of Cornell University, the Cornell Center for Real Estate and Finance, SC Johnson College of Business, Cornell Architecture Art & Planning and the Cornell Baker Program in Real Estate, is presenting the 38th Annual Cornell Real Estate Conference.

This year’s conference will be virtual, taking place over four days via a series of highly informative and engaging webinars featuring the industry’s top thought leaders. To address the pressing and prevailing themes of the day, our featured speakers will share their views of navigating the pandemic, planning for the future recovery, and addressing much-needed social change.

Due to our growing list of generous sponsors, we will not be charging a registration fee for this year’s conference. Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, alumnus, alumna or experienced professional, we hope you will join us for a powerful conference.
Kind Regards,
Alan Riffkin ’88, Alan Tantleff ’87 & Catherine von Seggern ’98
