Famous for his record-breaking performance and double-digit revenue increases, Joe Stettinius, chief executive of the Americas region for Cushman & Wakefield, will discuss what factors will decide the future of brokerages.

Other distinguished presenters include Yan Khamish, managing director of Ten-X; Scott Nelson, president of occupier services and corporate solutions for Colliers International; Yahkin Israel, CCIM, vice president of investment commercial real estate lending, southeast region, for Fifth Third Bank; Art Rendak, president of Inland Mortgage Capital; Chuck Taylor, managing director of RealtyMogul.com; and Glenn Muller, PhD, professor at the University of Denver.
