What Happens in Vegas…

There’s no better place to make a deal than the city that built its legacy on deal making — Las Vegas. But what happens in Vegas Oct. 15–16 at the CCIM Live! fall conference won’t stay in Vegas: You’ll walk away with an inside look at the “new normal” for underwriting deals in the current market, an exclusive view of where the economy — and commercial real estate — is headed in 2013, and an expanded professional network of CCIMs who are ready to do business.

CCIM has created a lineup of educational sessions, speakers, and networking events that will improve your odds for success. With the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino as the backdrop, you’ll hear from a panel of the industry’s top lending executives on what it takes to secure financing for deals and how to get creative with transaction-funding alternatives. In addition, three of commercial real estate’s leading economic experts, including Mark G. Dotzour, director of research and chief economist at Texas A&M University’s Real Estate Center, will share their perspectives on the economic and property market conditions that will impact your business in the year ahead.

Finally, you won’t want to miss keynote speaker James Murren, chairman and chief executive officer of MGM Resorts International. He is best known for his work on the Las Vegas CityCenter, which is distinguished as one of the largest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified projects in the world. He’ll share the experiences that inspired him to create Las Vegas’ first urban center as well as his unique views on today’s commercial real estate market.

Mark your calendar to join CCIM for this one-of-a-kind event and get ready to make a deal!
