KBRA Releases CREFC Miami 2019 Recap – Day 1

January 15, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 15, 2019--The annual January CREFC conference in Miami kicked off its 20th year with a record number of just under 1,900 registered attendees. Annemarie DiCola, CREFC Chair, welcomed attendees and noted that it was the organization’s 25th anniversary year. She further noted how the organization has matured and developed into a robust trade organization with a vast network of CRE constituents. Given the stage of the organization’s growth, one of the key initiatives for 2019 is to take a fresh look at its strategic plan to chart the organization’s course for the future. To facilitate the planning, working groups have been assembled to focus on key topics and, ultimately, formulate a survey seeking member input.

The remarks were preceded by the organization’s forum sessions in the morning. These included the B-Piece Investor Forum, Portfolio Lenders Forum, CMBS Secondary Market Liquidity Task Force, Servicers Forum, Investment-Grade Bondholders & Issuers Forum, HYDRA Session, and GSE Multifamily Forum. The forums, which were closed to the media, covered a variety of topics germane to each forum’s focus.
