CIO Forums

About CIO Forums

The Realcomm CIO Forum series is open to CIOs and other senior IT professionals in the commercial real estate development, REIT, owner, brokerage, investment management and related service industries in selected markets globally — New York, Sydney, Toronto, London, Chicago and San Francisco.

Each Forum is hosted by prominent local CIOs who volunteers their time and efforts in order to help facilitate the educational portions of these meetings.

The format generally includes both a "working" hosted luncheon and one or two presentations delivered by prominent local commercial real estate CIOs or, in some cases, guest speakers from outside our industry. As we strive to maintain high standards for participation, the Forums are "by invitation" only and seating is very limited.
