25th Annual REIT Symposium (Cancelled)

Dear Colleagues,

Along with the rest of the industry, we have been closely monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 coronavirus and evolving guidance from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and others. After careful consideration and extensive consultation, we have determined that we must cancel the 25th Annual REIT Symposium, scheduled for March 31. This was a difficult decision, but one that reflects our highest commitment to the health and well-being of the community.

Sponsorship gifts and registration fees for this year's Symposium will be refunded automatically in the coming weeks. If you have questions about your refund or any other conference matter, our events staff is ready to assist. You can reach Monica Estrada, senior director of events, at monica.estrada@nyu.edu or +1 (212) 998-7036.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our conference chairs, Adam Emmerich and Robin Panovka, for assembling a truly extraordinary roster of speakers for our 25th anniversary conference, as well as our generous sponsors, illustrious speakers, and conference participants.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the Schack Institute. We look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled 25th Annual REIT Symposium on April 6, 2021. Please save the date.

Sincerely,

Sam Chandan, PhD
