CREFC Europe publishes Frothy Times programme for two-day autumn conference

CREFC Europe has published the programme for its two-day autumn conference in London, which will bring together the European real estate finance industry’s leading leaders, investors and advisers to debate market trends, prospects and challenges.

More than 350 market participants joined last year’s autumn event – and this year promises to be bigger still.

This November, CREFC Europe’s aim is to provide a richer debate and networking opportunity for market participants by bringing a more diverse audience to the event.

To that end, CREFC Europe has a limited number of complimentary passes for property owners to attend for free. Those interested should contact Carol Wilkie at

This two-day event – held over 9 and 10 November – will provide a platform for all commercial real estate (CRE) finance market participants to network, learn and discuss the major issues and opportunities facing the industry today.

The conference co-chairs – Lloyds Bank’s Madeleine McDougall, Reed Smith’s Tamara Box and Situs’ Lisa Williams – have put together a comprehensive agenda around a theme, dubbed Frothy Times£
