RICS World Built Environment Forum - May 13-14

The 2019 RICS World Built Environment Forum will be held on May 13-14 at the Conrad New York in Battery Park City, Manhattan. The summit brings together recognized experts and industry leaders for a diverse and exciting range of keynotes and panels on how to create positive change in the built environment, covering topics from investment, technology, workplace and finance to infrastructure, development, construction and sustainability.

More specifically, the event conversations will focus on our ever-changing geopolitical landscape and how to make informed public and private investments in the world and manage future risk in the urban and natural environments against, for instance, resource scarcity and climate change, and how to navigate the circular economy. Over two days, the panels and keynotes will feature public figures such as former Senator Jeff Flake, innovative business leaders such as Kate North of Colliers and Parag Khanna of FutureMap and industry influencers such as Ed Walter of the Urban Land Institute and Elizabeth Yee of 100 Resilient Cities, among many others. (

RICS is a global professional body promoting and enforcing international standards in the valuation, management and development of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. The organization accredits more than 130,000 professionals in those industries to assure responsible business practices for the benefit of all.
