Speaking Engagement

2nd Annual GreenPearl Midwest: Beyond Distress

The 2nd Annual GreenPearl Midwest: Beyond Distress conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Chicago Metro on Thursday, May 12, 2011 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Chicago. This conference brings together the entire Midwest Real Estate market under one roof for one, highly efficient day of debate, discussion, learning, and networking.

Kirkland partner Stephen G. Tomlinson will be speaking on the "Big Deal!: Large Investors, REITS, and Funds Discuss their 2011 – 2012 Plans" panel. The panel will discuss what large funds, developers, investors, and REITs, that can only move a small percentage of their capital in any given year - meaning that they need to anticipate trends, have in store for the next 12 to 24 months. What do Duke Realty, Hines, Equity Group, and their brethren have planned to meet or exceed investors expectations going forward? Where are the REITS and funds looking for deals, and where are they placing capital in the Midwest? How can smaller companies ride their coattails and learn from the initiative of the larger players?
