This year’s 12th CEDER conference will take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bucharest with new topics, speakers and attendees, CEDER 2019 looks set to welcome an ever-growing audience ready to network, develop new partnerships and hear first-hand how Romania’s real estate market will grow over the next 12 months.

Key topics this year will include rental market conditions, bank financing, investment-grade development sand the requirements of institutional investors and private equity.

The speakers chosen for CEDER are known business leaders from the top companies active in the property sector. Great care is taken each year to assemble a team of speakers who will captivate the delegates, and whose pedigrees and experience are varied enough to ensure a healthy mix of considered viewpoints. Attendees at CEDER are similarly diverse, coming from Austria, Czech Republic, Holland, Hungary, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Romania and the USA. Participants tend to be professionals in senior management positions at banks, developers, investment funds, private equity firms, real estate brokerages, government offices, contractors and other service providers.

One of the attractions of CEDER is the stunning urban backdrop, as the event takes place each year in the very heart of Bucharest, just moments away from the city’s beautiful Old Town. The Palace of Parliament, Liberty Park and the city’s many other historic gems are all within walking distance, as are a wide variety of high streets, retail passages and shopping zones. Meanwhile, Bucharest’s rich nightlife beckons for all those who have a free evening scheduled.

Held in the heart of Bucharest, the CEDER Gala Party is one of the key networking opportunities of the year for both locally and internationally-based professionals. Complete with food, entertainment and drinks, the CEDER Gala Party provides an enjoyable, professional atmosphere for doing business and socialising.
