Exploring the theme of “Cities of the Future,” the summit connects thought leaders from the built environment (including construction, real estate, facility management and valuation) to tackle the issues facing Canada’s largest city and other major cities in the country.

Hear from Toronto Mayor, John Tory, and prominent industry leaders from the region as they add their voices to the discussion started at the first summit in Houston. Each summit circles back to the global themes of resilience, investment risk, infrastructure and new technology from a local perspective.

Join us for a chance to participate in the conversation in an exclusive venue with your peers, a chance to network and discuss the future of work in your industry.

Who will attend?

The RICS Summit Series Americas 2018 draws professionals not only from the Americas but from around the world. Delegates will include:

  • C-suite executives and senior managers specializing in commercial property development, construction, real estate finance and brokerage
  • Institutional and private equity investors and pension funds
  • Financial institutions and commercial lenders
  • Investment bankers, research analysts and financial advisors
  • Lawyers, accountants and other specialists in real estate finance

What should I expect?

Speakers at the Summits include local politicians, qualified professionals and industry leaders. What connects them all is an interest in building and investing in the cities of the future.

"Each summit looks at global issues like rapid urbanization, rising sea levels and climate change from local and regional perspectives,” said Peter Smith FRICS, RICS Governing Council member, Americas Chair and an Executive Director with Ernst & Young in the Property Tax Services Group. Also, at each stop we value a local icon. We started with the Johnson Space Center in Houston and recently Disney World in Miami. In Toronto, we'll learn the real price tag of the CN Tower.

Another highlight has been the PropTech panels featuring CEOs of tech start-ups highlighting how data can be harnessed to improve construction practices, enable more energy efficient facility management, data-driven investments and decision-making.

Real estate thought-leaders have been actively debating whether we’re in the midst of a bubble and how valuation and mitigation measures can insulate investors against risk.


We have gathered the foremost thought leaders and innovators in our industry.

Gain insight and perspective from presenters well-versed in global issues, challenges and opportunities facing professionals today.

Keynote speaker: John Tory, Mayor of Toronto.

We are pleased to announce that the program will include a luncheon keynote led by Barden Prisant, FRICS titled “What price is the height of excellence? Valuing the CN Tower"
