In the end of 2012, faith in the CRE market substantially dwindled as the industry became cautious with all the confusion and turmoil of our nationís capital and leadership. 2013 has seen a better outlook for the industry as it pulls away from the issues occurring in Washington, yet recent government restrictions and cuts will significantly impede growth of federal office buildings, causing a definitive hit to the market. Just how much of an impact will this and other developments have on the industry? Experts will divulge all this and more.

Forecasters indicate an undersupply of debt capital for the duration of the year. Largely due to the estimated $300 billion of refinancing for maturing loans decreasing lendersí ability to issue new ones, buyers continue to wait for banks to unload commercial assets at low prices. As the banking community shrinks into smaller groups of active lenders and new regulations restrict traditional lenders, CMBS begin to emerge as leading players in this market once again. Our panelists will detail how you can capture the financing you need.

While the US works to rebuild its own economy, many other countries still struggle to regain their footing post-recession. High-net worth investors in Asia, Europe and the Middle East look to protect their prized assets by investing in the more stabilized US market as opposed to their own. Canada, cushioned by their strong financial condition, look to the US after exhausting all possible investment opportunities in their own country. Where do these investors have their sights set and how can you get on their radar? And while foreign investors look to the US for safe investments, what countries are American investors zoned in on for better returns and diverse projects?Our panelists of actual active foreign investors will have the answers to these questions and more.

The numbers are trending positively when it comes to troubled assets. Trepp says the CMBS delinquency rate just saw its steepest one-month decline since 2009. The Mortgage Bankers Association's first-quarter report showed that CRE loan originations rose 9% year over year. Yet $367 billion of loans will mature this year, and while the CMBS market is gaining speed, it's not ramping up fast enough to close the gap. Our panel of experts will pinpoint where to find the opportunities on this landscape.
