Past Summit: Orlando 2008 - Opening Page
The CoreNet Global Summit offers opportunities to network, learn and be recognized for your achievements. Case study presentations, interactive learning sessions, industry tours of the host city, smaller interest group activities, Executive Development training and continuing education - all in one place and in one week! Following is a chronological activities summary, designed to guide you through the Summit experience.
Executive Development Program
The Executive Development Program (EDP) enables you to optimize your ability to drive business performance. By participating in either the Senior Leader of Corporate Real Estate (SLCR) or Master of Corporate Real Estate (MCR) Series, you will learn from industry experts who bring a high level of knowledge, intellectual capital, best practices and case studies - shared in a classroom setting. The MCR or SLCR designations enhance your credibility and provide value in an increasingly competitive marketplace. These seminars are 2 days in length, held on Saturday and Sunday prior to the beginning of the Summit, and provide an intensive learning experience on a single topic.
Beginning on Sunday and throughout the Summit, there are many networking events ranging from large-scale receptions to smaller, more intimate and focused gatherings, such as the Young Leaders Reception, Chapter Receptions and Hospitality events.
Monday morning kicks-off with the first of three general sessions, featuring prominent speakers and topics like the Summit theme, leadership, or motivation. General sessions often include awards and recognition, not to mention the giveaway of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle during the closing General Session. Sit next to someone you know or meet someone new and expand your network.
Tuesday morning begins with Mega Sessions – medium-sized group sessions (between 200-500 attendees each) that address topics directly related to the Summit theme and feature professional, primarily academic, speakers. These speakers generally draw conclusions across large bodies of work, including research and case study examples.
Concurrent breakout sessions enable smaller groups (between 50-150 participants each) to examine featured case studies and engage in straight talk, enabling industry-specific insights on topics of general interest and the theme of the Summit. The 45- and 90-minute sessions are grouped by topic (tracks) so that you can easily find material that you are interested in. Breakouts occur on Monday morning and afternoon, and again on Tuesday morning and afternoon in-between General Sessions.
CoreNet Global EXPO
Over 150 exhibiting companies come together at the Summit, to bring you the latest innovations and solutions to your real estate challenges. The EXPO opens on Monday for an energetic lunch buffet, and stays open through Tuesday afternoon to offer information, networking opportunities, and great door prizes presented by sponsoring companies.
Knowledge Communities Networking Events
Knowledge Communities are interactive special interest groups organized by members around topics and industries of interest. Communities meet at various times throughout the Summit to discuss important issues, network with other members, share best practices and interact with thought leaders.
Come PAINT with us and make a difference at our Community Reinvestment Challenge (CRC)!
Providing images of hope and healing, the CoreNet Global Summit in Orlando will lead a CRC volunteer effort, along with the help of the Foundation for Hospital Art, to put paintbrush to canvas and create murals that will hang throughout the Orlando Children's Home. No painting skills required!
