Roundtable Program

Attendees watch a presentation at a Real Estate Center Roundtable event

The Real Estate Center, in conjunction with our Premier Partner, PNC Bank, is proud to present our 37th season of networking, national and international speakers, and access to industry leaders.

Roundtable Series

In 1983, the UC Real Estate Roundtable was created to establish and maintain links between the university and the business and real estate communities. The Roundtable series features guest speakers who present their ideas, thoughts and perspectives on topics that impact the real estate industry. The Roundtable Series strives to:

  • Encourage interaction between real estate professionals and UC students and faculty.
  • Address issues and topics relevant to the real estate industry and leading professionals.
  • Expose real estate professionals to industry research conducted at UC and elsewhere.

During the 2019-20 year, our membership consisted of more than 300 industry leaders. As our numbers continue to grow, the roundtable promises to be a rich opportunity for high-quality programming and networking.

Roundtable Events

Our fall Roundtable programs are virtual events via Zoom and free of charge. Log-in instructions for those registering for the online event will be provided 48 hours prior to the event. Note there is a limit of 300 registrants for each event.
