“San Diego has a long history of collaborating with other cities and countries to create more economic growth opportunities,” said Cory Shepard, Board President of SDAR. “San Diego also is home to a wealth of creative talent in life sciences, high-tech, cyber technology, clean technology and blue technology. It's one of the reasons why San Diego is such a fantastic place to invest and do business.
“As much as I love to talk about San Diego, I need to stress that the International Real Estate Congress is bigger than San Diego. This event will showcase impressive projects from all corners of the globe. The goal is to connect capital with investment-ready projects, to network and to share best practices. I can't think of a better location for the Congress than San Diego.”
