“As an attendee, the Ascent experience is second to none. In terms of the quality of the peer set that’s here, the exposure you get to capital partners, to possible JV partners. It’s done in such a casual and fun setting that you really develop bonds and relationships with people that last more than just a couple days.”

The Ascent Community

Inside The Invite-Only Retreat For Real Estate’s Emerging Elite

White sand, blue water and unparalleled access to the brightest emerging minds in real estate: That’s what awaits the handful of dealmakers lucky enough to earn an invite to Ascent, Bisnow’s annual retreat for the most promising owners, developers and investors in the industry.

Advance your career

Our attendees arrive with vastly different backgrounds. Some have just founded their own companies. Others are two decades into their careers and about to take over the reins at their firms. Some are looking for their next career step, others have just settled in to what they hope is their last position.

Meet your peers

Ascent brings together some of the most influential owners, developers and investors in the industry. Our team curates programming to make sure every attendee is surrounded by the players they want to meet and the ideas they want to explore.

Learn from the best

Ascent offers attendees an opportunity not only to learn from each other but also to attend TED-style lectures on a diverse range of topics, from building a personal and professional brand to the future of cities and tech.

Make deals away from prying eyes

Our curators hand-pick everyone at Ascent to ensure that 90% of our attendees are on the principal side of the industry. Only 10% of the attendees are service providers, and they are best-in-class for their industry niche.

Step outside the office

Between speed dealmaking and tribe sessions attendees can be found paddleboarding on Biscayne Bay, sampling rare vintages and touring South Beach on a fleet of electric bicycles.

Build a network in paradise

85% percent of attendees have returned for multiple years or sent a colleague from their firm to Ascent. Your fellow attendees are your focus group, not just when you come to Ascent, but long after you leave and every year you come back.
