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 is what awaits the handful of deal-makers lucky enough to earn an invite to Ascent, Bisnow’s annual retreat for the most promising owners, developers and investors in the industry.

At the 1 Hotel in Miami Beach, the next generation of real estate luminaries will gather for two days of networking, professional development and wellness. Originally conceived of as an event for the industry’s 45-and-under set to forge bonds and make deals, Ascent has become the premier annual event for real estate professionals looking to take their careers to the next level.

Read on to dive deeper inside the world of Ascent.

Ascent will take place Nov. 4-5 at the 1 Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.

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.

But Ascent attendees have a few things in common: They are between 30 and 45 years old, in charge of closing deals at their firms and eager to engage with their peers as they grow their businesses to new heights.

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.

At daily “tribe sessions,” attendees are broken up into curated, closed-door groups of around 12 people based on shared interests and potential business synergies.

From conversations on the changing retail landscape to balancing board meetings with family outings, Ascent attendees can share their concerns and solicit advice in a confidential, low-pressure environment.

Relax and recharge

Ascent asks its participants to step outside the office. Between speed deal-making and tribe sessions, attendees can be found paddleboarding on Biscayne Bay, sampling rare vintages and touring South Beach on a fleet of electric bicycles.

The event also emphasizes wellness and balance between attendees’ careers and personal lives. From yoga sessions to mindfulness and meditation workshops, attendees can find opportunities to recharge and build strategies to handle stress in their work.

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.

Curators invite speakers on the cutting edge of business, technology and personal development to share their best practices beyond the scope of CRE.

Build a network in paradise

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