Global Diversity Summit

Location: Atlanta, Georgia

The global recession took hold in 2008, with many cities experiencing a deep economic crisis early in 2009. In this context, national governments and intergovernmental organizations have played the major role in tackling the crisis with both new developments in regulation of financial services, bank recapitalization, fiscal stimulus packages, support for industries and companies, and assistance to workers displaced by the crisis. 

The commercial real estate and economic development actions that have been taken to respond to the crisis have been the foundation to further aid in community rebuilding efforts. What has emerged is a widespread conviction from national leaders that they take meaningful local steps to address the crisis.

The 2012 GDSummit presents “ReFocus…ReInvest…ReBound” as the three foundational pillars setting the tone for this year’s Summit and establishes the principals and conditions that will bolster an economic recovery in commercial real estate.
