Opal Group organizes premier conferences catered to top executives and decision makers throughout various industries.

We are dedicated to providing high-quality events and information, through unparalleled speaking sessions, workshops, and unique face-to-face networking opportunities.

Headquartered in New York City, Opal Group has grown to produce more than 50 events annually across the globe.

Opal Group produces educational and networking conferences for C-Level executives working in finance, health care, pharmaceuticals, energy and technology. Our events are held in high-end venues throughout the United States, South America, and Europe.

What Makes Us Different

Our conferences offer a combination of discussions, hands-on workshops, panels, one-on-one meetings, and roundtables to ensure that the right information is delivered in the right format. We take pride in our dialogue-driven panel discussions led by industry leaders.

We believe an important part of our role is that of a “relationship broker.” Opal Group ensures that each conference provides ample opportunity for our delegates to create meaningful relationships with like-minded professionals. We offer unique networking environments that elevate the conference experience for the participants.

Our History

Founded by Abe Wellington in 1998, Opal Group started in a small humble office in Mount Kisco, NY. The first few conferences the company produced were a monumental success and quickly propelled Opal Group as a key player in the industry. It wasn’t too long before the company outgrew the small office and moved to New York City.

As the company grew, Opal Group added more conferences in the finance industry to its repertoire. Shortly after that growth helped thrust the company to the next level, Opal Group decided to pursue other industries.

Now, Opal Group organizes conferences in various industries including, Finance, Life Sciences, Medicare, Facilities Management, and Athletics.

Real Estate Investment Summit 2018

Eden Roc Miami Beach Resort, Miami, FL
March 25, 2018 – March 27, 2018


By nature, commercial real estate is a complicated, capital intensive and relationship oriented business.

From finding and researching a commercial real estate asset, to negotiating its price and raising capital, to operating in accordance with a business plan, to selling the asset and distributing the revenue, each step is critical to the success of the overall picture and each participant is owed a specific fee.

The Opal Group 2018 Real Estate Investment Summit is centered on the “fourth asset class,” commercial real estate—today a capital market instrument as much as the stock or bond market. Our program agenda will explore both the role of both public and private real estate, both equity and debt.

Like the asset class itself, the people attending and participating in the Real Estate Investment Forum are vibrant and outward looking. Join us in March 25-27 in Miami and prove us right.

Presented as a series of panel discussions, the 2018 Real Estate Investment Summit will feature senior level fund and manager research as well as asset allocation personnel who will debate and explore the market for investing in commercial real estate. NOTE: Panel discussion will follow a “talk show” format led by a moderator. Panelist use of Microsoft PowerPoint is prohibited.
