REAL ESTATE - The IPE Real Estate Investor Forum and Awards 2006 are taking place at the Amsterdam Hilton on June 1 – and now’s your chance to make your nominations.

“The awards are the first event to honour investors and service providers alike for performance, transparency and innovation in investing within the real estate sector,” says IPE Real Estate Editor Ashley Nield.

The awards are split into two distinctive areas – investor and service provider.

The event follows the successful inaugural IPE Real Estate Investor Forum 2005 held in Barcelona – which was attended by more than 60 capital owners, representing some €9.5bn invested in real estate.

“The Investor Forum has been designed to provide European capital owners (pension funds, insurance companies, charities and foundations) with a ‘safe environment’ where they can discuss, learn and exchange ideas between themselves plus listen to leading global industry professionals about the new and creative developments occurring within the real estate market,” Nield says.

Investors are invited to nominate who they think have been the best providers in the industry. There are awards for: best investment manager, best securities investment manager, best investment consultancy and Outstanding Industry Contribution Award.
