Dear Colleague:

New challenges arising from both internal and external market
forces have thrust real estate management to the forefront of
business strategy. Strategic decisions about property, its use, cost
and distribution are ever more integral to the life and health of
the corporation.

The goal of senior management is to create and maintain
business growth and flexibility. The evolving interdependence
of real estate practice, corporate and financial strategies, and
human resources demands new approaches to maximizing the
tangible assets at the nexus of business strength and flexibility.

This is the background for The Conference Board’s inaugural
corporate real estate conference. Please join us in New York this
September for an interactive discussion with industry leaders
and experts. I look forward to seeing you there.

Regards,




Peter Slatin

         Registration & Continental Breakfast: 8 - 9 am

Real Estate and the Competitive Advantage
         General Session A: 9:15 - 10:15 am

         An integrated real estate approach is a critical element of business growth.
         It enables informed strategic planning for everything from globalization
         and outsourcing to corporate finance and risk management or from
         resource allocation to partnering. And it is key for balancing short-term
         business strategies with long-term corporate objectives.

Corporate Real Estate ROI
         General Session B: 10:45 - 11:45 am

         Corporate real estate executives (CRE’s) are continually pressed to hold
         down costs as they manage changing real estate portfolios against volatile
         market conditions. Creating value for the corporation from one of the
         largest business expenses is imperative, especially as companies grapple
         with real estate’s impact on the corporate bottom line.

         Luncheon Address D: 12:45 - 2 pm


         Sponsored by:

         Meanwhile, the evolving marketplace of Fortune 1000 companies has
         placed new issues on the docket, from compliance to diversity and
         offshoring, so that the mergers of the mid-1980s and late 1990s are
         barely recognizable.

         Concurrent Session E1: 2 - 3 pm

         While landlords and end users typically have competing agendas, they
         can also enter joint ventures and other partnerships to take advantage of
         the increasing challenges of development and location. These and other
         strategies, including structured finance arrangements such as net leases
         and sale leasebacks are an increasingly important weapon in the corporate
         real estate arsenal.

         General Session F: 3:15 - 4:15 pm

         Demographers are warning of a huge workforce shortage as early as three
         to five years out. This will have an enormous impact on real estate-related
         issues from location flexibility to workforce readiness and mobility. Other
         issues include:
       • Employee attraction and retention
       • Workforce and vendor diversity
       • Balancing individual vs. group requirements

Growth Strategy and Outsourcing
         General Panel Session J: 10:45 am - 12 noon

         Outsourcing is now an established business strategy for growth but its
         applications continue to evolve, from shared services to offshoring.
         Today, managing these multiple approaches to achieving growth while
         controlling costs is a core management challenge in which corporate real
         estate plays a key role.
