The goal of the Nordic Real Estate Forum is to become the leading real estate forum in the Nordic and Baltic countries.

You have a possibility to listen to the TOP Keynote Speakers and take part of the discussion panels. Due to the challenging times, we have decided to organize a hybrid conference. This means that the forum will also be broadcasted online for those not able to travel to Tallinn.

This year, you can expect decision-makers and business leaders from Europe, Nordics, Baltics.

NOTICE! The organizers of the forum announce that according to the decision of the Government of the Republic of Estonia and the Health Board, it is mandatory to wear a mask at the forum. If you forget the mask, you can ask the organizers!
