In addition to Kelly, Denver-based scheduled speakers will include Terry Considine, CEO and chairman of Apartment Investment and Management Co., better known as Aimco, and Walter Isenberg, president and CEO of Sage Hospitality. The NAREE event also will draw chief economists from five real estate groups.
The conference will be held from June 20-23. Panels will be held at the Brown Palace Hotel.
