Partnerships and events


Our partnerships with faculty, industry and community are a critical component of the centre’s infrastructure. We welcome collaborative conversations to enhance the centre’s capacity to build amazing cities and communities with a healthy business core.

We are proud of our partnerships. To name a few with whom we work closely: Alberta Real Estate Foundation, NAIOP, BOMA, City of Edmonton, Alberta Chambers of Commerce, Retail Council of Canada and the Urban Development Institute.


City Building Conference

We are breaking down silos to bring together academic staff and faculty along with industry experts and government leaders to advance the study and conversation that is City Building. More information, including a registration link, will be added to this page closer to the conference.


VIP Night

This networking event kicks off the school year with an opportunity to meet the University of Alberta Real Estate Club Executive team as well as other classmates. Attendees will also meet with young professionals from the industry while learning about the variety of career opportunities that exist in Real estate.


Real Estate Day

Real Estate Day (REDay) is a more formal opportunity to learn about the broad spectrum of careers that exist within Real Estate. The atrium will be filled with booths representing a variety of companies where a certificate in real estate would be considered an asset. Students are welcome to network and ask questions about potential entry-level jobs, as well as career growth opportunities.


Career Forum

The Career Forum takes place on REDay and is an opportunity to listen to a panel of professionals that represent several industry sectors. They will discuss their sector and the career path they took to get where they are. There is also an opportunity for a Q & A period and networking. 


Industry Night

At Industry Night, students and industry professionals will be treated to a keynote address by a notable business leader, as well as an evening of speed networking. As this event is held early in the second semester of the school year, it is a great opportunity to start talking about summer jobs or potential careers after graduation with the prominent industry representatives that attend.



Leaders Lounge

The Leaders Lounge is a student-focused event that brings in forefront leaders who play an important role in our communities to share their experiences both in the workplace and throughout their lives. These events provide students with an intimate and candid look at how these leaders got to where they are today.
