The FIABCI December Business Meetings are one of the annual FIABCI meetings which offer unique opportunities to promote and conduct business. The official FIABCI agenda was robust and included conferences and meetings for all FIABCI World Councils and Committees as well as working sessions, study tours, the General Assembly and an abundance of networking and marketing opportunities for members to showcase their properties and services on a global basis.
Highlights during the meetings included a private reception at the Australian Ambassador Hon.

There was also an official signing of a cooperative agreement between the World Bank and FIABCI to support the “Doing Business” project. This project provides objective measures of business regulations for local firms in 189 economies and selected sites. The signing of the cooperative agreement took place during a Gala Dinner at the World Bank. Social programs included a “Welcome Reception” hosted by NAR (National Association of Realtors) at their headquarters overlooking Capitol Hill, a FIABCI Young Members Evening of Fun, a State Department Tour, Monuments by Moonlight Tour and much more.
Delegates in attendance also had an opportunity to hear from some of the world’s leading real estate experts and participate in a host of informative and productive global real estate programs and meetings focusing on important topics within the real estate and real estate-related industries.
“Having the opportunity to host the annual December Business Meetings of the most representative real estate Federation in the world in Washington, DC, the USA Nation’s Capital, was an outstanding experience and provided an excellent forum for FIABCI members to participate in the discussion of international real estate and the conducting of business on a global basis,” explained Robyn Waters, FIABCI World President.
