Attendees will discuss strategies to attract global investors to Detroit-area real estate

Detroit(November 22,2013) - The Detroit Chinese Business Association(DCBA) will host its first-ever "Revitalization & Real Estate" event on Friday, Dec 6,2013, at DTE Energy headquaters in Detroit. The breakfast forum will feature Detroit's premier business community and its leaders, including keynote speakers Andy Gutman (president, Farbman Group) and David Farbman (Principal, Farbman Group, and author, "The Hunt"). This meeting of minds event will highlight ways to foster the continued transformation of Detroit, and the region, through strngthened international relations between the Detroit real estate community and Chinese investors.

"This event is the perfect way to foster educational, informative discussions that will benefit anyone interested in the revitalization of Detroit." said David Farbman. "Detroit has already begun to see resurgence on the national stage, but we'd like to extend the view and commit to relationships that will enable the Motor City to compete globally and offer incentives for international investment."

Detroit is moving toward a comeback, and Chinese investors have taken note. Currently, the National Association of Realtors lists Detroit's real estate market among the top ficve cities most asked about from Chinese investors.
