ATLANTA, Nov. 4, 2011  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CoreNet Global, the world's leading professional association for corporate real estate and workplace executives, is hosting its Global Summit in its headquarters city of Atlanta, November 6-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center.

CoreNet Global Summits assemble a forum of the leading thinkers and strategists in corporate real estate from around the world.
