To talk about the troubled property markets: Villanova University's business school is hosting:

Dan DiLella, chief executive of office landlord BPG Properties; Brent Morris, of Capmark Investments; Joel Rassman, chief financial officer at homebuilder Toll Bros.; Richard Parkus of Deutsche Bank; Brian DiDonato of Sorin Capital Management; and UNC Prof. David Hartzell,

at Connelly Center's Villanova Room, 800 Lancaster Ave., 6 pm tomorrow, Thursday Oct. 1, says Shawn D. Howton, finance prof and director of the Daniel M. DiLella Center for Real Estate.

"We have 145 registered, as of now," Howton told me. UPDATE: "We're full," says Associate Director Tim Hoffman, no walk-ins. But people can watch an archive version, in about a week, at www.villanova.edu/business/excellence/realestate .

They'll talk about TARP, raising equity and debt, the frozen Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities market, and "potential trades" for distressed properties.
