Where the Dream Takes You: Florida & the Southeast State of the Market & Regional Trends

The Southeast and Florida have been the target of significant in-migration ever since air conditioning became ubiquitous. Today is no different, and the pandemic has only accelerated the migration of both people and companies to the Southeast and Florida.

Streets of Gold: Real Estate Equity Investment and Debt Finance Trends

The pandemic initially upended most transactions, bringing deals to a screeching halt.

Further, with the recent change of power in Washington, a whole new set of risks and opportunities are emerging. How are you poised to benefit?

Nowhere to Go but Up: New York Development, Construction & Design Innovations

The pandemic has driven a number of changes in how development, construction & design are performed. Changes abound in how the work gets done on site as well as what designs, projects and product types make sense in today’s market. Demand has shifted significantly, and developers need to catch up. Priorities that were on the periphery are suddenly front and center as we all jointly tackle challenges to get the job done against profoundly difficult obstacles. And yet such hurdles if cleared can almost guarantee lucrative outcomes for those who succeed. Join this panel to hear from and connect with developers active in New York Tri-State area who are grappling with these challenges everyday.

Circle of Life: Navigating Leadership Challenges, Diversity & Inclusion in CRE

During a crisis, our brains are overwhelmed; data is incomplete, interests and priorities may conflict, and emotions and anxieties swell. It is during times like this that we can show our real mettle as leaders. At the same time, age old problems such as a lack of diversity in the commercial real estate industry do not go away, and in fact have become more prominent than ever. How do we navigate acute emergency situations while also keeping in mind our long term business goals? Join this panel to hear from and connect with key players who are proactively tackling leadership challenges, with a specific focus on diversity and inclusion.

Days in the Sun: California State of the Market & Regional Trends

California has long led the country in new regulations and taxes, in part due to its darling status over the last 170 years as a destination for inward migration and investment as well as its economic might on the global stage. Suddenly, there is a shift with current residents questioning the value of living in a state that is so highly regulated and taxed, leading to net out-migration from California. What does this mean for the future of commercial real estate in the state and where are the opportunities still to be found? Join this panel to hear from and connect with key players active in California markets.
