Annual Real Estate Panel

Event Description

The impact of COVID-19 on the global economy and the real estate industry made 2020 the most memorable year in recent history. Real estate firms were forced to digitize operations, close physical facilities due to extensive lockdowns, and prepare for reopening, all while ensuring the health and safety of employees and occupiers, and considering the financial health of tenants and end users. 

Join us for an enlightening panel discussion focused on the outlook for the real estate sector in 2021 and beyond.  We are fortunate to have the following real estate experts leading the discussion:
