Québec's largest real estate leasing conference

Why attend?

How do you adjust and make the right decisions in a booming industrial market, an office market with a vacancy rate approaching 20% by 2023, and a growing retail market with ever-increasing demand?

What strategies will landlords use to attract customers with such a high vacancy rate? What land is still available to meet demand in the exploding industrial market?

The arrival of the REM is shaking up the rental market and could transform its landscape. Will this new accessibility and mobility change and expand the location of offices further into the suburbs?

This conference will be an indispensable tool for providing an overview of the best practices and strategies that have been implemented in recent months by the industry's leading specialists.

What you'll learn.

The agenda, put together with the help of our advisory council, focuses on the key topics including:

  • Landlord flexibility in leases: what options and incentives are put in place to retain and attract new tenants?
  • Amenities: attracting tenants, adding value and return on investment
  • Retail: the impact of rising demand on the rental market
  • ESG : Carbon neutrality and green leases, where to start?
  • Impact of TODs and particularly REM on the rental market
  • The investor's point of view: what are the banks' criteria on the markets today?

Who you'll meet.

Connect with 500+ investors, owners, developers, fund managers, brokers, property managers, architects, lawyers, and more.

We'll help you meet the people that matter through a range of networking opportunities including a drinks reception at the end of the conference.
