What Will Be the Path Forward After the Pandemic?

A Hybrid Event on the 30th Anniversary of the Forum

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of our flagship event, The Real Estate Forum will be presented as a hybrid conference for the first time.  Everyone will have two options on how to attend and participate in a very compelling and insightful program.

One option will enable 700 executives to attend the program face-to-face at the Fairmont Royal York hotel. Unlike our pre-pandemic events, the maximum live attendance is constrained for a variety of reasons with COVID provincial government protocols being the most significant ones. Everyone attending the live portion will also need to be fully vaccinated with no exceptions.

Alternatively, you can participate in the Forum in a dynamic virtual environment. With many organizations not permitting air flights for staff for non-essential purposes (which includes conferences) and COVID protocols limiting indoor capacities in Ontario, we will ensure that the virtual experience is a very worthwhile one: save 45% on your registration while accessing 90% more content since the entire conference will be available on demand until the end of December.

Whether you are at the Royal York in person or attending virtually, an optimal participant experience will be offered to everyone including networking opportunities, high quality market intelligence, and the capability to connect with delegates in these unique market conditions.  That includes owners, developers, investors, lenders, lawyers, brokers and other intermediaries – prior to the Forum, throughout the two days, and following the event.

The program will include a considerable degree of thought leadership and valuable insights from some 85 well-known experts and practitioners from across Canada as well as the U.S., Europe and Asia. They will include Presidents, CEOs and Managing Partners of many of the largest and most successful Canadian and global real estate organizations.


From Transformative Trends and Challenges to Emerging Opportunities and Strategies

We have all recognized that a technologically driven revolution is fundamentally altering the way we live, work, socialize and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything the world has experienced to date. Moreover, it is impacting every industry in every country in some way. The breadth and depth of these changes will transform our industry and our society.  How will the pandemic impact and accelerate these transitions?  To what extent will our cities, our shopping, our housing and our workplace environments change?

Add to these many other issues – from DE&I. finding and retaining quality people to the ESG, impact investing and climate change. The 2021 Real Estate Forum will offer two hard-hitting information-packed days, examining key issues, trends, challenges, risks and opportunities in the acquisition, investment, management, financing, development, and leasing of all property classes – office, industrial, retail and multi-unit residential – all with the added bonus of keeping the industry connected live in person as well as virtually.

We will address major trends and provide valuable insights to assist you in developing strategies as you prepare for the path forward after the pandemic.

We hope that you will take advantage of this very informative national event which is only held once a year.
