Largest annual Forum in Vancouver for the real estate industry
As we enter into market conditions that include higher-than-expected inflation and increasing interest rates, the Vancouver Real Estate Forum will focus on what potentially lies ahead for this Western Canadian market and what opportunities are being created.
The current state of the real estate market and how the region has performed over the past year will be examined.
The Vancouver Real Estate Forum will focus on office, retail, industrial, and multi-residential market activity from the perspective of investment, development, financing, and leasing.
