2020: Why is Winnipeg Outperforming Many Other Canadian Cities?
Why is Winnipeg Outperforming Many Other Canadian Cities?
The 7th biennial Winnipeg Real Estate Forum will provide up-to-date and valuable insights on the trends and opportunities in the city located in the centre of the country. The conference will be held virtually on October 28 & 29, 2020.
While Vancouver has been evolving into a very dynamic market, why has there been strong interest in Winnipeg? The city has one of the most diverse economies of any major community in Canada that includes aerospace, agribusiness, apparel, education, finance and insurance, furniture, information technology, and transportation industries.
The result is an economic base that has a stable workforce and a cushion against any major fluctuations due to downturns in the economy. Winnipeg’s unemployment rate has been consistently well below the national average and is the second lowest among Canadian cities.
The Forum will offer a wide range of speakers, presentations and panel discussions on the economic drivers responsible for Winnipeg’s strong GDP; the major trends in the office, industrial, retail and apartment markets; the availability and cost of capital; and the broad range of development activity and opportunities.
However, a critical question is what impact has the COVID-19 pandemic has across the major property classes and to Winnipeg’s economy? Answers to this question will be integrated throughout the Forum.
The conference will offer value to asset managers, brokers, developers, investors, and others active in the acquisition, leasing, financing, management, and marketing of office, industrial, retail and multi-unit residential real estate.
The Winnipeg Real Estate Forum will help you determine what strategies to follow for 2021 and beyond.
We hope you will take advantage of this informative event.
