Calgary’s commercial real estate market has shifted to a tenant-friendly market and the upcoming Strategy and Leasing Conference will inform attendees on how to negotiate their contracts with owners.

The Leasing Conference takes place May 25, 2017 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:55 p.m. at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre. The event will focus on strategies, issues, practices and trends in real estate leasing in office, industrial and retail markets.

Highlights of the forum include: a legal panel on the top five current leasing issues specific to the Calgary market; a panel on tenant preferences that determine leasing choices; a conversation surrounding how to reposition vacant space as office market vacancy continues to rise and a keynote presentation discussing how the province’s economic downturn has forced the city to reimagine its downtown.

Industry leaders such as Bentall Kennedy’s Vice President of Leasing Bill Richards and Oxford Properties’ David Routledge, vice president of real estate management will be present.

Attendance rates are considerably cheaper than similar Vancouver and Edmonton events. Visit to register for the conference. Tickets are $257.25 if purchased before April 26 and $309.75 thereafter. Group rates are available for companies with five or more attendees.
