The 18th annual Edmonton Real Estate Forum will tackle the big question plaguing the Prairie commercial real estate market: just how much has the market been affected by the global decline of oil prices?
The forum will provide asset managers, brokers and investors tips and advice on how to combat the challenges in investing in Edmonton during this recession and when they can expect energy prices to improve.
The conference takes place Thursday, May 11 from 7 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. The program includes presentations and speeches by finance and real estate professionals’ firms such as Bentall Kennedy, ATB Financial and Colliers International.
There are three batches of concurrent sessions throughout the day and attendees will choose one from each to attend. Sessions include: Why Are New Retail Developments & New Tenants Coming into the Edmonton Market if the Economy is No Good? presented by Altus Group; A Hop, Skip and a Jump Away: What is on the Horizon for Neighbouring Municipalities? sponsored by iA Financial Group; and What are Entrepreneurs Doing to Succeed in a Wave of Uncertainty? sponsored by Pinchin West.
The keynote speaker will be Don Iveson, mayor of Edmonton, in conversation with Cory Wosnack, principal and managing director of Avison Young. The discussion will examine the City of Edmonton’s growth management policies and how they will impact the city’s infrastructure and development.
