  • The Real Estate Paradox: Options and Investments
    10:45 AM - Room: Confederation 3
    While it seems like technology-based transformations should make the traditional office a thing of the past, when we look around us we see a healthy, robust global real estate market in which business are making huge investments, rents are high and vacancy rates are low. All this is occurring in the longest economic recovery cycle we have seen since the Great Depression. How is this possible?
