Throughout history, pandemics have had the knack to expose certain vulnerabilities within our economic & social ecosystems. This past few years have seen the Montréal market go from a complete stop to a booming transactional environment for certain asset classes.

As a result, we have witnessed how unpredictable the real estate market can be as well as how fragile our world is.

All real estate companies have had to develop a very agile response to the pandemic. With remote working now part of the new working ecosystem, how has the office market been affected and what will be the lasting impact on the downtown core?

How will the office market bounce back? Can brick and mortar retail make a comeback? What are some of the potential trends on how conventional retail can co-exist with online shopping? How have industrial and multi-residential performed?

Climate change is also bringing major behavioral modifications in many aspects of our reality. Real estate is emerging at the forefront of this shift in many ways. ESG (Environmental, Social & Corporate Governance) along with impact investing and transparency & diversity are becoming an integral part of the C-suite vocabulary and corporate strategies.

A strong program of insightful speakers and presentations will also focus on the economic drivers responsible for the city’s growth along with the major trends in the office, industrial, retail, and multi-unit residential markets.

The 2022 24th annual Forum will be targeted as always at the interests of owners, investors, developers, asset managers, brokers, lenders, and other professionals active in the acquisition, leasing, financing, development, and management of commercial and residential real estate.

IDU Québec – the leading real estate association in the province – is the principal sponsor of the Forum.

Looking forward to seeing you at this conference!
