RealTrends Powers you with the Information you Need: Proptech, Cannabis, Sharing Economy, Legal Innovations, Leasing Strategies, Operations and Management Innovations and More...

This focused program is designed to meet the needs of executives who are responsible for their organizations asset and portfolio management strategies and leasing and legal executives looking to unlock value.

Today’s environment is fast paced, global, constantly changing, has increased transparency and greater forms of regulatory requirements that impact governance. Everyday stresses and pressures seem to compound and demand financial, operating, and property information on every aspect of the business.

Real-time interaction with tenants, buildings, buyers, and sellers is also in high demand. Just how is technology facilitating these relationships and how are owners and managers staying up to date on all these changes?

RealTrends will help you prepare your business and assets for the rapidly evolving future.

RealTrends will provide participants with strategies to increase top line revenue, streamline operations and cut overall costs.

RealTrends is a one-day conference being held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on September 17, 2019. This conference will attract leaders and executives in the Canadian real estate market who embrace the importance of being informed and keeping ahead of the curve with technological advancements and innovative value creation strategies in their market.

All elements of production in commercial real estate are influenced by leasing and effective asset management which is increasingly being tied to innovations in technology; the ability to manage this influence and stay ahead of the PropTech curve can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of delivering to your organization’s bottom line.

It is irrefutable that the internet and technology continue to change the way we do business. Over the past few years we have seen a shift to focus on PropTech across the industry. As products, solutions, and services are strategically adopted, technology’s role in the commercial real estate industry continues to increase. As such, REALPAC and Informa Canada, the producers of RealTrends, are extremely excited to host this conference to provide insight and knowledge on technology within the commercial real estate industry in additional to other new and innovative asset/portfolio, leasing and legal trends.

The conference program will include speakers with vast knowledge in the commercial real estate management, technology, leasing and legal sector. In keeping with the strong reputation of the forums, the RealTrends will present high-quality speakers on very topical issues at a relatively low registration fee.

Opportunities for networking will also be available throughout the conference.
