Why Has Vancouver Ranked Once Again as the Top Market to Watch in Canada? Join Us to Learn the Answers
Why is Vancouver continuing to perform as a very dynamic market during these very challenging times? Is this market immune to the effects of COVID-19? Notwithstanding the once-in-a-lifetime public health crisis, Vancouver continues to be an attractive place to live and conduct business. This has helped cement its status as a safe haven for investment – even with today’s uncertainty. You will learn more details about these factors throughout the Forum.

The Forum has evolved since its inception in 1994 to become the largest annual conference on investment, development, leasing and financing in the GVRD and Lower Mainland.

How will Vancouver perform over the next twelve months? What are the challenges and what are the opportunities in this market during the pandemic and potentially in the future?

Join a wide range of executives from across the country to learn why and how this market continues to exceed many expectations.

The Forum has developed this reputation by offering high-quality speakers and an insightful program focusing on key issues, challenges and opportunities in office, industrial, multi-residential and retail in the Vancouver and the Lower Mainland markets. The topics have been of particular interest to real estate owners, investors, developers, lenders, brokers and other intermediaries.

We hope you will take advantage of this once a year event and look forward to welcoming you over the two days.
