WELCOME! 

We are living in unprecedented times - the roaming coronavirus has shifted the fundamentals of our industry and has left many questioning - what can I do in the meantime whilst the world is grappling with a plethora of restrictions?

 

We have put together this FREE virtual event to discuss strategies and ideas that will take our industry further, be it new concepts, technology, design, architecture, sustainable developments, investments or change in business models. 

 

There will be ample networking opportunities throughout the day as well as a unique possibility to set up meetings in advance. Follow the instructions upon registration to set up your profile if you so wish.
