Advancing technology, unconventional financing, demographic demands, creative spaces, environmental mandates and smart buildings all are reshaping commercial real estate. Focusing on more than millennials and trends, leading experts will discuss how New York real estate is adapting. Is the CRE capital of the world on the cutting edge of trends or merely keeping up? This information-packed session will provide insight into how to remain relevant, take advantage of differentiators, and not just survive, but thrive.
