Real Estate Owners To Gather To Progress The Urban Landscape
With 65% of the world’s population moving into urban areas over the next few decades, real estate owners have an unprecedented opportunity to unlock new streams of revenue while also helping to shape the fabric of our cities. For this reason, Honest Buildings, the only project management platform built for and backed by real estate owners, and Convene, a leader in servicing the next-generation of office buildings, will gather industry leaders for an exclusive event focused on how owners can progress the urban landscape.
The invite-only event, CATALYST, will take place on Friday, May 18th in New York City at Convene’s 117 West 46th Street location in Midtown West.
With a mix of keynotes and panels, the conference will feature owners at the forefront of this shift sharing how they’re making better decisions in this era of complexity. Industry leaders will break down which innovations, building enhancements and process improvements are worth investing in, and explore how owners can accommodate the next generation of tenants with aging building stock.
Headlining the conference will be keynote speaker Lisa Gansky, entrepreneur, investor, instigator, and the author of bestselling book, The Mesh: Why the Future of Business Is Sharing, who will speak about cities as platforms for our collective future.
