REAL ESTATE FORECAST 2021
Resilience and Recovery: Rebuilding a City and Region
The Annual Real Estate Forecast, ULI Philadelphia’s premier real estate event of the year, is now a full day of virtual programming! The event will detail the newly released Emerging Trends in Real Estate ® 2021 report from ULI and PwC, which tracks and analyzes market trends based on surveys from around the country. This year expect analysis of how asset classes and capital markets are responding to the pandemic. Join hundreds of local practitioners to discuss national and local trends, hear from industry leaders on key drivers for growth in the face of the pandemic and learn how both public and private sector partners are affected and looking ahead.
Since March 2020, COVID-19 has presented immense economic and operational challenges to the real estate and land use planning industries, while critical conversations around race in America have required both industries to reflect on their role in harmful policies that perpetuate ongoing economic and racial disparities. In response to the adversity and hardships that our communities continue to face, Philadelphia has the opportunity to rebuild and recover both our economy and communities in a more equitable way. Our speakers will discuss these topics and more and explore short and long term solutions for our region.
In accordance with local and state guidelines, the Annual Real Estate Forecast will be hosted virtually over Zoom. Attendees will have the option to purchase a full day ticket that provides access to the entire day of programming or purchase access to individual panel discussions. CRE Conversations, the small group discussions, will only be made available to those who purchase the full day package. A private lunch with speakers will be made available to Real Estate Forecast sponsors and top Annual Sponsors. Registrants will have the option available to purchase a physical copy of the Emerging Trends report when purchasing a ticket.
