Find Out Why Winnipeg Continues to Outperform Most Other Canadian Cities

The 4th biennial Winnipeg Real Estate Forum will provide up-to-date and valuable insights on the trends and opportunities in the city located in the centre of the country.

Chaired by Arni Thorsteinson, President, Shelter Canadian Properties Limited, the conference will be held on Tuesday, May 17 in the RBC Convention Centre.

In 2014, the Forum was sold out with a record attendance of over 620 executives – 30% of whom were from outside of Manitoba.

Why is there so much interest in Winnipeg?  The city has one of the most diverse economies of any major community in Canada that includes aerospace, finance and insurance, transportation, agribusiness, information technology, furniture and apparel industries.

The result is an economic base that has a stable workforce and a cushion against any major fluctuations due to downturns in the economy.  Winnipeg’s unemployment rate has been steady at 5.8% for over a year – well below the national average and in the top 25% of Canadian cities.

The Forum will offer a wide range of speakers, presentations and panel discussions on the economic drivers responsible for Winnipeg’s strong GDP; the major trends in the office, industrial, retail and apartment markets; the available and cost of capital; and the broad range of development activity and opportunities.

The conference will offer value to asset managers, brokers, developers, investors, and others active in the acquisition, leasing, financing, management, and marketing of office, industrial, retail and multi-unit residential real estate.

The Winnipeg Real Estate Forum will help you determine what strategies to follow for the remainder of 2016 and beyond.

Note that the registration fee is significantly lower than other comparable events and will fit virtually every organization’s or individual’s budget.

We hope you will take advantage of this informative event.
