2014: Why Winnipeg Continues to Outperform Most Other Canadian Cities
The Winnipeg Real Estate Forum will provide valuable insights on the trends and opportunities in the city located in the centre of the country.
Chaired by David Asper, Executive Chairman of Creswin Properties, the conference will be held on Tuesday, April 29 in the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
In 2012, the 2nd biennial Forum was sold out with an attendance of over 560 executives – 30% of whom were from outside of Manitoba. For 2014, the event has been moved to larger space.
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, low unemployment rate, and a cushion against any major fluctuations due to downturns in the economy.
The Forum will examine the current strength of the Winnipeg economy and its real estate market, and how it is performing from both a leasing, development and investment perspective.
The program 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 other professionals active in the acquisition, leasing, financing, management, and marketing of commercial and multi-unit residential real estate.
The Winnipeg Real Estate Forum will help you determine what strategies to follow for the remainder of 2014 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.
