OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR SAFETY

We have experienced the enthusiasm of returning to live in-person events this year, having safely and successfully hosted more than 10,000 executives to date. While we are thrilled to convene together to propel growth within CRE, COVID-19 remains a worldwide concern and Bisnow is committed to practicing safe protocols at our events. You can expect the following:

 

  • In accordance with CDC guidelines, we are recommending that all participants wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be made available at the door.
  • Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.
  • Attendance at the event will be capped.
  • Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.
  • Socially distanced seating will be available in the main event space.
  • Enhanced sanitization protocols will be adhered to throughout the event space including regularly disinfecting surfaces throughout the event and hand sanitizer provided to all attendees.

 

As local regulations and guidance evolve, the CRE industry continues to lead the way forward. We look forward to gathering safely to do what we do best: network, connect, and engage to do more business. We look forward to hosting you soon.

The Great Repurpose: Redesigning the Chicago Office

What You’ll Learn:

According to Colliers International, Chicago's office market vacancy rate hit a 15-year high in the first quarter of 2021. What strategies can be utilized to repurpose vacancies into profitable ventures? 

 

The Fortune Business Insight report recently estimated that the global smart building market will reach $109 billion by 2026. What high-tech features will help attract new tenants and retain current ones? 

 

A recent Gensler’s poll conveyed that 47% of average U.S. workers prefer totally or mostly private office space, while 46% prefer totally or mostly open office environments. What innovative design features and smart amenities can be implemented to meet the needs of the Covid-19 era office workers?

 

How You’ll Do More Business: 

As the office returns to work, there is urgency to fill empty space or face continued profit loss. With remote workers calling the shots on amenities to retain and attract tenants, the design of the office asset is forced to become more creative, and high-tech responsive than ever before.

 

Learn how to repurpose vacancies into profitable ventures, pioneer renovations through leveraged partnerships into growth, and discover how to create hub-centric, multi-use, adaptive designs that will power the future.

 

Who You'll Meet: Investors, developers, lenders, architects, brokers, tenants, and engineers.

With the largest audience of commercial real estate professionals in the world, no one knows how to help your business more than us.
