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 23,000 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.
  • 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 will gather safely to do what we do best: network, connect, and engage to do more business. We look forward to hosting you soon.

Why This Matters

What You'll Learn: 

  • What are the next steps for Houston to become a national life sciences hub, rivaling the national coastal centers and international leaders? 
  • How are emerging industries in Houston, such as nanotechnology, biodefense and stem cell research, changing the area's ecosystem?
  •  Incubators are essential to anchoring tenants to a market. What are investors doing to further invest in expanding the Greater Houston Area? 
  • How integral are educational systems, like UT, A&M, and Rice and their advanced young talent, in strengthening Houston's potential and success in the research domain?
  • What effect do major research developments like Ion Tower, Innovation Plaza, and the incredible TMC3 have on Houston's world stage potential?
  • What are some of the new and emerging technologies that will impact the industry in the years to come? 
  • How do industry leaders draw the attention of investors and tenants from the coastal hubs inland toward Texas and Houston?

 

How You'll Do More Business: Houston's reputation as a life sciences hub is growing. With current projects like Texas A&M's Innovation Plaza and the largest life sciences building in the world, TMC3, Houston is primed and ready to rival national and international leaders in life sciences. Factors like the local young talent pool and the long-term potential to achieve market maturity are attracting life sciences companies, owners and developers to the area. However, the city still lacks enough lab space to seriously compete with other well-established clusters in the U.S. While there are several projects in the pipeline, that does not address the more immediate problem of catering to startups and companies that need space right now. Join us as we address these topics and so much more at our first ever in-person life sciences event. Learn what 2022 holds for Houston's future and how market leaders are working to achieve a world-class status. 

 

Who You’ll Meet: GC's, Architects, Developers, Owners, Investors, Engineers, and Lawyers
