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 and no tickets will be sold at the door.
  • 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.

Why this Matters?

What You'll Learn:

  • Where the market stands going into 2022 and how to capitalize on it.
  • The biggest challenges in adopting and designing to the significant change in rainfall intensities from both a regulatory and design perspective.
  • How developers are adapting to evolving Houston flood regulations.
  • What “smart development” looks like and how it can set the city up for success.
  • How Houston is moving to diversify beyond oil and gas, and the ways that the city is promoting that progress.

  • How new developments and redevelopments are adapting to new regulations.
  • What Houston’s existing talent pool looks like, and what industries are being drawn to the city to take advantage of that pool.


How You'll Do More Business: If Houston is anything, it’s resilient. Over the last year, the CRE community has struggled, adapted, and evolved.  The pandemic and a battered oil and gas industry have taken a toll on the local economy. Additionally, the CRE community is adapting to the new flood regulations and implementing them into their new developments and redevelopments. However, with every challenge comes a new opportunity. Learn the major tension points between developers and the city, and most importantly, how Houston can handle future natural disasters Hear from the top industry leaders about the prominent trends that are shaping future developments and how to prepare for a future that still poses questions. We will dive into what to expect going into a new year, the opportunities that lie in a distressed market and how to set the city up for long-term success.

Who You'll Meet: Owners, investors, architects, general contractors, engineers, developers, investors, city officials, lawyers, and community leaders.
