11:20 AM - 12:30 PM | Panel: From Urbanization to Proptech Advancements, What’s Influencing Tenant Preference Across All Sectors?

In numerous surveys predicting the 2020 real estate trends, tenant experience was rated as a top priority for investors, developers, and brokers. This is largely due to a highly competitive market and changes in tenant preferences being driven by urbanization, globalization, changing workforce demands, and technology advancements. While many of the advancements are on the front end through smart buildings, personalization, and amenities, the back end advancements are giving executives the ability to better leverage data and improve operational efficiency. This session will review the trends taking place in tenant preferences and how leading commercial real estate companies are rising to the challenge.
