HEALTHCARE’S CHANGING IMPACT ON REAL ESTATE

The healthcare system is facing an onslaught of challenges and rapid changes as it adapts to the rules and regulations of the Affordable Healthcare Act, new requirements for Medicare and Medicaid, and unsure stability in the economy. These conditions have created a world of uncertainty for medical care providers, changing their demand for real estate. Join CBRE healthcare real estate expert Craig Beam and industry leaders for an in-depth look at trends that are transforming the ways healthcare companies use real estate.

WORKPLACE EDGE

The workplace today is being radically reconsidered to meet the needs of a changing workforce and more demanding business environment. Organizations are abandoning one-size-fits-all solutions in favor of more tailored solutions that reflect their culture and enable their employees to be more productive and engaged. Georgia Collins, a global leader in CBRE’s Workplace Strategy team, will discuss what is on the leading edge through a tour of compelling workplace experiences around the world. This will culminate in a discussion with Lew Horne, around CBRE’s new flagship office in Downtown Los Angeles.

OMNICHANNEL RETAIL AND THE FUTURE OF BRICK AND MORTAR STORES

The chime of the cash register is fading—replaced by the click of a mouse—as more consumers are turning to the Internet for online shopping. The death of brick and mortar stores has been predicted for years, but they are still alive. New omnichannel strategies are saving them from extinction, according to Forrester Principal Analyst Sucharita Mulpuru, who will describe how physical stores can survive and thrive with a successful omnichannel strategy that meets shoppers’ expectations for convenience, price and value.

EVOLUTION OF BROKERAGE

You’ve come a long way from pounding the pavement and making in-person cold calls, to touring the market using your iPad. Technology made this possible. It has changed a great deal about our business and will continue to shape our future. Yet, best-in-class brokerage is still largely based on developing and nurturing client relationships and delivering innovative solutions that create value for our clients. Take a tour back in time as we explore the progression of the real estate industry with Global President of Transaction Services Jack Durburg, who will facilitate a lively dialog between Vice Chairman Darla Longo, a 30-year brokerage veteran, and Executive Vice President Ben Friedland, a thought leader in the use of technology, about what has really changed in our business, what hasn’t and what the future has in store for us.

DRIVING VALUE THROUGHOUT THE SUPPLY CHAIN
