For the fourth successive quarter, a general optimism across the global commercial property sector continues to grow.

A gradual recovery in global occupier and investor sentiment continues to improve and now stands at its best level since Q4 2019, according to the latest RICS Q2 (2021) Global Commercial Property Monitor.

With global GDP growth forecast at 5% in 2022 (CBRE, 2021), the time is now for the sector to connect and analyse new impactful trends, the city centre return, asset class performance and devising new commercial real estate strategies for 2022 and beyond.

With 15 live sessions analysing regional and global markets, investment risks and new opportunities, post-pandemic valuation essentials, sustainable buildings, net zero missions, shifting occupier demands and repurposing space, the upcoming RICS Global Commercial Property Conference 2021 welcomes international speakers to voice their expert insights and discuss how the sector can emerge from lockdown to recovery.

Join RICS’ leading annual commercial property conference and network with our high-level global community of commercial real estate professionals, from investors to developers, agents to occupiers, surveyors to valuers as we prepare for a wave of new momentum.
