This is what the property sector lives and breathes. One-to-one talksSPEAKERS
Economic growth slowdown; a crisis in the European Union and Brexit; political instability; trade wars; the low interest rate environment; the growing debt… A decade has passed since the last global economic crisis: What is the property market afraid of today? Has the lesson been learned and is the sector ready for a rainy day? What are the main risk factors? Which sectors of the market are already saturated and in which of them the greatest potential is still lying dormant? What has the year among developed economies brought to Poland?

#10yearschallenge. A decade in the modern office space market in Poland. Where are we going to be in the next ten years?MORE SPEAKERS
Polish warehouses are a market hit. Price, the availability of assets, the liquidity of transactions, the activity of tenants, the marketing of Poland… What are the major challenges for the sector? How have they been changing?
No, but it faces more challenges than twenty years ago. Retail is at a crossroads, but there is no single appropriate direction for its development.

What projects do Polish cities need in an era when time has become a new currency, the quality of life is now a measure of affluence, and buildings merely frame the image of a city, for its essence lies in public space?
The modernist model of an ideal city, with each zone performing a specific function, is becoming obsolete.

What do Warsaw authorities expect and what do they offer? What are the plans of developers?

absolute must-haves and what has become a major challenge?
They have the potential and human resources, but they lack, for instance, prestigious locations and high-quality education. Although medium-sized towns and the largest regional office markets in Poland are light years apart, the distance may shorten in the near future. How should smaller urban centres be supported in attracting new investment projects from the modern business services sector? In terms of accompanying infrastructure like cinemas, theatres or parks, can they compete with the largest centres? The role of the government’s Factory Programme.
Poland’s property market is an attractive target for foreign investment; however, the real challenge is to stimulate domestic investors. To what extent is the lack of an Act on REITs a significant stumbling block to the development of the sector in Poland? What shape should it take?
