Ladies and gentlemen,
with great pleasure we announce our
Seventeenth Annual International Conference on Real Estate Development,
which will be held from 9 to 11 May 2022 at the Esplanade Zagreb Hotel. As at our Live Conference last October 2021, we will absolutelly respect all epidemiological measures which will be in force at the time of the Conference.
The shortest word or two about the Conference in October 2021 - a special atmosphere… the joy of meeting, the gleam in the eyes, the spontaneous smile, the asymmetrical murmur of human voices - wonderful. Thank you to all participants for your coming!
Now, less than three months before the Conference, we are fully preparing the program of the Conference, which this time lasts three days. There is a great interest of lecturers, sponsors and partners to present and discuss many topics of real estate development at the Conference, and therefore we are extending the standard two-day program to a total of three days.
The program of the Conference, in geographical terms, will consist of three intertwined circles - international, regional and Croatian. In thematic terms, as always, these are the five already standard topics of our Conferences - offices, retail, tourism, logistics and housing. Along with this, the program consists of the topics of architecture, urbanism, landscape architecture, construction and facility & property management. The topics of green building, climate change, digitalisation, renewable energy sources, wood construction and heritage protection are also important, and are the integral part of the Conference. Of course, there will be themes on RE-triathlon - development, financing & investment - the core theme of each real estate conference.
At the Conference, we will present a number of projects from London, Paris, Vienna, Belgrade, Ljubljana and other cities, as well as other countries. By all means, we will also present a number of projects from Croatia and Zagreb - the host city where the Conference has been held for 17 years.
A particularly important topic at this Conference will be the Art of Masterplanning.
The format of the Conference program consists of:
- presentations of keynote speakers,
- panels with moderator and speakers,
- special panels by invitation only,
- dialogues between two speakers,
- RE salons,
- conversations of all Conference participants during all breaks, especially on the beautiful Oleander terrace, and
- gathering of all Conference participants at the traditional Gala Reception!
In case of nice weather, the Gala Reception on Monday, May 9, 2022 will be held on the Oleander terrace of the hotel. If epidemiological measures allow, our wish would be, and it is the wish of a number of Conference participants with whom we spoke, that the magical sounds of the Viennese waltz, inviting for dance, could be heard under the starry sky above the Oleander Terrace. Gala Receptions always have had an appropriate music program. We want to continue this tradition… why not with dance… we live in special times, but the smell of waltzes seems to be already felt in the air above the Oleander terrace …
Three days of the Conference are hard, demanding and marathonic. However, they are also challenging, useful, inspiring. In any case, we think it is an event not to be missed. We, as always, do our best to prepare a first-class program for you. And we kindly invite you to come! It is still early to announce the complete program, but you have enough time to book time now and secure your place at the Conference. Especially considering the possible limitation of the total number of Conference participants.
Yours Andrea Kiš, Andrija Filipović and Vladimir Filipović
