Foremost Thinking Players & Analysts

It’s becoming clearer by the day that the global economy is undergoing rapid and permanent change as the impact of technological advances have infiltrated not just how we live our lives, but how businesses are run and the products they offer. New forms of investment are taking hold, as traditional banks scramble to maintain their position by copying or buying out dynamic start-ups with revolutionary ideas. Crytpocurrencies and crowd funding have risen beyond the level of mere oddities into serious alternatives. The impact of these changes are having a rapidly spreading impact on the property sector.

CEDEM 2018 will provide a mix of old and new, exploring how the digitization of real estate is being incorporated by the existing property industry and helping put these issues into context. The traditional issues of supply, demand and location are still of prime importance, but offering alternatives to old investment patterns and the appetite for new, disruptive ideas can no longer be ignored. All of this is going on as the era of low-interest and plentiful labor comes to an end and Europeans ask themselves how much longer the economic boom can continue. This year’s discussions and presentations will feature the foremost players and analysts on offer from the Czech Republic and from around Europe.

Redeveloping malls as the 'Big Rethink' transforms retail

With virtually no big malls left to build in Central Europe, the glory days of retail development are over. But there’s an entire generation of aging malls and high street locations in desperate need of updating to make them viable for a brave new era of digitized brick & mortar retail.

2Big2Ignore: How crowdfunding, co-working and start-up culture are disrupting real estate's status quo

One of the suprising profound legacies of the financial crisis has been a profound re-thinking about traditional ways of working and investing. Not only has the Millennial generation gotten a taste for flexible work arrangements and variable office space, but they’re using social networking technology to become more entreprenurial. Digital platforms are making it possible to use the power of the crowd to fund start-ups, and even classic real estate deals. This panel will explore the exciting ways these trends are having a major impact on Old School real estate in CEE.

Local power: CEE investment groups are seizing control of the investment market

The emergence of a new class of local investors, driven by the growing wealth of Central Europeans, means the old days of Western European institutional funds dominating the property markets are gone forever. But what the traditional investors lose in market share, they gain in greater liquidity for their CEE holdings. This panel will explore how these new investors have managed their breakthrough during the boom, how their strategies and approach to risk differs, and how they’re likely to perform when times get tougher.

Late-cycle investment in CEE: Investors & Funds take a hard look at fundamentals

Too much money. Lack of product. Pressure to spend. We’ve heard this story before, but much has changed in the world of real estate investment since the crisis that began a decade ago. Investors, developers and banks learned many lessons from those times, leading to less agressive financing and more selective yield compression. But will it be enough? Surely we’re nearer the end of the cycle than we are the beginning. Has the CEE region matured enough in the last ten years to withstand the inevitable tougher times, whenever they return? What’s the smart money doing?

Logistics locked in a technological arms race

The new technologies we keep hearing about are coming fast, and they’re all converging in logistics and the industrial property sector. Warehouses and trucks may sound old fashioned, but getting goods from A to B is about to get safer, more efficient and sustainable through the use of decentralized global Blockchain supply chains, Big Data, IOT, Big Data, and self-driving vehicles. The companies that react the quickest, and the cleverest, will have a massive advantage. But can anyone catch Amazon? And from a property perspective, what (if any) is the impact of this revolution on the value of industrial real estate?

Smart Cities vs. Old-School Urban Planning

The opening of CAMP, a public space designed to make Prague’s urban planning process more accessible to the public, marks the beginning of a new era of increased transparency and dialogue. Sophisticated developers are finding better ways to communicate their plans to the public and to public bodies. But the city’s permitting process remains rooted in stagnation and frustration. Could passage of the Metropolitan Plan improve this situation and are there realistic ways to enable investors to break free from stranglehold of bureaucracy?
