Yet, deals are still being pushed through, in certain resilient asset classes in these cities. As we move toward a post-coronavirus future, market leaders are placing their bets on the new normal. This eMeeting is a chance for the APAC real estate community to come together and discuss the challenges and opportunities for tactical M&A available and to find synergies and discover peer appetite. Where are investors looking to help them weather the current crisis, or even come out the other side stronger?

  • Multifamily & Offices - Rent and Cashburn Challenges
  • Pricing & Valuations

"It was an engaging and insightful session, gave a good perspective on the current state of not only real estate but also consumer sentiments. It was quite user friendly and I encourage more of e-meeting sessions. We learn how each organization across countries are taking measures to combat something which has been declared as an Epidemic as of last evening."
