With real estate investors refocusing and reallocating capital into their domestic markets, CEE countries like Poland and Czeck Republic that rely heavily on foreign investments from Western Europe and Asia might need to rethink their regional transaction strategies. However, despite first signs of distress in the markets, the e-commerce boom might push CEE into the forefront of European investments in the long time favoured location for light industrial and logistics. Could this benefit the other sectors positively and how will recovery timelines behave?

Will pricing adapt to a new post-COVID reality and what would that mean for core, opportunistic and development pipelines? Will the CEE keep rising as a darling for Asian capital or will the money go elsewhere?

Now in its 16th year, participants find the discovery process for sourcing deal flow is most advantageous by welcoming the CEE’s most senior concentration of  Private Equity Investors, Fund Managers,  LP’s Developers, Asset Owners, Operators and Lenders invested across all CEE regions and asset classes. They will engage in a series of informal roundtables where everyone can participate, and navigate the current challenges presented by demand, purchasing and future trends.
