New opportunities to be exploited or time to play it safe?

11th February 2020
Cosmopolitan Hotel

Investment Outlook

Projections and expectations for 2020 across CEE and Czechia. Offices are the strongest asset class, but is there something new coming up to take over? Can the secondary cities finally get in step with the "elite competition"? Construction costs are high that force developers to hold on the plot and wait for the next cycle. Is that sustainable?

Our first club meeting in the region will give answers to some of these questions and concerns, through an open, engaging discussion between the GRI members and invited guests.

14:45 | Registration and welcome coffee
15:30 | GRI Style Discussion

What makes CEE GRI different is that you have the opportunity to interact with your peers and decision markers. It’s informal, the discussions are not structured, so they often go in different directions.

Noah Steinberg
Chairman & CEOWING
Wing’s Chairman & CEO, and shareholder. Has worked in CEE since 1990, and held the position of Wing’s Chairman & CEO since the company’s establishment in 1999. During this time he was tasked with the establishment of Wing, management of the company’s integrated investment and development activity, its office, retail, industrial, hotel and residential projects and services portfolio as well as its international expansion in Poland via its stake in ECHO Investment where he is Chairman of the Supervisory Board. Graduated from Princeton University (Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University – BA) and the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna – MA). Speaks English, Hungarian, French, German and Spanish.
What I like about CEE GRI, is that you are in a room with peers, and they are not trying to sell anything, and they are not trying to promote their companies. What they are genuinely interested in is your opinion and getting the groups opinion.

Much like a conversation in your own living room, the dynamic environment allows you to engage with your peers in an informal and collegial setting.
