Corporate Real Estate Professionals Talking Business

Make plans to attend the special corporate-member-only session the afternoon of Wednesday, 6 June. Corporate real estate executives will convene for an exclusive Peer-to-Peer discussion. Participants talk candidly during this facilitated session about topics relative to corporate real estate management successes, challenges and strategies for adding greater value.


Workshops 1 and 2

Workshop 1 Facilities Management Procurement Models

Whether your company self-performs Facilities Management or substantially outsources this vital function, managers need to understand their range of options and the relative benefits and costs of each.


Workshop 2 AI, Machine Learning and Big Data

The revolution in lease administration – are you up to speed?

Steven Fox, Head of CRE Solutions | Qube, an MRI Software Company
James Boreham, Sales Executive | LEVERTON

The development of smart data platforms has changed the face of real estate lease administration. Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning provide far greater accuracy than traditional methods of data entry, allow for much faster processes and provide substantial increases in output. The development of these systems means that no longer does lease admin need to be a resource-sapping exercise. In fact, with a collaborative approach and the correct software in place, it can become a powerful weapon that helps provide critical business insights and empowers more intelligent decision-making. This session will examine the impact these changes are having on CRE real estate departments, giving particular focus to how they are being embraced in order to tackle the challenges posed by the new IFRS 16 requirements. 


Workshops 3 and 4

Workshop 3 Global Manufacturing Footprint Optimization

As global manufacturing companies acquire and merge with others and expand organically, they need a plan for rationalizing the function, number and locations of facilities in their portfolio. This session will discuss strategies and best practices.


Workshop 4 IFRS 16 and Its Implications for CRE Portfolios

The new IFRS 16 lease accounting standard will have important and potentially far reaching implications for corporate end-users when it takes effect in 2019. Attend this session for an update on fine tuning the company’s preparations.
