In the ever-changing world of real estate, it is extremely important to stay up-to-date. When a client puts their property in your hands, or trusts you with finding them one that fits their every need, they are expecting the most informed decision based on the current market. The best way to stay informed is to hear what others in the field can bring to the table, and a great place to do this is at events and conferences. Whether it’s to network, stay in touch with speakers or make connections/deals, it has never hurt anyone to get a fresh perspective (even if it’s one they don’t agree with)! With all of that being said, here are some upcoming real estate events in the GTA that look interesting.

Date & Time: June 11th, 7:30am-9:30am
About: Closure of airports often presents an opportunity to redevelop large tracts of land in an urban area, as well as adjacent developments not constrained by flight path restrictions. Bombardier Inc. will be closing their property at Downsview, so there is discussion about the future of the land. What can be learnt from other airport redevelopment projects (ex. Playa Vista in Lost Angeles, Blatchford in Edmonton, Stapleton in Denver)?
