THE CHALLENGES OF CHANGE – THE ITALIAN REAL ESTATE MARKET BETWEEN PRESSURE FOR INNOVATION AND POLITICAL UNCERTAINTIES

Le sfide del cambiamento – il mercato immobiliare italiano tra la spinta all’innovazione e incertezze politiche.

The Italian real estate market – just like the markets in the rest of Europe and globally – is going through a period of significant uncertainties. Politics has never been as unpredictable as these days whether in Italy, Europe or in the US. In addition to political uncertainties, we are facing work and lifestyle changes caused by digitalization, demographic shifts, flexible or remote work and the expectation of a different work-life balance. While innovation offers new opportunities, it raises the challenge of keeping pace and making the most reasonable choices in a world whose complexity is increasing every day. Real estate is not immune to all this and needs to adapt more than ever to a changing society. The fourth edition of “Quo Vadis Italia?” will focus on the challenges of change for the Italian real estate industry from the perspective of investors, asset managers, developers and occupiers. 35 leading international and national decision makers will discuss in 7 different panels the implications of political uncertainty and innovation on real estate investments.

Il mercato immobiliare italiano, proprio come i mercati nel resto d’Europa e nel mondo, sta attraversando un periodo di incertezze significative. La politica non è mai stata così imprevedibile come in questi giorni, sia in Italia, che in Europa e negli Stati Uniti. Oltre alle incertezze politiche, stiamo affrontando un cambiamento nel lavoro e nello stile di vita causato dalla digitalizzazione, dai cambiamenti demografici, dal lavoro flessibile o remoto e dall’aspettativa di un diverso equilibrio tra lavoro e vita privata. Mentre l’innovazione offre nuove opportunità, si prospetta la sfida tra mantenere il passo e operare le scelte più ragionevoli nel mondo di oggi le cui complessità sono in evidente crescita. Il settore immobiliare non è immune a tutto questo e ha bisogno di adattarsi più che mai ai mutamenti della società. La quarta edizione di Quo Vadis Italia si concentrerà sulle sfide del cambiamento per l’industria immobiliare italiana dalla prospettiva di investitori, asset manager, sviluppatori e utilizzatori. 35 decision maker internazionali e nazionali in 7 panel offriranno il loro punto di vista sugli investimenti immobiliari tra le implicazioni dell’incertezza politica e lo sfruttamento dell’innovazione.
