As Europe approaches the 50% threshold of double vaccination, employees are returning to work, tourists are travelling again and Italy has just won the European Championship in front of 60,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium. Even if the positive trend continues, it’s clear that nothing will be like it was before the COVID-19 pandemic. People have changed so many of their habits: remote (or now flexible) working and online shopping will never disappear and the desire for an apartment with a balcony or a study will permanently change the way we live. If we add the changes that will be driven by SESG, a picture emerges that is dominated by uncertainty like never before.
What does this all mean for the real estate industry? What role will real estate investments play in the asset allocation policy of institutional and private capital? Which asset classes are the winners, which asset classes will struggle? And is there room for opportunistic investment? Is it time to take advantage of distressed situations? Internationally and in Italy, what will the new normal look like?
After a break in 2020 due to COVID-19, DLA Piper has decided to resume the Quo Vadis Italy conference, albeit in a different format to reflect social distancing rules.
In collaboration with:
Conference 4pm – 6:30pm CET
Reception 6:30pm – 8:30pm CET
