Global corporate real estate association, CoreNet Global, today announced that its 7th Annual Asia Summit will be held March 24-26, 2009 at the Venetian Macao.
Organizers of the event confirmed that the theme for the 2009 CoreNet Global Summit will focus on the "future of the physical workplace," and include an exploration of what the workplace of the future will look like, where it will be located, and how it will function.
"Building on ideas touched upon at previous CoreNet Global events, the 2009 Summit will explore cutting edge innovations and new ways of creating the next generation of work places," remarked CoreNet Global Asia Chair, Mr. Nigel Harris.
"In doing so, the Summit programme will examine the implications and growth in popularity of trends such as portable architectures, teleconferencing and collaboration spaces on overall workplace design and management," continued Mr. Harris.
"We will also be reviewing the dynamic business forces, market conditions and other industry developments likely to contribute to shaping the commercial workplace in the years to come."
According to Mr. Harris, this is the first time that Macau has been selected as the host location for a CoreNet Global regional summit, but he comments that the decision was timely given the enclave's booming commercial property market driven by the dynamic growth of its tourism, gaming and hospitality industry.
He expresses, "Macau's robust economy continues to grow at a phenomenal rate and this is both fuelling demand and creating lucrative opportunities for the commercial property sector."
Additionally, Mr. Harris notes that the 2009 Summit follows a successful CoreNet Global conference held in Mumbai earlier this year, which attended by over 400 people from around the world, showcased the experiences and best practices of corporate real estate professionals in the industry.
"Subsequently, our summits are designed to encourage intensive sharing of insight and knowledge by providing multiple opportunities for networking between international, regional and local participants.
"For 2009, we therefore intend to, once again, bring together corporate real estate professionals with diverse, international experiences, to both discuss and debate the challenges and opportunities faced by the industry," concluded Mr. Harris.
