Join us for an insightful panel discussion on Cities 3.0: What does it mean? When is it coming? What roles and responsibilities does commercial real estate (CRE) have in shaping the city of the future, rather than just reacting to it?
We’ll begin with an overview provided by Rosemary Feenan, urbanization expert and EVP Global Research for QuadReal. Through interactive audience participation that involves collecting real-time responses through smartphones, she will provide perspective on the opportunities for cities like Toronto to participate in the next phase of city-building.
Rosemary will be joined by expert panelists Dr. Pamela Robinson, Director of Ryerson University’s School of Urban and Regional Planning and member of the Digital Advisory Board for Waterfront Toronto; and Edward Lewis, Accenture’s Industry X.0 Canadian Innovation Strategy lead and Smart Cities expert.
Our panelists will introduce us to the concept of the 3rd Generation of City Planning and Development including the impact on CRE, the new tools and technologies in play, and what this all means for CREW members in Toronto and globally.
Join this lively and informative discussion and share food, drink, and conversation with fellow CREW members and guests!
