In an increasingly connected world, it is important to look at the performance of commercial property markets within both a regional and global perspective.

This afternoon seminar will take a closer look at the performance of global commercial property markets so far in 2018 from an ASEAN perspective, and discuss issues that will be relevant for the remainder of the year and 2019.

Attendees will be among the first to see the results of the Q2 2018 RICS Commercial Property Monitor on the day of the report’s release.

We will host a panel discussion featuring local industry experts to contextualise issues from an ASEAN perspective. Expect a lively Q&A followed by networking and drinks with industry peers and panelists.

More panellists to be announced shortly.
