Our annual conference with the Real Estate Center will look at how the remarkable expansion of the “sharing economy”, propelled by powerhouses such as Airbnb, Lyft, Uber and Zipcar, is rapidly changing the contours of urban planning and property development. Such sophisticated online platforms are enhancing mobility and property utilization while providing enormous savings to consumers. Many consider the resulting disruptions to be “game changers” for real estate development and economic development. Join us to evaluate what the sharing economy means for the real estate community through a discussion and Q&A with an expert panel.
