Fact vs. Fiction: We’ve all read the headlines of the slow-yet-imminent retail apocalypse – declining sales, store closures, vacant malls, you name it – but what’s the real story? Learn from the experts as they share what’s really happening in different facets of this transitional period, and how it impacts all of us in the CRE industry. REFA’s Emerging Leaders are excited to invite you to this dynamic exploration by the panelists, which will include the following questions:

·   What is truly changing in retail and in retailer behavior?  What does the future look like?

·   How is a retailer planning now, and how does it impact leasing? What should owners expect?

·   How do the changes impact underwriting, capital decisions, and investment strategies?  How do they impact renovations and new development?

·   Are lenders changing underwriting and terms? What should a lender expect?

Whether an owner, a lender, a broker, or simply an online-shopper, we hope to see you there - after all, you can’t believe everything you read.

REFA Members: $80 | REFA Non-Members: $100
(Includes 2 drink tickets. Corporate Sponsor passes not eligible)

*The program will be directly followed by a networking and cocktail reception.
