Five countries, eight cities, 38 advanced, next generation commercial real estate projects...in 12 days! In 12 short days, seven industry professionals will tour the most advanced best practices in the commercial real estate industry in Asia. Not only will they get the opportunity to see some potentially advanced concepts in action, they will also be able to use these practices as a benchmark for comparison when looking at how the industry is conducting and using commercial real estate in the United States.
The idea for this trip started in June 2002 at Realcomm in Las Vegas. In several sessions on the topic of advanced practices in building operations and management, speakers whose companies had international experience kept referencing best practices in other countries. When asked whether these countries were more open to the idea of paperless, digital operations, management, and transactions, their answers were flat out "yes."
