Due to concerns over Coronavirus, Connect Bay Area has been postponed to later in 2020. We are monitoring this situation on a daily basis and the health of our attendees, speakers, and sponsors is our primary concern. We will continue to update the Connect community with new developments regarding a future date.

Keynote Presentation

1:50pm - 2:40pm:

Bay Area Industry Leaders

This session will highlight the most active CRE dealmakers from the Bay Area's key submarkets, from The City to Oakland, Silicon Valley's Mid-Peninsula to San Jose. The panel will discuss what continues to push the market forward and how opportunities must be approached given the competitive market complexities and dynamics. We'll look at the top deals and dealmakers, as well as the megaprojects such as Google Village. We will uncover areas currently flying nder the radar but could be primed for take-off.

2:40pm - 3:00pm:

Networking Break

3:00pm - 3:50pm:

Financing: A Look at The Drivers, Obstacles and Opportunities Across the Bay

The Bay Area remains one of the most attractive markets from an investment perspective. Tech companies have joined financial firms and investment funds in investing large amounts of capital into commercial real estate—driving demand in areas other than traditional CBDs/financial centers. Will this trend continue, or will the tech sector lose momentum and cause investment interest to wane? Investors, capital sources, acquisitions managers and others discuss the overall climate of capital markets, and will share strategies to position investment opportunities across all sects through private equity, institutional investors and international funds.

3:50pm - 4:40pm:

Proximity Principal: Investing in and Developing Emerging Communities

Tech continues to be the Bay Area's huge driver and Google, Apple, and Facebook are the big players gobbling up space and attracting other tech innovators and unicorns to settle nearby. San Francisco limits the amount of square feet that can be developed each year so this is driving up office rents and prices, while pushing companies into other markets like San Jose and Oakland. Panelists will discuss these and other current trends and disruptors in redevelopment and new development across all asset classes. Pressing topics will include urban infill, investment activity and strategies, the recalibration of retail, the demand for life-science space, a surge of housing and mixed-use projects, transit and infrastructure demands, shifting demographics, and opportunities in the growing submarkets.

It is critical that we all take the emerging challenge presented by the Coronavirus seriously. We should remain calm and await more information to be provided by health experts. Clearly, there needs to be an awareness of the potential impact on the CRE industry from an economic perspective. We are watching the rapidly evolving situation to determine the best approach to our business and prepare plans based on information and recommendations from health officials. We ask those planning to attend conferences take the necessary precautions to help prevent the spread of the virus. We will look for ways to help educate those in the CRE industry and work with our event venue partners to create the safest environment possible. Some of the recommendations to protect yourself offered by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) include:
  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes or mouth without first washing your hands
  • Use tissue when sneezing or coughing and dispose of immediately
  • Avoid close contact with individuals showing signs of fever or persistent cough
If you don’t feel well take all of the above steps and
  • Seek the advice of your doctor and call ahead for appointments
  • Refrain from unnecessary contact with family members or pets
  • Stay home or work remotely
