Through a combination of lectures, prepared market analyses and moderated panel discussions, delegates gain critical insight into current trends affecting this complex sector. Key topics this year will include rental market conditions, bank financing, investment-grade developments and the requirements of institutional investors and private equity.

The speakers chosen for CEDER are known business leaders from the top companies active in the property sector. Great care is taken each year to assemble a team of speakers who will captivate the delegates, and whose pedigrees and experience are varied enough to ensure a healthy mix of considered viewpoints. Attendees at CEDER are similarly diverse, coming from Austria, Czech Republic, Holland, Hungary, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Romania and the USA. Participants tend to be professionals in senior management positions at banks, developers, investment funds, private equity firms, real estate brokerages, government offices, contractors and other service providers.

One of the attractions of CEDER is the stunning urban backdrop, as the event takes place each year in the very heart of Bucharest, just moments away from the city’s beautiful Old Town. The Palace of Parliament, Liberty Park and the city’s many other historic gems are all within walking distance, as are a wide variety of high streets, retail passages and shopping zones. Meanwhile, Bucharest’s rich nightlife beckons for all those who have a free evening scheduled.

Held in the heart of Bucharest, the CEDER Gala Party is one of the key networking opportunities of the year for both locally and internationally-based professionals. Complete with food, entertainment and drinks, the CEDER Gala Party provides an enjoyable, professional atmosphere for doing business and socializing.

Investment: Bucharest's unanswered liquidity question

The quality of new Romanian developments has been transformed since the financial crisis, mirroring the extraordinary deepening of the country’s economy which has been flooded by corporate and industrial investment. What remains unclear is the ultimate depth of its real estate investor base. Will Bucharest’s investment market come up short this cycle, or is there still time for international investors to recognize its strong fundamentals with a rush of liquidity?

Industrial development: Maximizing value while minimizing environmental impact

Land and construction prices have been rising quickly, putting increasing pressure on developers to maximize the efficiency of their developments. At the same time, tenants want the most flexible conditions possible and the least possible environmental impact. Are they being realistic? Can developers still afford to accommodate this cocktail of competing forces and requirements and still create investment-grade real estate?
