Corporate Real Estate Executives Predict Future of the Workplace in 2020

ATLANTA, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CoreNet Global, the world's leading professional association for corporate real estate and workplace executives, is hosting its Global Summit in San Diego, California, April 29May 1 at the San Diego Convention Center. This year's event, which marks the association's 10th anniversary, will draw nearly 2,000 top corporate real estate (CRE) decision-makers, focusing on the theme, "Re-Imagine: Re-ignite, Re-orient, Re-invent." 

As part of the Global Summit, CoreNet Global will release a set of predictions about the future of work and the workplace complied through Corporate Real Estate 2020. The transformational research initiative is a forward-thinking comprehensive study involving more than 200 senior executives from leading multinational companies in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.

Last year, CoreNet Global launched Corporate Real Estate 2020 to bring the future into sharp focus. The complete Corporate Real Estate 2020 report will be available in June including a full set of "bold statements" or predictions about the future of corporate and commercial real estate.

CoreNet Global Summits assemble a forum of the leading thinkers and strategists in corporate real estate from around the world, and feature a series of educational and networking opportunities. Discussions and break out sessions will focus on how CRE and workplace executives can reinvent and reignite their people, places and processes to maximize their efficiency and do more with less.

Summit headliners include:

  • John Kao, aka "Mr. Creativity" and "The Innovation Sherpa," who will offer a five-point perspective titled, "Reimaging for Results" about how to grow, transform and sharpen your competitive edge through innovation
  • Kevin Carroll, founder of Kevin Carroll Katalyst, LLC, who will explore play-for-performance strategies in his session titled, "Reimagine Recess."

Formerly known as the CoreNet Global Expo, this year's REIMAGINATION will introduce attendees to a high-impact education and high-powered networking with professional peers, CRE service providers and economic developers. Four central quadrants in the learning quarters will provide the stage for more than 40 timely and topical presentations and discussions on: Leadership Issues; Manufacturing, Industrial and Supply Chain Challenges; Corporate Real Estate 2020 Key Findings; and Technology Issues.
