New mobility: a game changer in real estate?

“Location, location, location”, is the classic real estate motto. But will today’s top locations still be top locations tomorrow? After all, the ‘new mobility’ is changing our movement patterns and the way people travel from point A to B has always had a major impact on area development.

Car traffic and public transport are supplemented with smart and practical mobility solutions such as car sharing, electric bicycles, scooters, …

Innovative apps help travellers select the optimum combination of different modes of transport. And this is just the beginning of what amounts to a transport revolution. How long before we travel in autonomous driving vehicles? 

Will this new mobility revolution change that classic rule by replacing location with mobility? How should project developers adapt to such a new reality?

The results of Realty’s mobility impact study are discussed in a debate with regional political authorities. This study is carried out under the supervision of Alexander D’Hooghe, urbanist and professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He is also the government-appointed intendant for the implementation of the Antwerp Ring Cover design.

Cancellation of Realty Belgium edition of 17 & 18 September in Knokke

The 12th edition of Realty Belgium – the biggest Belgian real estate summit that was to be held on 17 and 18 September this year at the Knokke-Heist casino and Albertstrand – will not take place in 2020.

The Realty event's organiser Easyfairs Belgium has decided to cancel this years's edition due to the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID-19 virus and amid growing uncertainty about whether the summit could take place in September. Last week the aldermen's college of Knokke-Heist decided that all major events planned until 31 August are to be cancelled. At the end of May, it will be decided what will happen to events to be held from September onwards, such as Realty Belgium.

Because there is uncertainty about whether or not Realty can go ahead, the partner exhibitors are unable to make a final decision on their participation and no tickets can be sold to real estate professionals just yet.

The international real estate fair Mipim, wich was to take place in Cannes in March, has recently also announced a two-day networking event for het sector in Paris in September. Professional real estate association UPSI-BVS, a long time Realty partner, has announced that it is cancelling all its events for 2020 as well. All these external factors have meant that Easyfairs Belgium will not be able to guarantee a first-rate, high-quality event for the Belgian real estate sector in 2020. It has therefor decided to cancel the September 2020 edition of Realty and Immo Invest Days.

Realty and Immo Invest Days would like to thank its partners and the real estate community for their understanding and their support over the last weeks.
