Overdue recovery in city travel and risks of overtourism

with Dave Goodger and Kieran Ferran | Online | September 16, 2022

The start of the recovery in international travel has benefitted a wide range of city destinations in 2022 which typically saw sharper falls in demand during the pandemic. In this webinar we will share the latest trends and our expectations for travel to key destinations identified in our Global City Travel (GCT) database for coming years, including the timing for full recovery to pre-pandemic levels, the latest city rankings and comparison against some notable non-city destinations.

Webinar
Global uncertainties and the outlook for cities in Asia Pacific, Europe and North America

with Richard Holt and Scott McEwan | Online | July 19, 2022

2022 is proving to be yet another highly unpredictable year—but also one with large variations by global region and hence across different cities. Some are seeing strong tourism recoveries while others are struggling to emerge from lockdown. Some face manufacturing supply problems, while others are experiencing tech booms. Inflation is a major issue for many, but not all. In this webinar we will explore and explain the differences, and discuss how quickly, if at all, city economies will return to normal.

Near-term real estate performance and long term risk

with Christopher Babatope and Mark Unsworth | Online | July 15, 2022

In an environment where cyclical risks are rising, structural risks continue to remain important. Rising geopolitical uncertainty, weakening growth prospects and quickening rate hikes have led us to revise our near-term real estate outlook, while the long-term risks stemming from the climate transition are also ever-present. We examine near-term real estate performance and long-term obsolescence risk in this webinar.

Where real estate investors should look for shelter from high inflation

with Christopher Babatope and Mark Unsworth | Online | May 4, 2022

With US headline inflation hitting its highest level since December 1981 in April and the Federal Reserve entering a front-loaded tightening cycle, there is plenty for real estate investors to consider. At the national level we still expect 2022 returns to be above historical averages but the picture among sectors and cities is mixed. We examine where investors can find the best shelter from the impact of higher inflation across the US and how real estate compares to other asset classes.

Which world cities will see the strongest employment growth to 2026, and why?

with Richard Holt and Anthony Light | Online | April 19, 2022

Following the recent publication of our latest forecasts for the world’s leading cities, and against a background of huge short-term uncertainty for the global economy, this webinar will stand back, and offer a medium-term (to 2026) view of job prospects in major cities. Have the pandemic, the inflation surge and supply shortages, and now the Russian invasion of Ukraine, changed everything? Or will cities in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific gradually return to their pre-pandemic trajectories? Which cities will be the winners, and which are the ones that are most likely to struggle?

Seeds sown for Australian apartment recovery

Online | October 27, 2021

The outlook for the apartment sector has brightened over 2021. The latest data points suggest the sector has passed the trough. The return of investors, the reopening of the international border and an affordability-based shift toward apartments in some cities will underpin unit prices outpacing houses over the coming years. A strong pipeline of institutional programs, the impending completion of major new public transport links across Australia’s major cities, and an emergent build-to-rent sector further cement this rosy outlook.

Online | July 14, 2021

Asia Pacific and many of its cities are doing much to help lead the global recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Where will the spending be concentrated? And on what? Where will the new office jobs be? Will more of the region’s big cities come to challenge the likes of New York, London and Paris? And are there any cities and regions to watch?
