JANUARY 15, 2019, ATLANTA, GA – In a sweeping, global study of the corporate real estate profession, CoreNet Global has identified the most influential trends through 2025 and beyond. FutureForward is the most recent example of CoreNet Global’s long history of accurately predicting the evolution of corporate real estate (CRE).
“It’s not farfetched that the term ‘corporate real estate’ might not exist in 2025,” said CoreNet Global Chair David Kamen, MCR.h. “We are more now about work enablement and experience and that might not come through CRE. It’s more about engagement and not about desks and chairs anymore. It’s a holistic look at the space.”
In developing FutureForward, CoreNet Global embarked on an 18-month initiative in 2017 to envision the association model of the future in four key areas (The Future of Belonging, The Future of Convening, The Future of Information & Content and The Future of Learning). Workgroups met virtually and around the world with futurists, economists, sociologists, and other subject matter experts to develop forecasts. The aim of the study is to ensure that CoreNet Global remains relevant to its members as the profession – and associations – evolve.
Among the trends identified in FutureForward:
“The built environment is affected by a number of external factors, including the environment, economy, shifting demographics, geopolitics and technological advancements that will continue to evolve for better or worse in the years ahead,” said CoreNet Global CEO Angela Cain. “CoreNet Global will remain relevant by looking ahead of the curve and providing our members with the insights they need to stay abreast of these changes as they focus on indispensability and relevancy in the year 2025 and beyond.”
