9:45 – 10:00 COFFEE TALKS
TOPIC COMMON TO ALL CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS – RESIDENTIAL ROOM:
10:00 – 11:00 The green added value – the circular economy, building adaptations, ESG.
(presentation of report findings and discussion panel)
Let’s talk about the environmental factors that will build added value in the commercial and residential real estate market in the years to come. The context of ESG and carbon footprint reduction is strongly influencing investment valuations and investor sentiment. Adaptations, refurbishments and revitalisations of (not necessarily old) buildings that fulfil the requirements of EU strategic programmes are also gaining in importance. So what to look out for in the coming years?
- How will the closed loop economy revolutionise the construction industry?
- Building adaptations and the context of ESG and EU regulations (Fit for 55, Renovation Wave, Circular Economy Action Plan).
- Will renovations and adaptations become more profitable due to higher environmental costs?
- How to build the competences needed for the green transformation today?

DISCUSSIONS AND LECTURES IN THE COMMERCIAL ROOM:
11:00 – 11:10 Tabelaofert.pl – technology in the service of sales.
We invite you to a presentation where we will demonstrate the practical application of Tabelaofert.pl in the sale of apartments and houses - as a proven and effective tool for Sales Department employees of real estate developers.
Radosław Pokluda, head of IT department at tabelaofert.pl
11:10 – 11:30 The planning reform in a nutshell – the current state of work and what it means for the development sector.
New regulations for the issuing of zoning decisions, municipality master development plans, an integrated investment plan, an urban planning register – these are the new features expected to be included in an amendment to the Spatial Planning and Development Act which is in the pipeline for 2023. This could be a real “Copernican revolution” in the way the development industry operates. What changes do we need to prepare for even now?

11:30 – 11:40 Competition Monitoring in the residential development market.
Competition Monitoring in the residential development market is an excellent tool enabling the monitoring of both the current and future competitors in the area adjacent to an investment or an investment area. This type of spot analysis makes it possible to create a sales and marketing strategy tailored to the needs of the local market. With this, you can accurately determine and compare the price, structure of flats and the interest in your investment with the popularity of those in the immediate vicinity.

11:40–12:20 Mixed-use – the future of the industry or a minor trend?
Mixed-use projects are taking the Polish real estate market by storm. Browary Warszawskie, Fabryka Norbina, Monopolis and Fuzja in Łódź or Garnizon in the Tri-City seem to be instant hits at first glance. They are full of people, become trendy – and arouse emotions..
- Is it reasonable to develop such projects even when the legal status of the plot does not require it?
- Is the mix of housing with food outlets, offices, retail and entertainment the future of the real estate market?
- Is this the end of single-use behemoths and will we see more such developments?
- Who are the residents of mixed-use developments? Ownership vs. tenancy. The standard of housing.

12:20 – 12:40 BRUNCH
12:40 – 13:25 Resuscitating the mortgage market – will the patient be stabilised?
Buyers who rely on mortgages are the group that developers are missing the most. As a result of interest rate increases, orders issued by the KNF and a spike in housing rental rates, young people who are at the threshold of their professional careers have almost completely dropped out of the housing market and got stuck in their family homes for good. Fortunately, their difficult situation has come to the attention of the governing camp. Are the measures taken actually improving their position, or are these just preparations for next year’s elections?
- What impact has the announcement of government-subsidised preferential loans already had on the housing market and what impact will it have when the scheme actually comes into effect? Will it shorten the path to owning a home?
- Will the government’s scheme first run out of money or applicants for cheaper loans?
- The housing account, or why have long-term housing savings schemes always flopped in our country?
- The government’s „First Home” programme – will our taxes be soundly invested?

13:35 – 14:35 Is it already the bottom? Question marks over the future of the Polish residential market
2022 went down in the history of the Polish real estate market as a shock therapy. As a result of the credit squeeze, developers saw their sales plunge by an average of 50 percent, while inflation and the energy crisis triggered by the war across our eastern border effectively restricted the opportunities for launching new projects. Currently, our market is still “running on the fumes” of projects started in 2020-22, but how long can it continue?
- Poland’s slowing economy and the future of the domestic residential market.
- What’s next for investment demand? Will individual investors remain an important group of home buyers?
- What will be the real impact of migrants from Ukraine on our market in the coming years?

14:35 – 15:15 Real estate cyber security. Is there anything to worry about?
Office buildings, shopping centres and housing estates increasingly have their own applications. They feature IoT solutions, while offices and homes can be accessed via smartphone. We can also book specific desks through such applications. The same goes for parking lots. The digitalisation of properties is making them more convenient and user-friendly. But a question arises: are all these solutions safe?
- Are property-specific applications safe?
- What threats await managers and tenants in fully digitised buildings?
- How to secure an office building, a parking lot or a flat against a possible cyberattack?
