    Networking Session

    The year 2022 has brought us war in Ukraine, robust inflation and unsettled global markets. Japan welcomed a new cabinet and a had a respected former leader assassinated despite the country's peaceful record. What will all this change and uncertainty mean for the Japanese real estate market and society in 2023? How will economic, energy, and security policies change? What are tenants looking for in real estate as their targets shift towards the super-wealthy in segments such as membership clubs, international schools, senior housing, etc.? Why are known and new PE players focused on Japan?

    Join us as we look for the answers to these questions at the ULI Japan Fall Conference.
