With the recent New Zealand Election taking place, where does this leave the New Zealand economy and its market outlook – both in the short and medium to long term? How will this economic outlook affect the Christchurch commercial property market and the office and industrial markets?

Join us at our Annual Market Summit to hear from esteemed speakers: Dominick Stephens, Chief Economist at Westpac and Gary Sellars, Director of Valuation & Advisory Services at Colliers International.

Dominick will provide an update on the national economy and what the current driving forces are.

Gary will provide a detailed summary of the office and industrial markets in Christchurch including reference to recent notable sales, land availability, development and recent growth. He will also update us on the Christchurch CBD rebuild in terms of construction, leasing activity, supply and demand.

Numbers are limited, please register today to reserve your place at our Annual Market Summit. Ticket price includes drinks and canapés.
