Arizona’s commercial real estate industry has never been hotter, which has many people asking, “How long can it last”? and “How can I cash in on the hot market? Those questions and more will be answered at the AZRE Forum.

AZRE magazine will host the annual AZRE Forum on Aug. 5, 2021, bringing together Arizona’s top commercial real estate experts for a mid-year update and forecast. 

The 2021 AZRE Forum will be held on Aug. 5 at The Clayton House in Scottsdale and will feature in-depth discussions of the the industrial, office, retail, multifamily, and land sectors; the short-term and long-term impact of COVID-19 on the commercial real estate industry; and what we can expect in the coming months and years from Arizona’s real estate sector.
