Seen as one of the most important trends of the 21st century, the sharing economy has made its impact in just about every aspect of our lives. From co-working to co-living, car-sharing to maker spaces, ownership, management, and use of shared resources are not what they once were. Whether considered from a business, user, or public perspective, the real estate ramifications are often difficult to grasp. This program will explore the various real estate challenges and opportunities we face in the sharing economy by hearing from some of the industry leaders who are taking on this complex, evolving set of services and products.
