Each year, just before the Provada (Dutch Real Estate Trade Fair), HPP organises its annual real estate symposium in collaboration with the Dutch Real Estate Society (NVA). This year’s theme for the symposium, Urbanisation, was as broad in scope as it was informative. A number of highly qualified experts from the respective sectors presented their visions to a captivated audience. The plenary session was preceded by a several ‘Pro Talks’ on specific topics and issues. As the Pro Talks turned out to be a success last year, we decided to include them in this year’s program again. Many interesting topics within the theme Urbanisation were discussed. Additionally, the location of the symposium, an iconic industrial monument and former machinery hall of the Werkspoor factory, turned out to be a wonderful and exceptional location for all participants and guests. Attended by more than one hundred guests, and with a closing speech delivered by Lennert Middelkoop, the Director of City Development & Economy Utrecht, the symposium once again proved to be very successful, refreshing and valuable for those visiting the Provada in the weeks after.
