Corporate real estate professionals' organization CoreNet Global has issued a final call for proposals for this year's EMEA Summit, which takes place in London (September 17-19, 2012).
This year, the Summit adopts the theme 'RE-Imagine: Re-orient, Re-ignite, Re-invent' to explore how occupier requirements are a primary catalyst for change in today's business environment, and how corporate real estate executives must evolve their skills and go beyond the obvious to lead their organization.
For 2012, CoreNet Global has introduced a new process by which members and the wider corporate real estate community can contribute to the development of the educational program, requesting proposals for new speakers, content and learning formats, with submissions to be tendered by the May 6 deadline.
Proposals for content must be submitted in one of three tracks designed to focus on the key challenges facing Corporate Real Estate:

3. Emerging Technologies the implications of advances in technology for corporate real estate, looking at issues ranging from a multi generational workforce to building automation and carbon footprint reduction.
