ULI is Here to Support You: Responding to COVID-19

(This page was updated on 22 April. The original statement can be found at the bottom of this page).

We hope that you are keeping well in these challenging times. The COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to have a devastating effect globally and has caused major disruption for everyday life including restricting the ability for people to travel. 

We would like to update you on what this means for ULI activities across Europe as well as to highlight some of the resources that are available to ULI members.

Update on ULI Events

The health and safety of our members and staff continue to be ULI’s highest priority and therefore, we have extended the postponement of all ULI events in Europe until after 30 June 2020. We will be writing separately to all registrants of ULI events that will be affected by this decision. We will continue to monitor the situation and decide accordingly on events planned later in the year.

ULI’s Digital Programme

To give our members the opportunity to stay connected, learn and share experiences, ULI has initiated a wide range of online programming for professionals in the real estate development industry. Through a series of webinars, you can access lessons learned and best practices from ULI members and other industry leaders around the globe.

We have created a ULI Europe Digital Programme, including weekly Wednesday webinars. This is proving to be a popular programme, with more than 500 people registering for our first webinar on 8 April. 

Knowledge Finder

For over 80 years, ULI members have helped each other through numerous economic cycles by sharing best practices, new ideas, and lessons learned. Members have exclusive access to a wide array of experience and content through Knowledge Finder, where our webinars are available to watch “on demand” and our insightful research reports, such as the recently published Reshaping Retail, can be downloaded.

COVID-19: Industry insights

We understand the importance of leveraging the global ULI network in these uncertain times and have collated ULI resources on the digital version of Urban Land, which look at addressing the impact of the current pandemic. Take a look at the COVID-19: Industry Insights page now for a roundup of available ULI resources.

Original Statement: 11 March 2020

ULI Europe, like many organisations, has been monitoring the ongoing impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The impact of the virus is increasing rapidly and, in many places, significantly disrupting normal life. Therefore, as the health and safety of our members and staff is ULI’s highest priority, we have decided to cancel or postpone all ULI events in Europe that are due to take place between Monday 16 March and Thursday 30 April 2020.

At the same time, we continue to monitor the situation closely and, if needed, will take further action on events planned after 1 May, in due course. We will send out regular communications over the coming period to keep you informed about ULI’s activities. 

We will be writing separately to all registrants of ULI events that will be affected by this decision and our staff team is closely collaborating with our leadership across Europe to develop new alternatives for the member community through our digital platform and we are committed to continuing to provide our members with a valuable member experience.

We appreciate your understanding as this has not been an easy decision to make. 

If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact europemeetings@uli.org or our customer service team on +442074879570.
