The ULI Young Leaders are holding the first ULI Belgium Young Leaders Forum on Wednesday 17 October 2018 in Brussels. The event will bring together top speakers from the cities of Copenhagen (Henning Larsen), Brussels (Citydev, Up4North), Charleroi (CATCH), as well as young professionals from across the real estate and urban development industry.
The forum will address inspiring plans for revitalizing cities. Urban renewal, redevelopment, revitalization projects and ambitious economic recovery plans are crucial to the success of a city as it stimulates the economy, enhances property values, instils a sense of civic pride, and helps current businesses and attracts new ones.
