Global Real Estate Experts To Share Design Strategies And Ideas Atone Of The Most Prominent Events On The International Design Calendar GUANGZHOU, Nov. 27 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- CoreNet Global is pleased to announce that it will host a symposium on "Corporate Real Estate Design for Profit and Productivity" at this year's Guangzhou Design Week scheduled to take place at the Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Centre from November 29 to December 4, 2007. The symposium, which will be held from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. on November 30 will bring together commercial property experts and thought leaders from around the globe for a day of information exchange, networking and discussions on issues pertinent to all aspects of corporate real estate (CRE) design. Co-organised by the Government of Guangzhou, the International Council of Interior Architects and Designers (ICIAD) and City Expositions Guangzhou, the forum is considered timely given the dynamic economic growth of the Pearl River Delta area and escalating demands across the region for commercial property ranging from manufacturing facilities to office space. The event will therefore not only provide audience members with a unique opportunity to learn more about a sector of crucial importance to the development of the Southern China region. More significantly, delegates will also benefit from insight into facility planning, strategy, management and methodologies, plus how best practices in corporate realty design can create value for their organizations. According to Mr. Alex Lam, CoreNet Global's Managing Director for Asia Pacific, identifying future commercial real estate design trends and creating business models to maximize return on property investments is integral to the success of Chinese companies operating in the Pearl River Delta area. Mr. Lam comments, "CoreNet Global is thus very proud to partner with the ICIAD and City Expositions Guangzhou to host an event dedicated to introducing the concept of corporate real estate design and why it is important for Chinese corporations to embrace CRE as part of their strategy for business success." The opening address for the symposium will be provided by Mr. Weiguang Guo, Vice Director of the Economic and Trade Commission of the Guangzhou Municipality who will set the scene for the one day programme by defining the economic outlook for Southern China, and the important contribution the real estate industry is likely to make towards the region's development and growth. The symposium will also feature engaging presentations from representatives of organizations including Motorola, Standard Chartered Bank, Cisco Systems, Siemens, Jones Lang LaSalle, DEGW and the International School of Beijing. In addition, subject areas to be discussed will range from 'Design Trends in Global Business,' and 'Corporate Design Standards,' to 'What Makes a Good Real Estate Investment' and 'Why Design is Important to Business Success.'
