Jones Lang LaSalle to Participate at ULI Conference in Paris


London, 1st February 2010 – Jones Lang LaSalle will have a strong presence at the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) annual Europe conference to be held in Paris on 8 and 9 February 2011.  Commenting on the firm’s involvement at the conference, Shelley Frost, director Corporate Solutions at Jones Lang LaSalle, said: “Now in its 15th year, ULI Europe will play host to prominent keynote speakers and deliver fresh perspectives on the economy for the property, investment and financial communities.  A great deal has happened since last year’s conference.  Although economic indicators still point to growth, there is still a great deal of uncertainty and a high aversion to risk.”
 
Shelley will join a ‘Dragons Den-style’ judging panel and select one European city from a choice of ten when they pitch against each other as the best business location for a major corporate’s venture.
 
Franz Jenowein, Sustainability Consulting director at Jones Lang LaSalle will examine retrofitting to save money. Driven by continued tenant demand for green space, landlords are not only able to provide certified offices that fit the sustainability agenda of corporates. Savings derived from improved energy performance deliver value to their bottom line and provide attractive returns to building owners. Franz will highlight the key features of a successful green retrofit based on the landmark example of the Empire State Building.
 
Rosemary Feenan, Global Research Programmes Director who will be sitting on the judge’s panel for the Young Leaders Forum on Future Cities, said:  “Understanding cities is one of the most important yet complex research issues facing our market, it’s great to see ULI challenging our young leaders on issues of city success and competitiveness.”  Rosemary is also moderating the session - Around the World in 60 Minutes - “We have a fascinating panel who will be providing some deep and potentially surprising insights about the future direction of the global property market,” she added.
