09:10 - 10:00

Permanent rearrangement or a slow return to the status quo? – What is in store for the property market?

Was the past year and a half just a bad dream, or has it brought damages, changes and structural transformation from which there is no way back? Sustainability and the survival of the planet have again come to focus after COVID. Certain categories are still struggling spectacularly with uncertainty, while green funds are increasingly finding their ways to suitable assets. What should we leave behind for good, and what are the new focal points in the property market?

Moderator: Dr. Szilárd Kui, Local Partner, DLA Piper

Coffee break and networking


BLUE Section II.

10:30 - 11:10

"Greenhorn" financing – The weak pun hides billions in available financing, but what are investors looking for?

One year ago, a green bond issue was sufficient to win "Property market innovation of the year" at the Portfolio Property Awards, but Hungarian property firms have issued more than HUF 100 billion in green bonds since then, and green mortgage debentures, the Green Home Programme and green loans are only about to launch. There have been huge changes in the financing market, which will have a substantial impact on projects and investments alike.

Moderator: Gergely Fábián, ügyvezető igazgató, Magyar Nemzeti Bank

Conversation participants:

  • Dr. Edina Schweizer, Partner - Head of CEE Banking and Finance, Noerr

11:10 - 11:50

Macroeconomic outlook

Inflation, supercycle, green funds, perpetual risks. Just a few of the factors that could have a serious effect on the property market in Hungary and abroad on the macroeconomic side. How will these factors reinforce or cancel each other? What economic processes have the biggest impact on domestic projects and investments?

Moderator: Zoltán Bán, CEO, Net Média Zrt. (Portfolio Csoport)

Conversation participants:

11:50 - 12:40

Conservatively flexible – What should the office segment, with its 4 million square metres on offer, prepare for?

Will we forgo our personal space and crowd around shared desks? Will HR or finance call the shots? Do businesses know what they need at all? How can old properties compete with new ones? What kind of changes and flexibility will tenants require, or already do? Will the vacancy rate rise further, putting pressure on rents? Will the segment split to soaring and tanking sub-markets? What awaits the biggest asset category in Hungary?

Moderator: Balázs Simonyi MRICS, közgazdász, ingatlanpiaci szakértő.

Green Section I.

Moderator: Márton Orosz, tartalomfejlesztési igazgató, Portfolio Csoport

09:30 - 10:15

New ones are coming! - Several hundred thousand square metres of new office space to strain the market in coming years

The "home office v. quarantine office" dilemma is one of the most burning issues for all players in the office market. While existing office buildings are trying to remain competitive along technical, employee well-being and sustainability requirements, greenfield projects have to be attractive to tenants and investors alike amidst rising construction prices, changing tenant requirements (such as infinite flexibility) and tighter regulations.

Moderator: Valter Kalaus MRICS, ügyvezető partner, VLK Cresa

Conversation participants:

10:15 - 10:30

10:30 - 11:20

Is Hungary's property market vulnerable or stable? - Regional overview and comparison

The property markets of individual countries are affected by a number of external factors, so it is not evident that they are doing equally well in a small region like CEE. What are the strong and weak points of Hungary's property market compared to other countries in the region? How successfully have we weathered the COVID crisis? What will be the best development and investment opportunities in the coming period?

Moderator: Dr. Dániel Ódor MRICS, Partner, Taylor Wessing

  • Aurelia Luca, EVP Operations Hungary and Romania, Skanska Commercial Development Europe
  • Rudolf Riedl MRICS, Managing Director, SÜBA Hungary

  • Hannes Wimmer, Managing Director, Loan Capital Markets, Erste Group Bank AG

11:20 - 12:20

Sustainability presentations - Hear what the present has to say and save the future!

We have to work to achieve sustainability, all of us in our own fields. The good example will catch on, but is also helps if tight regulations and even increasingly strong financial interests support our deeper and more aware commitment to going green. These targeted presentations  will help in getting closer to the solutions of the present. No time to talk, we must act!

Moderator: Zsombor Barta MRICS, Greenbors Consulting Kft. alapító partner, HuGBC (Magyar Környezettudatos Építés Egyesülete), elnök

11:20 - 11:35

Sustainable and predictable real estate development? Start at the foundation!

Based on the experiences of the recent period, professional project preparation has become even more important in the construction industry, which is able to guarantee predictable and risk-free construction even in times full of uncertainty. What kind of solutions are used for this already in deep foundation? 

Speaker: Attila Szepesházi, Head of Technical Department, HBM Soletanche Bachy

13:50 - 14:05

Presentation - Construction industry

Speaker: Dr. Csilla Rázsóné Szórády, vezérigazgató, újHÁZ Centrum

14:05 - 14:45

Material costs unchained! – What will happen to projects?

There is no more burning issue at present than the soaring construction material prices, which have a huge impact on the property market, and the government's attempts to rein in prices. But what good will it do? Can prices be pushed down and supply problems alleviated? Or does it all depend on global trends? Can commodities that have become expensive be cheap once again? Will there also be flexibility downwards? What does the construction industry have in store for the property market?

Moderator: Gábor Kiss, Managing Director, Metrodom Kivitelező Kft., IFK, Vice-chairman

Conversation participants:

14:45 - 14:55

Speaker: Péter Reicher..

14:55 - 15:35

What is equity looking for? – Challenges for investors and increasingly green expectations

Investment strategies in the post-COVID, pre-climate disaster market. This is an incredibly uncertain period  for investors, as they have to invest the funds coming in into profitable, high-yield assets amidst huge risks and uncertainty. While ESG, green bonds and green investment funds are soaring, they still need to find suitable properties. The fight for green has started as the race for high and safe returns continues. Are there good alternative solutions or will core assets prevail?

Moderator: Bálint Botos CFA, Managing Partner, Forestay RE Fund Management


15:35 - 15:55

Coffee break and networking


Green Section II.

13:40 - 14:25

Housing market: Spectacular and justified pressure

From now on, gardens and kitchen tiles will not be the only green things in homes! But how much can customers take? While regulations are tightening, construction costs are rising, and the loan moratorium and the period of government grants and incentives are ending, green housing loans are about to launch. Will there be a sequel? What factors will shape the housing market in Hungary? Is there any chance to be institutionalised?

Moderator: Gergely Nagy, Budapesti Régió - ügyvezető igazgató-helyettes, OTP Csoport

Conversation participants:

14:25 - 14:40

Smart cities, smart buildings

Speaker: Andor Gál, Business Solutions Manager, Telenor Hungary Zrt.

14:40 - 15:20

Hotel market: Leisure vs. business – Resurrection for one, coma for the other?

What awaits the hotel market? Will a merciless wave of purging sweep across the segment once the moratorium expires? Will there also be winners, or only losers? Why are hundreds of hotel rooms still being built to this day? The hotel industry is the primary victim of the pandemic, but what do market players expect?

Retail: Shopping vs. buying

Logistics: The segment that just laid back during the pandemic and ordered another coffee. Or did it?

New entrants, incumbents switching gears, regional competition, changing rules, huge demand, changing requirements and enormous interest from the Far East characterise the market of logistics and industrial properties. Is it sufficient to lay back and harvest the fruit as it ripens, or does long-term success require hard work and preparations in the present?
