Data Revolution: 5G Wireless and Impacts on Real Estate

Tuesday, December 15, 2020 @ 5:00pm - 6:15pm


Data and mobile communications are growing in importance as more of our personal and business lives move online. With the rollout of game-changing 5G wireless technology, astute real estate professionals understand the critical impact on tenant needs and building competitiveness. In a sign of things to come, a large real estate company recently purchased their own broadband spectrum for a major Northern Virginia development.

Learn about 5G wireless technology from a non-technical perspective and understand the implications for real estate investment and development. Our speaker, Len Forkas, has a rare combination of expertise in both the real estate and wireless industries.
