    The New REality 
    With every crisis comes great lessons and opportunities to improve how things have been done.
    Last year, as economies slowed down, we kept on moving. We continued to provide thought leadership, shared research findings and learnings from the various initiatives that were tried-and-tested by members of the Urban Land Institute. We came together frequently and exchanged our new experiences and crisis-management solutions to help each other be resilient as Singapore progressively re-opened the economy. 
    Join us at our annual ULI Singapore Conference where we take a look at the bigger picture and build the next step together as a community.
