Encore of solid performance for latest MEREDA Index

03/01/2016

The latest MEREDA Index, unveiled in late January 2016 at MEREDA's Forecast Conference, comes in at 100, signifying solid performance for the last two quarters. As a key economic indicator for Maine, the MEREDA Index measures the pulse of the state's real estate industry. It is the leading way the Maine commercial real estate industry tracks changes in the market.

Today, rapid changes to work styles, expectations of younger generations, and accelerating technological advances are disrupting conventional notions of the office. Workers as abandoning the cubicle, first introduced 50 years ago, for "the new office," which requires less square footage than a decade ago, demands more open, flexible, and adaptable environments, and pays dividends on the bottom line. MEREDA is pleased to welcome two nationally renowned architects for a discussion about this tipping point, with real world examples of how place and technology work together to improve employee engagement, performance, and well-being. The conversation will be augmented by a panel of executives from three Maine companies that have embraced the tremendous business opportunity that comes with providing choice to today's enlightened worker. Attendees will learn how to put these ideas into action, deal with resistance to change, and measure the benefits of this new way of working. Additionally, attendees will learn about the reverberations for commercial real estate, the spaces we build, own, and lease and how the Maine market is changing as a result.

MEREDA will also recognize the Top Notable Projects for 2015 and will unveil the newest "MEREDA Index" number.  This metric measures the pulse of the state’s commercial real estate industry, including sale and lease activity, construction starts and other data, aggregated into one figure as an indicator of this important sector of Maine’s economy.

Join us on May 17th from 1 PM to 5 PM at the Holiday Inn By the bay for what is sure to be an eye-opening and informational event!
