2024 is primed to be a critical year for life science real estate as the life sciences, healthcare and tech industries anticipate continued growth despite forecasts indicating a deceleration in economic investment in 2024.

As we exit the years of pandemic-driven investments and subsequent inflation, all eyes are turned to see if life science real estate will maintain its strong investment performance, and to understand which economic factors will open the door to new opportunities for life science financing, development, and expansion.

Join New York Metro Builds Bio+ for an important year in review and 2024 Life Science Economic Outlook discussing:

  • The 2024 national economic outlook and how it will impact life sciences at the national, regional and local levels
  • The key factors behind life science supply and demand as we exit the pandemic-era 
  • City and State priorities to build upon and expand New York’s life science and biotech footprint

This event promises an evening of meaningful conversations, networking, and reflections on the milestones of 2023 and what’s ahead for 2024.
