About The Event

About Tango Location is Everything Summit

A year later and there is still much speculation about what ‘normal’ will be, but we know that the global pandemic has changed retail forever.

To help companies navigate the complex challenges faced by real estate and facilities executives, Tango is hosting our 2nd annual Location is Everything Summit, an industry event focused on thought leadership and topics to help any organization understand what is next for stores and restaurants. This interactive event will include keynote presentations, roundtable discussions, provider and occupier presentations, technology showcases, and more.

Sessions will explore the impacts of COVID-19 on all aspects of the real estate and facilities lifecycle, including Market Research, Real Estate, Design & Construction, Lease Admin & Accounting, and Facilities Maintenance.
