SAN DIEGO—Services like Airbnb, wework and Uber fill a need that traditional industries don’t, but that doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from each other, said speakers at the panel session “Real Disruption—The Sharing Economy and Commercial Real Estate” during SIOR’s Spring Conference here April 14. Each panelist was a pioneer in his respective commercial real estate niche, discovering an unmet need and creating a sharing-economy company that meets it.
