SAN FRANCISCO-Shifting Bay Area sports stadiums are under a spotlight here these days. Just this month, the San Francisco 49ers announced tentative plans to build its new football stadium 40 miles away in Santa Clara–prompting the city to withdraw its bid for the 2016 Olympics–and the Oakland A’s announced plans for a new baseball stadium 20 miles away in Fremont.

With a timely keynote address, the RealShare Conference Series is making its first stop in San Francisco at the end of the month. Set for Nov. 30 at the Argent Hotel, one of the half-day event’s two featured speakers is Larry Baer, COO of the San Francisco Giants. The Giants’ six-year-old stadium was not only built in San Francisco, it was the first privately financed stadium since 1962. The Giants are now starting phase two of their master plan, which aims to transform the surrounding area into an everyday entertainment destination.

The event also will feature Michael Corvarrubias, the chairman and CEO of San Francisco-based TMG Partners, which has been involved in some of this year’s largest Bay Area real estate transactions. In a session called “Inside the Real Estate Mind,” Corvarrubias, who is known to speak his mind, will be interviewed by Real Estate Media’s group publisher Michael Desiato about real estate, business and life in general. Corvarrubias will be asked to reflect on his beginnings in commercial real estate as a lender, discuss TMG’s growth strategy and near-term development plans, and talk frankly about the market as he sees it today and where he believes it’s headed next.

Produced by Real Estate Media, publishers of GlobeSt.com, Real Estate Forum and Real Estate Southern California, the event also will include panel sessions that will cover a range of topics currently of import to the Bay Area commercial real estate market. In addition to a Town Hall Meeting-style discussion on the state of the market, the event will include sessions on the biotech and life sciences industries, the local apartment and condominium markets, debt and equity capital markets, the investment sales market and the TIC industry.

“No other market in the country is as interesting and full of news as the Bay Area, and that sheer volume of interesting news and trends coupled with a first-class commercial real estate community should make the inaugural RealShare San Francisco/Bay Area a tremendous event,” says Richard Kelley, director of the RealShare Conference Series. “Markets around the country have quickly come to appreciate and value the information and networking that RealShare events offer, all within a half-day framework that gets them back to the office by 1:30 p.m., and we are sure the Bay Area will be no different.”

The day will start at 8:15 a.m. with opening remarks from Desiato. After Baer’s keynote address over breakfast, there will be a Pardon-the-Interruption-style discussion followed by three concurrent sessions titled “Who’s Buying, Who’s Selling and Why?”, “Has the Multifamily Market Peaked?” and “How to Finance and Get Deals Done in a Heated Market.”

The sessions will be followed by Corvarrubias and then another round of concurrent sessions titled “The Demand for Life-Science and Biotech Real Estate,” “The Do’s and Dont’s of Tenant in Common Investing” and “Silicon Valley, the Tech Job Market and the Impact on San Francisco Real Estate.” RealShare San Francisco will wrap-up with a luncheon networking event that concludes shortly before 2 p.m.
