COVID-19 has forced a radical shift in working habits. In demand offices in centralised locations that once teemed with activity are now only at 50% occupancy. How long will this last? Will the office ever be the same again? What does this mean for office landlords, tenants, fund managers, designers and cities? What opportunities does this create for flexible working and flex space?

The Future of Office Space Summit will explore what the new normal will look like for commercial property post COVID-19, and will take a deep dive into many of the big questions, including:

• What will the pandemic mean for the commercial office market in Australasia?
• Will the role of the workplace change and how?
• What will workplace changes mean for commercial property companies and tenants?
• What will individuals want and need from their place of work?
• The role of workplace design and innovation in enabling employees to return to work safely
• Optimising office space – Repurposing office space to meet changing tenant needs
• Reviewing tenant policy, strategy and leasing arrangements
• The role of technology in managing challenges associated with the risk of contagion
• Leveraging digital technologies within office space to attract tenants and enhance their experience

Who Should Attend?

• The Future of Office Space Summit has been designed for senior executives involved in the commercial office space sector, including:
• Building owners/REITs
• Tenants
• Brokers/Agencies
• Fund Managers
• Property Managers
• Architects/Workplace Designers
• Consultants
