15:00 – 15:40Evolving office leases: Demands and flexibility

Office leases are undergoing a transformation as tenants prioritise flexibility and seek spaces with enhanced ESG credentials. Businesses are seeking to boost their value and corporate image by opting for high-quality office space, prompting questions about how the leasing landscape is being navigated:
· What deviations are occurring from the conventional institutional model?
· What innovative leasing models are necessary to attract and retain businesses in this changing environment?
· Is there a need for compromise from both sides during lease negotiations?

15:40 – 16:10UK’s best workspaces: The power of experiences

The UK’s office market has changed beyond recognition. Experience, connectivity and community are becoming critical factors when it comes to choosing a workspace. In this interactive discussion we will look at some of the properties that made it on to the EG Power Properties list, which launched earlier this year in partnership with HqO to recognise the top buildings, offices and amenity spaces that provide occupiers and their employees with the best experiences through innovative, engaging and productive spaces to work in. How does the list redefine the way physical spaces are built, experienced and evaluated? What more can commercial real estate learn about the power of experience and how does this drive leasing velocity, tenant retention and more?
16:10 – 16:50Office obsolescence equals opportunity

When it comes to meeting requirements for hybrid working and efficiency/ESG objectives, some office assets have lagged. As the competitive landscape of offices evolves, it raises the following questions:
· What can be done with outdated offices?
· What alternatives exist for class B and C properties?
· Is there potential for repurposing these assets to transform areas into vibrant communities where people can work, live and play?
