But the sector is facing a challenge: to assess, devise and implement effective strategies for assets grappling with changing occupier needs and sustainability requirements.

Join us as we explore the dynamic landscape of the workplace, analysing its evolving role in the economy and the opportunities it presents for investors, developers, occupiers and more.

A delegate ticket includes access to all sessions, refreshments and networking, including a drinks reception. Delegates will also receive a copy of Bruce Daisley’s latest book, Fortitude.
