  • Sustainability - How can commercial property become sustainable and environmentally friendly? Understand how owners can upgrade properties to remain attractive and what digitally-enabled buildings with high energy efficiency look like
  • Real estate and gig economy - How is commercial real estate benefitting from the tech sector? Examine how start-ups and new technologies are impacting investment decisions in terms of location, traditional real estate and alternative asset classes

This half day event brings together agents, occupiers and investors to strengthen your understanding of the current economic outlook, latest occupier trends, growth opportunities, and risks to the commercial property sector.
