PropertyEU Events: The future of the office is at stake

An expert panel of real estate leaders will discuss the future of the office this week in an exclusive, closed-door webinar hosted by PropertyEU.

In the wake of the private event, a detailed report showcasing the findings of the roundtable will be published digitally and in print across the PropertyEU platform.

The panel includes investment and development experts Ross Blair, senior managing director UK, Hines; Tomas Jurdak, head of real estate, MiddleCap; and Arkadiusz Rudzki, executive vice president leasing & sales, Skanska.

Also on the panel are office innovation experts Michael Cockburn, founder of digital office platform Desana; and Jonas Kjellberg, chairman of the board of Nornorm, a workplace service provider owned by Ikea.

As employees return to the office post-pandemic, the capital markets outlook has never been more in flux. With new expectations around working styles - including remote working and hybrid solutions - what place does the office hold for the corporations of the future?

The panel will discuss what commercial real estate has to offer in terms of creating productive business environments, from the race to add the right amenities, to making a healthy and sustainable contribution to ESG goals.

Debate will also cover changing demand dynamics, the contribution of flexible offices, and the wider role of the office in mixed-use schemes and the cityscapes of tomorrow.
