    Plenary panel discussion - Examining the New NORMAL and what it means for office demand, designand the role of technology as we push to revitalise CBDs

    Covid has caused massive disruption to CBDs and Commercial Real Estate. Once thriving cities, full of office buildings housing employees have been forced into lockdown with significant economic impact. What is not known is how permanent this impact will be with many companies advocating for a push back to pre-covid workplace arrangements, and others adopting hybrid working policies. In this session we gather leading industry professionals to talk about the past, present and the future of office space such as: 

    • Has the role of the office changed forever and what are the implications of hybrid work on city CBDs and the national economy?  
    • What role are tenants playing in defining the new office landscape? 
    • What can landlords do to enhance their design, safety, air quality, wellbeing and more to attract and retain tenants? 
    • Examining the role technology plays in making office spaces clean, healthy, attractive and more sustainable. 
    • Looking at retail from a commercial building perspective; how can we support retailers in order for them to support the tenants of the buildings they occupy? 
    • What does all of this mean for office landlords, investors and agencies and how can they work together to enhance and revitalise the CBD? 
    Panellists include:
    Ninotschka Titchkosky Commissioner, Commission into the Future of Sydney CBD & Co-CEO, BVN
