    Voice of the tenant panel - Looking at how tenant demands across Asia are driving landlords to adopt innovative approaches to the design and fit out of their offices

    One way to attract or to keep wavering tenants secure is by investment into the buildings themselves. Tenants want greater amenities and end of trip facilities, as well as building connectivity that increases organisational culture, productivity as well as promoting staff well-be
    ing and environmental sustainability and overall air quality. These areas and more will be discussed in this intimate panel discussion led by one of the region’s leading experts in Occupier Services and his tenants.

    • What are the views of tenants across APAC and what lessons can be applied for tenants in Australia?
    • Examining what trends and themes are driving Best Practice from an APAC perspective?

    How is office space being reimagined for a new era of work

    In the past three decades, a series of quiet revolutions in design have changed the way offices are used, erasing former hierarchies of walls and cubicles and incorporating workplace methodologies from the technology industry into team-based, open-plan layouts. At the same time, digital tools such as e-mail, Excel, Google Docs, video conferencing, virtual whiteboarding, and chat channels like Slack have made a worker’s presence in those offices less essential. The pandemic has collapsed these divergent trends into an existential question: What’s an office for? Is it a place for newbies to learn from experienced colleagues? A way for bosses to oversee shirkers? A platform for collaboration? A source of friends and social life? A respite from the family? A reason to leave the house? It turns out that work, which is what the office was supposed to be for, is possible to do from somewhere else. 

    In this presentation, we’ll hear how forward-thinking companies are figuring out how to balance what appears to be a lasting shift toward remote work with the value of the physical workplace.

    Meet the managers - Capital markets and investor perspectives on Commercial Real Estate

    The future for office commercial space looks increasingly uncertain, as more and more people work from home and some employers consider making it a permanent arrangement. This could significantly affect office real estate investment trusts, or REITs, at least in the short to medium term, according to analysts. However, some are still somewhat positive on the longer-term outlook. 

    Back by popular demand, we invite some of Australia’s leading commercial fund managers to lift the bonnet and crystal ball gaze into the trends of commercial real estate from the viewpoint of investors and the capital markets.  

    • Examining the short, medium and long term prospects for office space. What are the current occupancy rates, impacts on leases, price per sqm and yields etc? 
    • What are the view of REITS and fund managers regarding office investment returns? Is there evidence of a flight to quality in the office market and a longer term structural shift to certain types of office assets, and what sort of assets are in demand? 
    • Assessing if the ‘risk adverse’ money is moving away from office and into other sectors such as industrial & logistics as investors seek safer, more ‘risk adjusted’ returns? 
    • Reviewing what lenders are doing and thinking in the face of the WFH-driven uncertainty? Also, what can landlords do to influence the outcome of the WFH versus in-office contest? Lastly, what has happened to LVRs and underwriting? 
    • Examining how are office landlords are adjusting to climate change pressures? Building operations are a major source of emissions and as capital allocators look for sustainable investments, does the property industry have any choice but to de-carbonize?

    Plenary Panel Discussion - Examining the New NORMAL and what it means for office demand, design and 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?
