    The FutuRE of Workplace will discuss how valuations in the office sector have been impacted by both declining demand and the new work-from-home trend. Will flexible workspace thrive or die? And how is office fitout evolving to reflect tenant preferences in a post-pandemic world?

    This four-part series running on a quarterly basis is presented in 50-minute, at 9am HKT (GMT+8) on second Wednesday of August, November, February, and May. Simultaneous interpretation in Mandarin and Korean will be provided during the webinar.

    Boom or Bust? – Office Investment in the Age of COVID-19
    Wednesday, 12 August 2020 | 9AM HKT (GMT+8)

    (Past webinar)

    As vacancies rise and rents fall in CBDs across the region, fund managers are reassessing how to underwrite office purchases. In this webinar, a panel of prominent investors from key Asia Pacific markets discusses how prospects for the asset class are changing. Do occupiers still want conventional office space? Are cap rates moving out? Is excess liquidity still buoying the market? And, as market pressures rise, what new opportunities are now available?

    Discussion Leaders:
    Daniel Klebes, Managing Partner & Head of Japan, BentallGreenOak
    Stuart Mercier, Managing Director, Head of Asia Real Estate, Brookfield Asset Management
    Nicole Quagliata, Fund Manager, Oxford Investa Property Partners
    Benett Theseira, Managing Director, Head of Asia Pacific, PGIM Real Estate

    CBD vs. Work from Home – How Demand for Office Space is Changing
    Wednesday, 11 November 2020 | 9AM HKT (GMT+8)

    (Past webinar)

    In the brave new world of social distancing, landlords must face the reality that today’s workspaces are fundamentally different to what they were. With work-from-home an established trend, demand for CBD offices is falling, while flexible workspaces are subject to cross-currents of both rising and falling demand. But are these influences here to stay, or will they fade? We ask a panel of investors, developers, and occupiers how the dynamics of the office industry will evolve.

    Discussion Leaders:
    Dr. Henry Chin, Global Head of Investor Thought Leadership, Head of Research, APAC, CBRE
    Paul Edwards, General Manager, Strategy & Customer, Mirvac
    Paul Salnikow, Chairman and CEO, The Executive Centre
