Leading figures from every corner of the commercial property gathered in London last week to discuss the issues affecting the industry heading into 2018.
The RICS Commercial Property Conference is renowned for providing a particular level of insight and this year was no different, with topics ranging from the changing face of industrial warehouses to the impact of better environments on office staff.
One of the early highlights of the day was the CEO Forum, where the impact of Brexit on the market was a key focus. Andrew Hynard of Howard de Walden Estates described a “let’s just get on with it” mentality, adding: “We’ve had lettings which just would not have gone through six months ago.”
Later, Elaine Rossall of Cushman and Wakefield discussed the future of the office market, suggesting higher rates are inevitable as occupants look for increased specifications. And she said flexible workspaces are “here to stay”, as an evolution of the sector.
Over 200 people were in attendance and 361 Degrees was proud to sponsor the event through our new building services division, 361 Consulting, with support from Mitsubishi Electric.
