The summit that connects fast-growing workplace executives
and forward-thinking commercial landlords

The way in which we work is changing at a rapid pace. As technologies and employee behaviors evolve, tenants and landlords need to come together in order to create an environment that allows tenant’s workforce to thrive. While tenants have been at the forefront of change, office building owners are not standing idly by. Forward-thinking landlords are seeing today’s employees want to work and are offering tenants spaces that not only provide them with a competitive advantage but a physical environment that breeds collaboration and ingenuity.

• Can Change Be Good? How Implementing a Change Management Process can greatly improve your workplace strategy
• Your Greatest Asset: Workplace strategies that bring the most out of your employees?
• “I” in Team: What about the next generation of office workers?
• One Size Does Not Fit All: Re-envisioning Office Design
• Under One Roof: The costs and benefits of work from anywhere vs. having everyone at the office

Gone are the days of offices with just computers, fax machines, and break rooms. Employees now want all the bells and whistles. As the pressure to attract and retain talent intensifies, companies are turning to amenities and high-end services in their workspaces more than ever to make their offices more attractive to today’s high-demand employees.The importance implementing the right amenity strategy is something that not just tenants need to look at but landlords as well.

• How to make your office space your greatest amenity?
• Mind, Body & Work: What health & wellness incentives do employees want?
• Office Anywhere: Flexible workspaces dos and don’ts
• White Glove Service: What concierge service do employees love?
• Climate Control: How to win the battle of HVAC complaints?
• Right to Light: What office designs create happier workforces?

As technology merges the worlds of social interaction and work productivity together, it has become imperative that tenants and landlords stay up to date on what systems will bring the most efficiency out of their buildings and workforce. With the rise of smart buildings and the internet-of-things, technology and real estate are currently going through a renaissance. But as employees want more flexibility and access to key systems how do you balance collaboration with privacy and security?

• Bring Them Together: Technology that breeds collaboration
• Collective Intelligence: How the Internet-of-Things is tapping into a higher plane of social interaction and productivity between colleagues
• Avoiding 1984: Balancing technology and privacy
• One with the Space: How technology can improve a flexible office?

Creating a people-centric workplace is not easy. When you are dealing with thousands of employees, multiple business silos, varying work styles and millions of square feet of workspace the task can seem almost impossible. However, companies see the importance of investing in their greatest asset and are developing innovative strategies and change managements process that will allow them to implement the right office design on a large scale. What techniques, technologies and design formats are tenants and forward-thinking owners using to overcome their biggest challenges?

• The Ultimate Loyalty Program Creating workplaces that celebrate brand and culture
• How to find the right balance between collaboration and privacy
• Checking In: Success and failures of “hoteling” in the office
• The Numbers Don’t Lie: How data analytics tools will help tenants determine current and future office real estate needs more precisely
• Their Opinion Matters: How employee feedback matters to any future office design strategy?

Owners and tenants recognize that existing buildings represent a considerable resource and are a desirable place for companies to do business. Smart offices aren’t limited to new builds anymore. Even brick and beam buildings are getting better with the use of apps from start-ups and tech companies that are occupying their space.

• How can construction keep pace with technology and the rapid changes in how people work?
• Having a Digital Masterplan: How to plan your building around technology and not the other way around?
• Keeping up with Hudson Yards: How can old properties compete vs. newly constructed office space?
• The three key areas every owner should focus on when upgrading their property

Mingle and network with decision makers from hundreds of companies, representing fast growing office tenants, creative landlords, leading edge architects, well-connected brokers and more.

As the evolution of work habits change at an incredible pace, Is it more cost effective to off site than to constantly upgrade infrastructure? Unrealistic lease terms, the shorter duration of which an employee stays at a job and technology disruptions are just of the factors that are leading companies to look harder at the coworking option. However is coworking a good thing in itself or simply a rational response to negative changes in traditional workplaces.

• A Working Utopia: What innovations do Coworking spaces need to offer as work habits evolve
• From the Landlord’s Perspective: The Value of Having in Coworking Your Building as an Amenity
