RE Chatter Summary Replays
The first instalment of our RE Chatter virtual series will kick off with "The Future of Office," which has been a hot topic of discussion both within and outside of the real estate industry.
While pandemic-related disruption to office occupiers in Asia Pacific is diminishing, the outlook remains uncertain. Increasingly, long-term real estate strategy planning is being shaped by trends such as greater flexibility and the adoption of new working models.
What can asset owners do to prepare for the future of the office? Is hybrid working here to stay? How does creating a positive employee and client experience build a competitive advantage? How can investors, fund managers and landlords hedge against the new normal?
Join us as we discuss these timely questions at the inaugural RE Chatter by CBRE session. The virtual event will start with a short overview presented by CBRE Research, followed by a 30-minute fireside chat with our partners and a question and answer segment.
With Asia Pacific home to approximately 60% of the global population, growing demand for pharmaceuticals from this large and ageing population, coupled with supportive government policies, a steady flow of M&A activity and the expansion of R&D capacity, are fueling occupier demand for life sciences real estate in the region.
The life sciences industry’s role at the forefront of combatting the COVID-19 pandemic has also generated substantial requirements for real estate to test, produce and store vaccines, medicines and related products, adding to already significant demand.
As these significant macro trends converge, CBRE is tracking an increasing interest from investors eyeing this exciting and dynamic asset class.
Join us as we delve deeper into the key trends shaping the life sciences sector in Asia Pacific, as well as their implications for the future, at our RE Chatter by CBRE webinar. The virtual event will start with a brief overview presented by CBRE Research, followed by an interactive 30-minute fireside discussion with our partners and a Q&A segment.
