“An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away” – Wellness & Well-being in the Workplace.

Historically, employee wellness has been the purview of employers but a shift to “health through design” has led building operators and landlords to incorporate from inception, a variety of wellness initiatives including biophilic design, smart ceilings, lighting, sensors and ventilation systems that compliment the traditional wellness initiatives around exercising and healthy eating, to attract corporate tenants.

In the session, we hear from building owners, corporate real estate executives, space operators and major occupiers on what they view as the most important and effective aspects of wellness for today’s workplace.

Networking Break – ASDinnovate

Visit our exhibitors and learn something new.

“Papa was a Rolling Stone” – Designing for the Agile Workplace.

Agile workplaces and activity based work are growing trends and corporate occupiers want to partner with space operators and building owners who can design the right workplaces that will enable them to attract and retain the best talent.
The agile workplace trend is pushing building owners and space operators to rethink the way they design office buildings.

On this panel, our speakers will answer some of the following questions:

• What's the right approach when devising an agile workplace strategy?
• What are some of the cost effective ways to retrofitting an existing space to make it agile?
• What are some of the most in demand agile workplace features?
• What's the right balance of collaborative to private spaces?
• What are the pitfalls to avoid when creating an agile workplace?
• How should real estate developers approach designing an agile workplace on spec?

“Anything You Do I Can Do Better” – The Real Estate Owners Perspective on Flexible Office Space.

In a decade, WeWork went from leasing 1 space in Soho to today operating over 46 million sqft globally at a valuation of $47 Billion and IPO to boot. WeWork’s growth is in large part due to building owners not foreseeing how dramatic of shift there was in the needs of tenants.

As a result, real estate developers are now coming up with various strategies to partake in the upside of the flexible office trend.

Some of the strategies include:

• Launching their own coworking/flexible space brand
• Joint venturing with operators (management agreements)
• Having some component of flexible office in their portfolio
• Avoiding co-working tenants all together.

In this session we hear from various real estate development and management firms on their approach to leasing up space in today’s dynamic and flexible office market.

ASDinnovate Lunch Break

Enjoy Lunch, Network & Visit some exhibitors

“Fancy You Ask” – Amenitization of the Workplace.

One the biggest challenges for today's office developer and space operator is the ever growing need for unique amenities in the workplace. From hidden rooms, to babysitting, farm to desk dining, steam rooms, roof decks, art galleries, on-site healthcare and the list goes on and on.

A lot of building owners are taking their cues from the hospitality space and are transforming their office buildings into more than just a place to work.

What are some of the lessons learned from the hospitality space and what are the most innovative landlords and flexible space providers doing to standout in the marketplace and continue to attract major occupiers?

“Go Go Gadget” – Tech Tools for the Modern Space Operator

The modern space operator needs to make data driven decisions about the utilization of their space. One of the most effective ways for workplace strategist’s to control real estate costs while simultaneously boosting employee morale is through the proper use of space.

Some of the tools used to improve space data accuracy and reduce costs include IoT sensors, predictive analytics, cognitive technology, utilization tracking and space management software to name a few.

On this panel, our speakers share insights on the most important tech tools in their arsenal to control costs and improve space utilization within their workplaces and why it matters.
