CBRE offices, Palladium, Nám. Republiky 1a, Prague 1 Show on map


The world is changing and society is developing. New generations, a different work-life balance, explosive technological growth and, last but not least, economically challenging times. Some companies have adapted their workplaces in reaction to these changes by implementing more innovative office concepts. And others have not. There are differences in levels of adaptation between business sectors and especially countries. What trends are we seeing in the Czech Republic? Do we have examples of companies who already implemented new ways of working? Are employees changing what they expect from their employers and the workplace? Are office occupiers requiring different functionalities from their office furniture? Are developers, landlords and serviced office providers reconsidering their business models to meet the changing demands of occupiers? Are occupier requirements for office space in the Czech Republic changing at all? The following speakers will aim to provide answers to all of these questions and much more. Presentations will be followed by a lively discussion and tour of the new CBRE offices: - CBRE - Bert Hesselink (Case study of the CBRE New Way of Working & trends in innovative office concepts abroad) - JLL - Jan Mechl (Overall market perspective on innovative office concepts in the Czech Republic and whether or not tenants are keen on implementing them now and/or in the future) - Regus - Petr Narwa (How does Regus adapt their business strategy to a changing world? What is happening abroad compared to the Czech Republic?) - Hays - Eva Mizerova (What do employees expect from their future workplace? Are their demands and expectations changing?) - AIG Lincoln - Steven Tichy (Developer’s point of view on how current trends may affect the design of office buildings) - Ian Bryan Architects - Ian Bryan (Are office occupiers’ demands and expectations with respect to interior design and functionality changing? What are the latest trends in office design? How does the Czech Republic compare to other countries?)
