Annual Forum 2021
Agenda

 

Session 1: Future in Focus: The U.S. Office Market - Forecasting with Virtual Work Consideration

8:15 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. ET


Speaker: Brandon Isner, Leader of Market Research & Insights, CBRE

While the increase in virtual work will impact office space utilization, it will not lead to the end of offices. However, we can expect an acceleration of the existing trend toward employees enjoying more flexibility in where and how they work, and employers determining how best to utilize office space across locations.

In this Future in Focus presentation, CBRE Econometric Advisors examines the amount of time the average office employee will spend working virtually, the impact on occupied square footage per tenant, the subsequent impact on asking rents and the timeframe and justification for an office sector recovery. The future of work is evolving.

Isner will discuss: 

  • How will office space be affected, long-term, by remote working?
  • How much space will we need?
  • When will the office market begin to recover?
