RE: VISITED – The Great Office Occupier/Developer Debate follow-on series brings together some of the key themes from our 2021 debates, alongside reflections of the past year and how the real estate industry is evolving to meet the new challenges around the issues of sustainability, lease flexibility and wellbeing.
