Event Details

As Shanghai office rents continue their decline for now eight-consecutive quarters, coupled with softer demand and significant new supply on the horizon, occupiers are starting to abandon the wait-and-see attitudes and take active measures to reduce OPEX and increase efficiency. For Landlords, there are reasons for optimism due to the occupier’s willingness to pay for a solution-oriented office-providing partner. 

Join us for an event delving into the evolving landscape of Shanghai’s office market! Our industry speakers will share dynamics on:

  • Unique financial opportunities & flexible terms for occupiers
  • Differentiation opportunities & tenant mix upgrades for landlords
