12:30-13:00 Registration & Networking
13:00-13:05 Welcome Address – Cary Zheng (Senior Director, Savills Commercial Shanghai)

13:05-13:15 Keynote 1 2017 Office market outlook - James Macdonald (Director, Savills Research China)
Shanghai’s office market is experiencing growing pains as record levels of new supply enter the market and new business districts emerge. Where is demand coming from? Will it be significant enough to absorb these new buildings? How is everything going to play out over the next three to five years?

13:15-13:45 Keynote 2 Opportunity of designing green workspaces, promoting enterprise image & enhancing employees care – Christina Lu (Property Manager, Savills Property and Asset Management Services Shanghai)
With the supply of all new buildings in the rental market, the needs of advanced, green and flexible workspace should be taken into consideration, which will not only promote the enterprise image but also enhance employees care.

13:45-14:00 Keynote 3 Reasonable leasing strategy to reduce different enterprise risks – Cary Zheng (Senior Director, Savills Commercial Shanghai)
Workspace reform would mean that traditional offices might be out of date, which could pose a big challenge to the proprietors. It is a proper time for enterprises to have more opportunities to grasp market periodic trends by the timely adjustments in location selection & negotiation.

14:00-14:10 Keynote 4 Staff expectation management will be the key of office relocation – Troy Tan (Associate Director, Savills Project Management Services Shanghai)
At the moment, air pollution and indoor air quality is the big concern of all staff especially for new office space. What’s the resource of the odor? How to reduce the odor? As the project leader, we need to understand first. Then we can deliver the correct information to staff.
