IFMA and RICS Join Workplace Week London 2019

Industry & Regulatory News, Events, Workspace Management, EMEA

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) UK Chapter and RICS are joining forces with annual workplace festival in support of BBC Children in Need, Workplace Week London, to discuss the impact of co-working on the wider workplace market.


Flexible and co-working offices will account for 10% of the UK property market by 2027, according to Cushman & Wakefield. Co-working is celebrated for its design chic, excellent services, and user-centric environments that boost the social aspect of work. The model is increasingly popular with businesses because it offers plug-and-play workspace on shorter leases. But is this model sustainable? As occupier needs inevitably evolve, will it last? Can it withstand the next recession, and is it impervious to further disruption?


The festival which is managed by Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA), returns for the ninth year on 11 November 2019 with thirty organisations having confirmed their support for the philanthropic week.


Join IFMA-RICS for its 2019 Workplace Week London fringe event hosted at Workplace House, a co-creation space in the heart of Clerkenwell, on Monday 11 November at 16:30. The panel, which includes experts from Atalian Servest, Active Workplace Solutions, OfficesiQ, Yardi, Vacherin and the Royal Academy of Music, will address these questions while representing multiple viewpoints from facility management, design, property, catering, technology and the end user perspective.
