On 1 May, Great Portland Estates hosted WPA NextGen’s first thought leadership seminar. It explored the increasingly important role that occupiers play in the West End office market.
Over 110 members attended the breakfast event. It opened with a presentation by Richard Holberton, CBRE’s Head of EMEA Occupier Research, who gave an overview of the 2019 Occupiers’ Survey. Download the survey here.
