conference agenda


The future of work is on everyone’s agenda. This forum will explore how smart technologies are shaping the built environment and the new world of work. 

With the recent practical completion of the landmark building – described as London’s vertical village – we will hear from the pioneers that power 22 Bishopsgate to showcase the many innovations, and technology ‘firsts’ that set this workplace apart and enable a seamless, touchless and safe user experience.

We will look back at the original vision for the building with Sir Stuart Lipton – who has been at the forefront of innovation, and industry leadership, creating a large proportion of London’s iconic developments – as well as exploring the architecture and design journey, and unique amenities and facilities that have been carefully curated to meet the needs of a diverse, connected community and stay true to the core values of wellbeing, learning, equality and sustainability.

Join us for an insightful program with industry experts and workplace visionaries, promising a fascinating look into the future of smart spaces and how to create a truly smart workplace experience for your people.

Expert Panel

Embracing the Role of Workplace in Civic Life

This panel seeks to re-frame the “return to work” debate by bringing together leaders from enterprise companies, real estate and civic institutions around a central question: ‘how will recent changes in commercial development and ‘the future of work’ shape neighbourhoods and cities post Covid19? Economically, socially and even physically?

Centred at the intersection of supporting employees, rethinking commercial spaces and understanding urban growth, this panel will discuss how businesses are pivoting their real estate strategies in the wake of the pandemic
