What does office occupancy look like on a global scale?

The office sector has tumbled from its pre-Covid, no. 3 spot in LP interest, and now the world waits to see what the workplace will look like going forward. Even with the demand for traditional office space decreasing, the common sentiment is that office will never be obsolete. This leaves more questions than answers. How is the sector adapting and what are the key drivers? When and how will people come back to work? Which regions will see an uptick in the need for physical office space, and what are occupiers doing to attract tenants? Hear the answers to these questions and more.
