Why This Matters

What You'll Learn:

  • Key considerations including land availability, financial incentives and potential rental value when developing urban life science real estate.
  • Emerging urban clusters — how city centres are positioning themselves to attract occupiers and talent compared to campus innovation hubs.
  • Meeting demand — creative strategies to reposition low income generating space into lab and R&D workspace.
  • How real estate owners and investors are finding new ways to engage with early-stage life science companies by providing turn-key laboratories and office space.

 

How You'll Do More Business: In the UK, the growing demand for life sciences workspace is currently outstripping supply. Hear from the people reimagining their portfolios and how value can be unlocked by converting existing city centre assets to life science real estate. Plus, exclusive insight into the development, operations and management strategies to deliver successful incubators and accelerators.

 

Who You'll Meet: Investors, lenders, owners, developers, local authorities, tenants, agents, architects, planners, engineers, construction and advisors.

 

What You Get: Access to all live content, panel replays on-demand, and live networking that is dynamic and actually useful. Networking tools include direct messaging, lobby chat and speed networking which have led to over 5,000 matches this year.

 

Why You Should Attend: Bisnow events bring together the biggest power players in the industry to identify opportunities, build your network, and expand your business. With the largest audience of commercial real estate professionals in the world, no one knows how to help your business more than us.

Urban Life Sciences: Real Estate Opportunities Beyond The Borders of Oxford & Cambridge
The well-established Oxford-Cambridge Arc continues to flourish, but these two cities cannot accommodate all future growth, and opportunities for research and development spaces in other locations are becoming apparent. This session will examine how city centres are positioned to attract and retain talent, how to translate the campus in a city centre, and the strategies to deliver successful, commercially viable urban life sciences real estate.

Delivering Incubators and Accelerators 101
The life science sector is seeing a surge of young companies, who need real estate to support their growth. To do so, life science real estate needs to evolve in its functionality, both operationally and physically, to provide spaces that not only provide flexibility and turn-key solutions, but the infrastructure and coaching needed to accelerate companies and the products they are creating. Life sciences incubators and accelerators are a critical part of the life sciences real estate ecosystem. This session will examine the life science real estate user journey and explore the type of spaces and offerings needed to meet the industry’s growing demand, and the opportunities these provide.
