Recorded breaking office take up and satisfying demand despite economic challenges and political uncertainty in 2017, demonstrated Birmingham's resilience. As we move into 2018, will the big improvements in the city's infrastructure be enough appeal to support the steady growth of the city?
Occupiers from all sectors have shown that cost is not the only deciding factor, but as CoStar reports, "suitability and quality of product" will show whether Birmingham can offer spaces that compete on a national stage.
With billions of pounds invested already in the development and infrastructure pipeline, record-breaking investment from foreign companies and seismic disruption being created by technology, learn about what 2018 holds for Birmingham and network with the players shaping the city.
We're bringing together expert panelists on our first-ever Birmingham State of the Market event. Our speakers will deep-dive into their development & leasing strategies, their hottest projects, and how and why Birmingham is being redefined.
