The New Amenities: Creating Differentiated Experiences that Engage and Attract Webinar

Thursday, Oct. 27 | 2-2:45 p.m. ET

Register online

In recent years, physical amenities have become an imperative perk to differentiate your property’s experience, but the rise of COVID-19 has shifted consumer behavior and the role of the office. Soon, pressure for employees to return to the office full time will ease, and it will be up to landlords to create a differentiated foundation for programming, engagement and collaboration that tenants want to return to that cannot be replicated at home. In this webinar, hear experts from NELSON Worldwide discuss why the traditional definition of amenities will expand to support lifestyles – both in and outside the property – and successful future perks will be a blend of digital offerings and experiential environments.

The current pandemic has already caused significant relocations of people and companies away from densely populated urban areas. Will this trend continue, or is COVID just accelerating what was already happening? Is this trend reversible? This session will review the results of a survey conducted of the world’s top corporate site-selectors to share their views on these trends, and how localities – urban, suburban and rural – can best position themselves in this ever-evolving economy.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, those charged with leading, managing, operating and maintaining their organizations and facilities are now likely faced with significant new uncertainties. In this new landscape, it's critical to take a fresh look at each building, facility, campus, manufacturing site or office complex and ask: "What is the function of this facility now and in the future?" Proven approaches and tools can help you to minimize risks as you face previously unexpected decisions and challenges while preparing for reentry.
