National Advisory Council: Health and Wellness Strategies for CRE (by invitation only)
Presented by Building Owners and Managers Association International Conference & Expo
Open to BOMA’s National Advisory Council members and invited guests only.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated what had already been a growing interest in health and wellness in building design, operations, and tenant workspaces. However, evaluating the information and options for healthier, safer buildings can be a daunting task. A panel of wellness experts and industry practitioners will discuss health and wellness trends, resources, technologies, tenant expectations, costs, certifications, and more. Learn how CRE is embracing the health and wellness revolution and hear recommendations for evaluating and incorporating health and wellness strategies for your buildings, your tenants, and your companies.
- What are the priority areas for health and wellness for you, your firm, your buildings, and your tenants?
- What changes are tenants expecting in building operations and workplaces? How can building owners and managers help tenants optimize their spaces?
- What recommendations/upgrades/changes are short-term? Long term?
- How are owners and managers evaluating the many new technologies and products that have been developed to achieve a healthier and safer workplace? Which are fads and which are real? How do you evaluate cost, practicality, and effectiveness?
- How important is health and wellness certification, and what are the options? Is there a need for third-party validation and labeling?
- How will the current public health crisis revolutionize healthy building design over the coming years?
- What are the best resources for CRE health and wellness trends? How do you stay up to date on trends and share best practices?
