GVA Sawyer traditionally participated in the summit. President of GVA Sawyer and plenipotentiary of the Russian Guild of Managers and Developers in Moscow and the Moscow region Vera Setskaya shared her views on the development of the office space market in 2020 in the course of the panel discussion “Trends, forecasts, technologies” and presented case studies from foreign markets. “We used to try to fit our mentality and work algorithms into the office space offered to us, but now it is the other way round. The format of the offices, office space planning, even the decoration should be adjusted to the needs of people, their mentality, the peculiarities of doing business today, which are speed, comfort, convenient socializing in the course of work, flexibility, adaptability to circumstances. Office becomes not only a place of work, but also a place of relaxation.” – this is what the recommendations from the developed markets sound like.
