Innovation is the creation, development and implementation of a new product, process, or service, with the aim of improving efficiency, effectiveness, or competitive advantage.   Innovation is not something that happens by chance.  It takes effort to “think outside the box” and address the changes that are taking place in Corporate Real Estate.

“Creativity is the ability to have an idea and innovation is the ability to get it done.”    - Duncan Wardle

The 2021 Mega Event Keynote Speaker, Duncan Wardle is the former Head of Innovation & Creativity at the world’s most creative organization, the Walt Disney Company.  (He spoke at the 2019 event in CA) Duncan brings an energy and enthusiasm for innovation and will provide tactical ways to REIMAGINE the Real Estate industry.    

We are seeking proposals that share meaningful ideas and solutions that illustrate how collaboration and creativity were used to address issues related to Corporate Real Estate.  What physical changes have been made, what safeguards’ have been put in place, how change was approached, how do you expect the future of workspace and/or landlord requirements to be impacted?  Describe the innovative thought process behind the planning, protocols that are in place and/or planned for future implementation.
