TWN Annual Meeting
Please register for this year's Annual Conference in Oslo.
The dates are 25th to 29th September 2016
This year is a joint meeting between members of The Workplace Network and the Public Real Estate Network for Europe.
It offers you the chance to meet and learn from your peers around the world - up to 30 organisations could be represented - all engaged in the work of owning and managing public real estate - providing offices for ministries, departments and agencies of government as well as infrastructure, heritage, law enforcement and education buildings, and land, and a whole range of other types of property.
The challenges we face are similar everywhere. Attending this Conference is one of the best ways to make connections and learn from others' experience; an investment of time that members find pays back many times over in years to come.
Next Week! W4 Annual Meeting
The W4 Network for the up and coming stars in your organisations is about to hold its annual meeting in Mexico, hosted by our friends in Indaabin. We're excited about the programme which focusses on contemporary challenges in Asset Management.
We will be starting three Working Groups on:
- International Standards, Asset Data and Definitions
- Asset Management Strategies: International Experience
- Skills and Training for Property Asset Management
We hope you'll want to get involved. We'll report back after the meeting.
Public Sector Asset
Management - Research Report
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - the worldwide body for property and estates professionals - has just published a report on its research into public sector asset management.
A number of member organisations took part in the research, and the findings form the basis for this year's W4 meeting theme.
