EMEA Occupier Survey 2018

The 2018 CBRE EMEA Occupier Survey highlights a strong and growing focus by corporates on deploying technology, wellness and flexible space as core elements in an agenda focussed on enhancing the user experience.

• Companies intend to invest more heavily in new real estate technologies over the short to medium term. Their reasons for doing so are increasingly shifting towards enhancing the user experience and also raising workforce productivity. This represents a clear move away from aiming real estate technology at purely operational goals such as energy management.

• This shift of focus is reflected in the technologies of choice: wayfinding apps, connected sensors, wearables and personal environment control systems. Room or seat reservation systems and sensors are also being increasingly adopted to support improvements in space efficiency.

About the Survey 


The EMEA Occupier survey polls real estate decision makers at more than 100 companies to understand their objectives and associated challenges across a broad range of issues. Respondents span a broad range of sectors, notably banking and finance, technology, life sciences and professional services. Nearly half of the respondents are headquartered in either the UK or USA, and a further third in the major European markets of Germany, France, Italy, Sweden and Spain.
