Record Turnout for big 6 Office Market Seminar

​​Covering the big 6 UK regional markets, we held our annual seminar on 25 February at BAFTA. Our experts gave their views on the respective markets and advised the 224 strong audience on where trends will take them over the course of the next 12 months. Overview - regional level Strong economic and employment growth, business expansion and confidence in the UK regional market has seen prime rental growth and a reduction in incentives across the majority of markets, which is set to continue in 2015The investment market led the charge in 2014 but by year-end the occupational market had matched the pace with all big 6 markets recording strong take-up levels and witnessing an increase in active demand. Development activity is underway in all but one of the big 6 markets, but the level of demand for new Grade A space is outstripping supply with a shortage intensifying in all marketsAs a result, 2015 is set to be another strong year for the regions with occupier demand expected to remain strong and further rental growth anticipated.
