RE-THINK 2020 is an exclusive educational summit of corporate occupiers, academic experts and thought leaders, to better understand the forces in our society that are shaping change and innovation in the New Decade.
As our industry continues to transform, we are engaging with leading clients to create an active dialogue on the key themes of Future Workforce, Knowledge Hubs and Technology Blurring the Boundaries of Work, Life & Play.
Combining research from our partners at University College London (UCL), with timely insights from the world of business and CRE, this conversation will explore the forces in our society that are shaping change and innovation throughout the real estate industry.
RE-THINK 2020 will bring together a senior grouping of clients and academics from University College London (UCL), to separate the facts from the noise, with actionable takeaways that will prepare you for What’s Next.
Those with aspirations to understand and lead the change will have the opportunity to contribute to the debate that will reach well beyond typical property considerations.
We believe that this is an incredible opportunity to shape the occupier dialogue for 2020 and beyond.

THE BARTLETT REAL ESTATE INSTITUTE
Our venue is The Bartlett Real Estate Institute (BREI), part of UCL’s world-class faculty of the built environment and a focal point to re-think real estate.
Located at UCL Here East, on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London – a dedicated campus for businesses driving innovation; building on the Olympics’ architectural and cultural legacy.
Occupying the front of the first floor, BREI’s windows look out onto a shared courtyard – itself a live example of the extended value of real estate.
ROBOTICS LABORATORY SHOWCASE
Our summit will include a tour and demonstration of UCL’s high-tech facilities at Here East including a 2,000 sq m robotics and advanced prototyping space that allows for large-volume robotics for manufacture, inspection and testing at factory scales – as well as advanced IVF and surgical methods at the very small and human scales.
Autonomous Drones – The hall is filled with the buzz of drones in a fenced off zone, where researchers from the Autonomous Manufacturing Lab work to develop a team of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) capable of 3D printing concrete structures.
Robotic teleoperation ‘snake’ – Enabling exploration, manipulation and assembly in the new worlds beyond human capabilities. These technologies for telemanipulation will find applications in many fields, including healthcare and robotic surgery, synthetic biology, advanced manufacturing and construction.
The Bartlett Lighting Simulator – The lighting simulator is one of the most sophisticated in the UK: a 5.2m diameter, hemispherical sky dome, fitted with an artificial sun. The simulator can be programmed to imitate the light from sun and sky at any time of the day and year, anywhere in the world.
EVENING NETWORKING EXPERIENCE
The ArcelorMittal Orbit is one of the most striking and enduring visual legacies of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Our evening networking experience will include the opportunity to ride the word’s longest tunnel slide, followed by a drinks reception and dinner with iconic views over London.
THE STRATFORD HOTEL
Accommodation will be provided at The Stratford Hotel, 6 mins from St Pancras International (King’s Cross) by High Speed Rail.
