ULI Arizona – A New Workplace Narrative: Moving Past a Language of Extremes


Thursday, August 15th, 2019
4:00pm - 6:00pm MST


E-Center at the Esplanade 2501 E Camelback RD Phoenix, AZ 85016-4239 UNITED STATES
The open office is dead… or is it.. AND..is that really the question? 
We should be asking “What are the disruptors affecting our workplace today?” 
Will co-working spaces take over the end user market or can co-working spaces become an amenity within a traditional office space? These approaches may be overlooking key workplace strategies and opportunities that are critical to today’s Multi-Generational workforce. Gensler’s most recent Workplace Survey (WPS) begins to uncover the true meaning of an adaptive and collaborative workplace. It’s definitely not an “all or nothing” approach and the Sharing Economy has had everything to do with it.

Join us for a lively panel discussion including some of the Valley’s leading entrepreneurs and real estate professionals, along with key experts from Gensler’s workplace practice as we review the research and crack the nut.

This event is FREE to attend but you must pre-register.
