RETHINK Office 2017

Thursday, November 30, 2017 (All day)


The summit that connects fast-growing corporate tenants and forward-thinking commercial landlords

Office tenants favor more sophisticated and technologically advanced work spaces and buildings to meet the rising expectations employees have from their employers. Often, large and fast growing tenants are leading the forefront of innovation and experimentation.
As a result, commercial developers and landlords are increasingly planning and developing a new generation of buildings and office spaces that are more diverse and truly customized to how people work best.
RETHINK Office brings together fast-growing corporate tenants and forward-thinking commercial landlords for a special day of learning, idea sharing and networking.
