For most businesses, real estate represents not only a significant fixed expense, and now one that companies have to put on their balance sheet, but a key component of both recruiting/retention strategy and company culture.  To find the right space for your business, join us as our local real estate experts and finance leaders discuss


Our speakers will discuss the latest trends and market insights for the current real estate market. They will help you develop the right approach for your business, including traditional office leases, flexible office space and hybrid approaches. In addition, they will highlight available incentive programs to help minimize the costs of expansion.

  • Understand the workplace trends amongst office using companies
  • Understand the latest in office and warehouse design, and amenities which companies are using as a tool to attract and retain talent
  • Determine the pros & cons of real estate strategies (traditional leases vs. flexible office space)
