RETHINK Office: Boston takes place on November 7, 2019. Join corporate real estate executives, office property leaders, and workplace specialists as we gather for the second annual event in Boston.

This year’s conference offers a bold opportunity to re-examine many closely held beliefs about how office space should be designed, taking a fresh look at workplace strategy, office building design, employee-friendly technology, and major cost savings initiatives. We will look at current trends and key pain points shared by large and fast-changing tenants, giving special attention to the massive shift towards flexible office strategies. On tap are expert panels, focused interactive workshops, closed-door roundtables and educational presentations. Don’t miss this special opportunity to connect with your peers, update your knowledge and rethink office.

RETHINK Office is a national conference series held in cities where high cost office property intersects with high cost office workers, driving a powerful business need to control expenses while also doing everything possible to activate real estate as a tool to attract and retain talent.

Participants are largely corporate real estate executives from large and/or fast changing organizations, as well as office property managers, owners and developers. In addition, select attendees with expertise in areas of design, technology, data, leasing, law, accounting and workplace strategy participate. The goals of each event vary by region but inevitably revolve around central themes of workplace strategy and design, development and construction, leasing and management, technology and innovation, with the aim to identify key factors that influence employee attraction, productivity, connectivity, collaboration, health and wellness and energy use, while identifying ways to reduce expense per square foot.


I appreciated the chance to participate and wanted to compliment you on putting on a terrific conference. The speakers were informative and compelling and the panels were topical and relevant. – David Brothers, New Jersey Institute of Technology

The event was a success for us. Very happy with the level of senior contacts at the event and the quality of the discussions/content. – Gabrielle McMillan, Equiem

I thought the speakers were excellent. I was most impressed by the many high-level people from large and well-regarded companies who came and participated. In that regard, it was one of the best events I’ve been to. – Michael Seeve, Mountain Development
