The sharpest minds in corporate real estate and workplace design will come together in Palm Springs this October to explore the future of work at the hotly anticipated WorkSpaces retreat.

WeWork Co-Founder, Miguel Kelvey, Salesforce EVP of Global Real Estate, Elizabeth Pinkham, Generational expert Kim Lear and noted author/futurist Rex Miller top a stellar developing lineup, which also features real estate and workplace leaders from Google, Uber, LinkedIn, and GoDaddy.

Featuring a compelling mix of thought-provoking talk, intimate brainstorming sessions, Q&As, and panels, WorkSpaces will challenge leaders to reimagine the future of work at a crucial turning point for the industry.

WorkSpaces is the eighth addition to influence group’s event portfolio, which includes RetailSpaces, HotelSpaces, RestaurantSpaces, and HealthSpaces. Invite-only, and intentionally limited to just a few hundred attendees, influence group retreats are well known for their cutting edge content and interactive format that fosters authentic and lasting connections.

“We are the complete opposite of what you might find at a trade show,” influence group Co-Founder, Michael Owens, said. “We carefully curate the audiences that we bring together and design our events to be collaborative and experiential. The way the world works is changing rapidly. WorkSpaces will explore this change through the lens of real estate, design. construction and technology.”

WorkSpaces also presents a valuable opportunity for corporate real estate and workplace leaders to identify strategic partners for upcoming projects and initiatives. Attendees are able to schedule one-on-one meetings with relevant suppliers ahead of time through influence group’s proprietary app.

“We have a very diverse mix of leading vendors we know the industry will want to connect with. Everything from smart building and analytics tech, right through to solutions in biophilic design, sustainability, and interiors, will be represented,” influence group Co-Founder, Michael McCarthy, said.

Attendees will also have the chance to rub shoulders with these companies, as well as their peers, at a number of unique networking excursions. Exploration of Palm Springs’ iconic mid-century architecture and a jeep tour through the San Andreas Fault are on the agenda, as is our signature Neon Nights party, featuring an up close and personal performance from BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale,” McCarthy said

WorkSpaces will take place October 27-29, 2019 at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, CA. Learn more at
