Mobile Work Week presented by LiquidSpace
San Francisco, CA
Over the course of the week, through evening events like venue crawls, presentations and panels and even a party and special lunches, we'll explore everything good, bad and otherwise around today's mobile worker.
Each night there will be a unique event where everyone can come together to meet, greet, learn a little, and live a little. We'll also have some really cool and unique temporary workspaces pop up in our system, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. We'll have some special guests along the way too. You know you want to join!
In this presentation, Ryan Coonerty, Mayor of the City of Santa Cruz, and Melanie Nutter, Director of the SF Dept of Environment, will address the role of government in supporting teleworking, urban sustainability and economic development when it comes to their mobile working citizens, including how to help local organizations bring choice of location to the forefront, empowering employees to choose where and how they work.
Already today, governments are conducting pilot programs to gather data on how choice impacts productivity, real estate cost and carbon footprint.
Furthermore, you’ll hear how business managers and city leaders are creating solutions and support systems to transition this new trend into a working, professional norm.
After the presentation, you'll have the opportunity to visit other LiquidSpace partners including NextSpace Coworking, RocketSpace, Hatchery and DEGW for more drinks and prizes! Look for the red pedicabs to get you from space to space.
The opportunity for developers is massive. Many pain points still felt by today’s mobile workers have gone either unsolved or completely untouched — everything from getting insurance and managing HR to finding a quick flight for cheap or even just keeping up with receipts. There is room for more apps, services and tools and today, mobile workers are busy padding themselves with whatever makes their already hectic work life easier and more efficient.
During this roundtable, we'll go beyond discussing the trends in mobility and hear from specific businesses and developers who have successfully catered to mobile workers with their products and offerings. They'll share challenges and learnings, as well as advice for building your own products and application for the 1 billion mobile workers worldwide.
Come early for the panel and stay late to get productive with the SF Nightowls as we provide space, food and drinks to keep you going throughout the night.
Small business owners didn’t start a company to be ordinary. So how can space reflect the unique culture in a growing organization?

We're closing out the week with a festive and lively lunch discussion about the consumerization of real estate. How is mobility changing our relationship with commercial real estate. People are leaving 'work' to get work done, is that a good thing? Yes! Especially if you design your strategy based on mobility. Mark Gilbreath, CEO of LiquidSpace, Kevin Kuske, Chief Brand Advocate for Turnstone, Gretchen Addi, Fellow Associate Partner at IDEO, and Yancy Widmer, Associate Partner at IDEO will lead a discussion on three important things to consider. Lunch is on us, so come early to enjoy some good food and grab a seat for this forum.
