Alternative Workspace - Panel Discussion on Agile Workplaces

Join IFMA SF at the Gap Headquarters in the special View Room on August 20th for a Panel discussion focused on Alternative workspaces.  Have you been considering leasing a coworking space? Are you currently leasing a coworking space?  Our distinguished panelists will share their experiences with coworking spaces.  They will inform you of the pro's and con's to leasing and working in spaces like these.  They will inform you about different types of coworking brands and share their thoughts on the advantages and disadvantage of working in these spaces.  We aim to help Facilities Managers make a more informed decision, when deciding to use coworking as part of their real estate portfolio.
