“I have been attending the NY WORKTECH conferences regularly for four years and I find them to be an excellent array of presentations and discussions about design, technology, real estate, futurism and sociology relating to the workplace. The presenters are always well prepared and thought provoking and the audience is rich with expertise and insights. I always make new and valuable contacts at WORKTECH and come away feeling enthused and excited about developing and implementing new ways to improve the work environment. I highly recommend this conference to everyone interested in the evolution of how we work.”
