Event Summary

In 2015, Phoenix started to


national attention as a hub for technology, entrepreneurship and start-ups. Native businesses such as GoDaddy and InfusionSoft had solidified their stake in the tech industry, employing hundreds in the Desert Valley. Technology accelerators began to pop-up, attracting entrepreneurs and

new businesses from surrounding regions. Two years later, Phoenix ranked in the top 10 of

CBRE's 2017 Top-30 report, highlighting its strength as a growing national tech market.

As the Desert Valley continues to make national headlines for its attractive technology office market, where does Phoenix lie on the map in terms of office development, tenant attraction and talent pool? According to CBRE,

the Phoenix submarket of Tempe is number one for rising office rents, reflecting its low-vacancy rates and local abundance of talent. Phoenix

itself has also seen a rise in ex-Silicon Valley tenants, with companies such as

Tuft & Needle making a big and bold move to start up in the Desert Valley.As new tenants

relocated to Arizona, the opportunities grow for the Phoenix office market. Join us this February at our Phoenix Office of the Future event where we'll delve into what the office market drivers are now and what's to come. As always, there will be plenty of opportunities to network with the best in the industry!
