PHOENIX, ARIZONA (August 4, 2022) – AZCREW, the commercial real estate organization that exists to transform the industry by advancing women globally, resumes its monthly lunch events with a look at office trends around the Valley.

“Coming out of COVID, no one was really sure what the status of the Metro Phoenix office sector would be,” said event moderator, Sam Pinkal, Vice President of Business Development for the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC). “As it turns out, workers are returning to their offices and the market sector is heating up again. When I go out for lunch downtown during the week, it’s hard to get a seat because the restaurants are so full.  There is a new normal, and we’re thrilled that our panel will let us know what’s going on in the office market as it relates to new office design and construction and vacancy rates.”

Panelists include Jim Bulsiewicz, Director, Hines; Charlie von Arentschildt, Vice President, CBRE; and Alexandra Ayres, Senior Associate/Project Design Manager, Corgan.

The event is on August 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the E-Center Esplanade, 2501 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix.

Registration fee is $25 for members; $45 for non-members. This is an in-person event. Please review the COVID waiver and agree to it when registering.
