At Convene, we think where you work matters. A lot. Physical space has the power to make or break your focus, your mindset, your mood. It shapes behavior, molds culture. And when it falls short, your productivity and creativity often do the same. But what about when it’s amazing?

That’s where we come in. We apply the best in design, technology and hospitality services to unleash human potential. We transform the workplace into a place you want to be. Think high-end boutique hotel—culinary chops and 5-star service included. We take care of all your needs. You do your best work.

We work with the world’s most prominent property owners to put this experience in place. For people who want the workplace to work harder—the changemakers, thoughtleaders, creators and go-getters among us. Because when it happens, it changes human behavior for the better. And it’s all in a day’s work.
