The Bisley team are very excited about the response from the West Coast participants.”

“Bisley has been in New York since 2014 and involved in some significant and pioneering workplace projects over the past three years. I’m looking forward to sharing Bisley’s expertise and discussing the impact of furniture, technology, and of course storage, on the productivity and wellbeing within a workplace”
