Ever heard of Co-Work? Perhaps not yet, but it could become your new favorite word. It could even have you longing to go to work on a Monday morning.

What better place to start your work week than downtown Palm Springs.

The Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce is breaking the rules and redefining what a powerful local business advocacy organization should look like by unveiling  Co-Work, the new collaborative work space located in the newly renovated mid-century headquarters located at 190 West Amado Road downtown.

Chamber President Steven Henke calls it ‘a place where good people and great ideas come together.” He says, “We know that visitors can work anywhere when they visit Palm Springs, but connecting them to members inside Co-Work will ensure new ideas take root and grow in Palm Springs.”

Co-Work faces the O’Donnell Golf Club and features inspiring views of the San Jacinto Mountains at each of the bar-height co-working stations in its main room.  “We want to create new opportunity in Palm Springs by inviting non-brick-and-mortar business owners into a relationship with our Chamber membership,” says Chamber CEO Nona Watson.

Co-Work will be open during normal Chamber business hours and available to members and non-members alike.  Features include collaborative workspace, a private office, a coffee lounge, and the Co-Work Lab – which seats 22 and include state-of-the-art AV equipment for group meetings and presentations or an offsite brainstorming and strategy location for companies who need it.

Membership in a shared co-work space has been proven to expand professional networks, increase referrals, and drive new ideas born of collaboration, and boost creativity, productivity, satisfaction, and happiness for remote workers who no longer have to work alone.

“We know that Palm Springs works best when Palm Springs works together,” says Henke, adding that he expects the new space to be fun, social, inspiring, and all about community.
