San Francisco, CA – September 19, 2022 – Washington D.C. is the fastest growing U.S. city for offsites this year, according to new data from Peerspace, the leading marketplace for hourly venue rentals for meetings, productions, and events. The peer-to-peer marketplace looked at booking growth for offsites this year, and found that Washington D.C. grew a whopping 83%, followed by Boston, Massachusetts (+52%), and Las Vegas, Nevada (+51%). Meanwhile, New York and Los Angeles lead the way as the most popular cities overall, and Chicago shows no sign of slowing down, ranking as both one of the most popular and fastest growing cities.
These increases come amid a major shift in where Americans work and live, with businesses of all sizes reassessing their approach to hybrid work. Offsite bookings on Peerspace have been on the rise since early 2021, and jumped 21% in the first half of this year compared to last year.
“Offsite and meeting bookings are picking up significantly this year as more companies work out new hybrid or remote first models,” says Peerspace CEO Eric Shoup. “San Francisco and New York City continue to be popular destinations for offsites, but we’re also seeing exciting growth in cities like Washington D.C., Boston, and Las Vegas. Employees are looking for the chance to get together in person as needed, and when they do, they want to gather in destinations and spaces that are exciting and inspire creativity.”
Access to hourly venue rentals enables teams to gather without the need for a long-term lease, and opens doors to interesting, dynamic spaces to meet and create. Popular amenities for offsites on Peerspace include high speed wifi, speakers, projectors, and video conferencing. Companies of all sizes and budgets are driving this trend, with spaces available for as little as $50 per hour.
