GCUC — the Global Coworking Unconference Conference (pronounced ‘Juicy’) — is returning to the UK on the 23rd & 24th September 2019.
GCUC is the largest Coworking conference series in the world and after the success of its London debut last year GCUC founder Liz Elam said, “We are so excited to bring GCUC back to London. 2018 was an incredible year and 2019 promises so much. The world’s largest Coworking event is now truly established in the world’s leading market.”
GCUC UK promises to build on its European debut last year with more brilliant panels and speakers, Awards, lots of networking and a great party. We anticipate over 400 Coworking professionals to attend two jam packed days of fun and content. Day 3 delegates will have the opportunity to attend tours of the most sensational spaces in London.
The market for coworking has evolved over time to encapsulate a number of different services – this now includes serviced offices / executive suites, proworking, innovation hubs and hybrid spaces (incorporating private office space, meeting rooms, lounges and coworking).
Justin Harley, the producer of GCUC UK said: “These are exciting times for the Coworking industry. Growth continues at a phenomenal rate and according to data collected by Instant Offices the market is predicted to grow from 32,000 spaces globally to over 140,000 by 2028.”
Harley goes on to say that “the enthusiasm for the sector must be tempered by a dose of reality. The combination of falling rates in London, increased competition and fast-evolving client demand will mean operators will need to work harder to attract new customers than ever before. It doesn’t matter whether you own, lease or manage your space, you better know your customer and cater for their needs.”
This year GCUC will focus on how to stand out in a crowd. We will combine thought leadership with practical know-how and tips. We will hear from clients about their changing needs and expectations as well as sessions on Sales, Marketing, Technology, Design and expert market commentary and data. This year we plan to recognize those in the sector that are leading the way with our Coworky Awards, as well as run our world famous Coworking Tours and lively Unconference – where you choose the content.
Who should attend GCUC?
GCUC is at the junction of Coworking, real estate, investment, technology and the future of working practices. It’s a melting pot where Investors, Operators, Agents and Owners can collaborate, share ideas, and network with their peers from around the UK and beyond.
Despite a phenomenal amount of press scrutiny and all the associated buzz around the concept of ‘coworking’, there are still misconceptions in the broader real estate market as to what it exactly entails. GCUC will show the way!
If you are in the traditional Real Estate sector this event is a must. If you run or are thinking of running a flexible space, you can’t miss GCUC.
Where and when is it?
The Conference will be on the 23rd & 24th September at ETC venues at 200 Aldersgate London, just a five minute walk from Barbican and St Paul’s underground stations.
