Poland, the emerging EU giant, is hosting Coworking Europe’s 10th edition
The largest international event devoted to Coworking is celebrating its 10th edition in Warsaw. Close to 800 delegates coming from 55 different countries are expected in the capital.
For the first time, the Coworking Europe Conference is taking place in Central Eastern Europe. For this 10th edition, we are very happy to be able to give our attendees the possibility to get a glimpse into the tremendous catch-up of Poland, the so called emerging EU giant. Close to 800 coworking operators and stakeholders from 55 different countries will gather during the 3-day event on November 13-15th in Poland’s capital.
Poland, the eighth largest economy in the European Union and the largest among the former Eastern Bloc members, is gaining ground quickly against western neighbours. The Polish office market is transforming rapidly and adapting to growing occupier requirements. Coworking spaces have become a mainstream alternative to traditional offices and not just a mecca for freelancers. The rapid growth of modern coworking spaces for start-ups and small/medium enterprises has brought the market to a point where coworking providers are the fastest-growing group of tenants continually looking for prime locations across Poland.
International players like WeWork, Mindspace, Spaces… and strong local big-shots like Brand Embassy, HubHub, Business Link… are competing for market share and trying to find their niche, galvanizing the real estate sector of cities like Warsaw, Wrocław, Łódź, Poznań, Kraków, Lublin and Gdańsk into action. According to Real Capital Analytics, Poland had by far the biggest YoY increase on real estate investment of all EU countries. We are looking forward with much anticipation to get a peak at Warsaw’s buzzling local scene.
Coworking Europe 2019 will address the multi-dimensional nature of Coworking; a booming industry and a strengthening cultural movement re-modelling the very notion of what workplace should be and what it should deliver in terms of human interaction in the 21st century. Flexibility, hospitality, sense of purpose, community or people’s care are at the very heart of what makes coworking successful and popular. Coworking is a technology enabled and social enabling experience fitting the needs of modern workers.
The best coworking world experts and practitioners will share their thoughts, insights and ideas during the 3-day event in Warsaw. The program and the speaker’s lineup can be found on the Coworking Europe Conference website: www.coworkingeurope.net. The Conference is as well a unique networking event for all the coworking communities operating across Europe and beyond.
