Coworking hot topics

Many of the current coworking hot topics will be covered during the conference: what drives the development of coworking in Vienna and Bratislava? How Vienna uses new working patterns to support its position as the most livable city? What’s the relationship between coworking and smart city concepts? What is missing to increase the coworking and flexible office market share in Europe from 2% to 25%? What are the latest developments and opportunities in automating coworking processes? How to enrich the coworking growth toolbox? Is nichification the way forward in a competitive coworking market? How to make coworking part of global mobility packages?

Coworking Europe 2020 will address this multi-dimensional nature of coworking; a booming industry and a strengthening cultural movement re-modelling the very notion of what workplace is and what it should deliver in terms of human interaction in the 21st century.

 

 

Vienna, the place to work and start-up

Being in Vienna this year makes lot of sense. For the tenth year in a row, Vienna was named the most liveable city in the world by Mercer. The unique balance between outstanding different living factors, a stable political environment and affordable prices makes Vienna a city where one can live and work under the best conditions.

Vienna has also managed to position itself as one of the most vivid, diverse and fast growing tech scenes in Europe. The 2019 Global Talent Competitiveness Index ranked Vienna in fourth place worldwide, ahead of Berlin and San Francisco.

No wonder why the number of coworking spaces, accelerators and startup hubs has risen sharply in recent years in Vienna. How the coworking scene takes part in the shaping up of new city sustainable models, such as the Viennese model, is also an area that will be addressed during the conference. This is also the reason why the City of Vienna is an important partner of this year’s conference.

The gateway to the CEE market

In addition, Vienna is the entrance door to the Central East European market. Vienna’s twin city Bratislava is 45 minutes away from the austrian capital and where most Slovak coworking spaces are found. Bratislava is gradually becoming a global society of knowledge equipped individuals that are, together with highly educated local professionals, creating a new inspiring surrounding for those who are trying to make a difference in the world.

The conference is a unique networking event for all the coworking communities operating across Europe and beyond. The best coworking world experts and practitioners will share their thoughts, insights and ideas during the 3-day event.
