Global Coworking Unconference Conference Hits Austin this Spring
According to Deskmag, the coworking movement has roughly doubled in size each year since 2006. This has been all too apparent in Kansas City (think bizperc, OfficePort, KCCowork, Beta Blox, etc.). The coworking craze has taken hold of the nation...and for good reason. Coworking gives entrepreneurs who would have never even met the chance to put their heads together almost every single day.
But just as there are thousands of entrepreneurs who cowork, there are also thousands of ambassadors who help make coworking happen. One of these organizations reigns from Austin, Texas...and they're the group that's hosting the coworking conference of the year--Global Coworking Unconference Conference on March 8, 2012.
What can coworkers expect at GCUC? According to the team behind the (un)conference, a lot. In fact, GCUC isn't just one conference--it's a conference and an unconference rolled into one. Allow us to explain.
GCUC will have a Conference Track, the perfect event for those who are new to coworking. During this event, noobies to the coworking world can ask pertinent questions and sit in on enlightening discussions from national coworking leaders (like NextSpace, Blankspaces, Loosecubes, Deskmag, CoCo, Launchpad Creatives and more).
The Unconference Track, on the other hand, is a bit more loosey-goosey. During this portion, attendees will have the chance to learn about new and exciting tools in the coworking world. The Unconference invites attendees to come ready to make passions realized and to share a vision for the community. But as GCUC proudly states, "it wouldn't be an unconference if we had a schedule!"...so prepare for anything!
