Thanks for the shout out, love and support, Jen (and Ryan too!)
For those of you interested in coworking events, we’ve added a few more cities to the calendar. For the most up to date list, please visit www.qtly.io. Many folks have been asking us about it. We are not a group of competitors; we are a group of collaborators. That said, there is a need and a desire for spaces to connect on a local level either because they want to know more about their local industry or they can’t always afford to go to some of the amazing global conferences. We wanted to bring the magic so many of us are fortunate to experience at events like GWA, Coworking Europe or CUAsia to everyone; so have made them local and low cost.
We also witnessed a trend where different groups were defining spaces and putting them in categories rather than being inclusive. No matter what you are: coworking, cafe, accelerator, library, gov’t run space. If you share space for people to work or collaborate in, you’re welcome to participate. No labels here. We often discover that by surrounding yourself with different types of spaces helps make you a better manager and makes you better informed to help out potential members who might not be the best fit for your space.
Let’s follow the amazing example of folks in Denver, LA, Boston, DC and Chicago by proving that referring others to each other is the rising tide which will lift all our boats.
Additionally I totally second the suggestion for participating in the People at Work Summit - such an awesome amount of learning and content from last year!
Lastly - there is now this AMAZING coworking retreat that we’re hosting in Barcelona this May. Coworking Insights and Coworkation approached us to partner with them on this and we can’t wait to spend a whole week making some real coworking magic!

You should check out QTLY “A local event series by and for owners and operators of shared workspaces… and then some.” I believe they will be announcing a number of cities shortly! http://convene.community/
A great way to connect with your local community and get insight from owners and operators!

I would like to attend some coworking events this year and I’m wondering if you can let me know of any event you are aware of.
I’m in the US. and although I would love to travel overseas, not sure if the budget will resist that
I checked the GCUC page and it seems like there is one in the US East Coast in May but no location yet on the website.
Anybody knows where will it be?
Any other event you know of?
