(Johannesburg SA, 29 April 2020) May 27th 2020, sees an exciting admission-free event hitting the digital airwaves. The Coworking Symposium will be hosted by an impressive speaker line-up.
Originally in the form of a half day conference in Prague, this gathering has now been pivoted to be a purely digital assembly, in light of the recent Covid-19 restrictions. Taking on this format means the reach is far greater than first anticipated, making it a truly inclusive and worldwide event.
Coworking Symposium 2020 will focus on recent and emerging trends in the coworking industry. There is a widening gap between workspace researchers and coworking industry experts that would need to be patched due to the swift hybridisation of contemporary coworking environments. Coworking Symposium will, therefore, bring some of the key minds of both worlds to open a discussion on developmental trends, investment opportunities and future collaborative workplace movements.
“This is the ideal opportunity for industry masters and coworking members to network and to answer those burning questions – especially now when as an industry we need to come together to navigate ‘the new normal.’” says Marko Orel, organiser of the event.
