London has continued to hold on to its reputation as one of the world’s leading hub for coworking spaces. According to the Global Coworking Growth Study in 2019, ‘a coworking space opens in London every five days. This puts it ahead of New York and Toronto as the highest growth market for flexible workspace in the world’. Therefore, it is only right that GCUC comes back to London for the second year.
The ‘unconference conference’ is recognised as the melting pot where operators, investors and owners collaborate, share ideas, network and learn with their peers from all around the world. It embodies an intersection of real estate, technology, investment and the future of coworking.

This an ideal event to satisfy your curiosity, network and collaborate. The conference will be held at The King’s Place which is just a five-minute walk from King’s Cross and St. Pancras Stations with a spectacular view over the Regent’s Canal.
