Swiss Coworking Forum

Postponed to Spring 2021 – exact date to be confirmed

Are you ready for coworking?

In 2020, the global movement of coworking is celebrating its 15th worldwide anniversary. In the last 5 years, coworking has developed from a trend to a market. What does this imply for your business? Do you know enough about coworking?

The Coworking Forum is aimed at :

  • real estate professionnals who want to understand how coworking could be part of their strategy,
  • Human ressources & change management professionals who want to understand how coworking can help them offer a motivating and flexible work environment to their workforce
  • coworking operators and coworkers who are willing to share how communities supports their business growth.

Let’s meet, learn and build strong and lasting relationships amongst three worlds.

The Swiss Coworking Forum puts in perspective the working aspirations of the young generations with the established corporates, be it on the real estate market on within the human resource management sector. The Swiss Coworking Forum shows the business world that a great working atmosphere and community can fit their future.
