Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
The conference, also known as GCUC (or “juicy”), and formerly known as the Coworking Unconference, will give coworking community members an opportunity to engage with one another, share purpose and passion and refresh one another's energy in the process. GCUC will host two tracks at once: an “unconference” track with peer-to-peer breakouts for seasoned coworking space owners and a more structured "conference" track for new coworking space owners.
Think Big Partners, a Kansas-City based, technology-focused startup accelerator, launched its first coworking space, bizperc, in August of 2010. After striking up an affiliation with Five Elms Capital and launching a second coworking space in Prairie Village and after getting involved with the Loosecubes online coworking community, Think Big Partners decided to engage in coworking even further by sponsoring GCUC 2012.
“We were trying to find a way to connect with coworking spaces from across the country and stumbled upon GCUC,” said Sarah Snyder, meeting planner for Think Big Partners and manager of the bizperc coworking space. “This was the perfect event for us to attend. Sponsorship was just another way to support the great things they’re doing.”
According to Deskmag, a coworking magazine, the coworking movement has roughly doubled in size each year since 2006. This means that GCUC is expecting a packed house at the AT&T Conference Center in the heart of Austin, Texas. The all-day conference aims to build upon the visions of each community and provide one-of-a-kind opportunities for coworking peers from around the globe.
“I look forward to meeting other coworking space managers, sharing best practices and bringing a fresh perspective of the industry back to Kansas City,” said Snyder.
