Yes, the Betagroup Coworking Brussels (AKA Betacowork) will be attending the Coworking Europe Conference. How couldn’t we? We were officially born on the first day of the first European coworking conference, organized by Jean-Yves Huwart in our beloved Brussels last November. Thanks to it we were able to accelerate the launch of our coworking space and during that weekend we already signed up our first five members.
How was it? Exhilarating. We met great people, discovered a lot interesting coworking spaces around the world (some joined from as far as San Francisco), tools in use, practices, concepts… An amazing weekend no matter how you look at it.
This year we are looking for more of that. The program is great and so is the city: Berlin. Germany is the country in Europe where coworking is more developed, and Berlin has some really interesting coworking spaces. We will be hosted by two of them: Betahaus and Club Office. I’ve been at the Betahaus already and it is really worth a visit. Having an opportunity like this to discover Club Office is just great :)
Somebody we are looking forward to see is Joel Dellroy, from Deskmag. I’m sure he will have a lot of insight to share about coworking in Europe!
And guess who are also speakers? Sebastien Arbogast, another one of our members and winner of the first Startup Weekend Brussels with Kodesk, and myself, Ramon Suarez, founder of the Betagroup Coworking.
Don’t hesitate, SIGN UP!
