We never get tired of celebrating all of our favorite events that are returning after pandemic-related delays. This one is particularly close to our hearts: The Berlin Coworking Festival. After two long years away, it returns in 2022 on September 5th - 9th and we couldn’t be more excited.
What is the Berlin Coworking Festival?
It’s the occasion on which we celebrate the coworking spirit in our hometown (and surrounding state). We love it because we break out of our usual routines and say hi to the people who shape coworking communities day in and day out. What benefits does this festival bring to the participating spaces and visitors?
- Showcasing how varied and diverse our local coworking scene is.
- Demonstrating through events that there is so much more to a workspace than desks.
- Building shared experiences at a party for participants and visitors.
- Creating solidarity amongst coworking spaces.
- And in a first for the festival, there will be international coworking experts in town to share their knowledge with us.
Our friends and neighbors will open their doors and demonstrate the values that have turned coworking from a little-understood niche into a formidable global cultural phenomenon.
Our founder, Thilo Utke, is the creator of the Berlin Coworking Festival, and members of our team have supported the festival in various ways throughout the years. We are proud to welcome everyone, not just spaces currently using Cobot, because we believe strongly that our successes as an industry are tied together regardless of which software you’re using.
