About this event

As demand for flexible work environments grows, commercial real estate costs rise, and employees enter the remote workforce, coworking becomes even more important.

As more companies embrace remote work options, co-working spaces help them fill a unique void. They look like an office without the rigidity of one. Co-working offers social opportunities, networking prospects, and general human interaction in place of the isolation of working strictly from home. 

There’s a lot to love about co-working. 

But why is co-working space important? 

What impact will it have as the workforce continues to evolve?
