Coworking Symposium is a joint scholarly and industry half-day long conference on coworking and flexible workspaces. Tackling various topics such as developmental aspects in the post-pandemic world, collaborative and networking perspectives, HRM and other contemporary topics, the symposium focuses on the most recent studies and practical developments of the coworking and the flexible workspace industry.


Following the successful first edition of the symposium that evolved around the HRM perspectives, the Coworking Symposium 2021 would knit its core on the transformation of coworking model and discuss the future perspectives that will emerge in the post-pandemic world. While the last symposium had two modules – a scholarly and industry model – the new edition will focus solely on recent studies and findings that are relevant to the field of coworking and flexible office research. 

The Coworking Symposium 2021 is
admission-free and accessible to a broader audience. Because knowledge should be freely accessible. Hit that RSVP button and reserve your ticket.
