First time we participated in the GCUC (pronounced "Juicy") in Austin, Texas aside with Coworking spaces that run for some time, people that want to start one, people that just closed down one, some that want to franchise their Coworking spaces and so on. We as newbies were especially interested in operations, culture and networking.
The first day was in a Conference format with 4 panelists and 1 moderator each - about future, culture of Coworking, interest of corporations and serendipity in Coworking, lead by Seattle's Office Nomads owners.
The second day was a Unconference were participants requested discussion topics and formed groups in different forms and numbers to exchange knowledge and discuss these topics. This format was particularly helpful for us as we heard from multiple Coworking spaces how they are run and what they use, how they use it and why.
Office Junction received a lot of valuable information over the course of these 2 days and is ready to get started.
