As usual, we have here the Coworking Spain Conference, to be held this year in Valencia, under the theme “Shared City”. The Coworking Spain Conference is a meeting where coworkers from all over Spain meet, and we invite you to participate as a shared workspace in Barcelona that we are. The event will serve to interact with other coworkers nationwide and will be integrated by professionals and entrepreneurs who will be in charge of giving talks and workshops related to the coworking world.

The meeting, in the pure style of the events that take place in our coworking in Poblenou BCNewt, will not only act as a space for learning and knowledge exchange, but will also promote networking for attendees to share their projects and businesses with each other.

The attraction of the Coworking Spain Conference will also focus on the quality of its speakers, specialists in their professional area from all over Spain, who will offer their ideas and knowledge at this great gathering. An example of this: the attendance of Eduardo Forte, one of the founders of Betahaus Barcelona, the largest coworking in Spain!
