    GCUC pronunced "Juicy"

The Global Coworking Unconference Conference(GCUC) is pronounced "Juicy" and it's a big, juicy wave of awesomeness that's changing the face of work as we know it. We're coasting on a wave of accelerated serendipity, making the future of work happen in a whole new way. Founded in 2011 by Liz Elam, GCUC has become a major coworking conference worldwide. 

GCUC first landed in China in December 2015 with its first annual summit taking place in Shanghai, before moving to the capital Beijing for the next event in September 2016. 2017’s conference promises to bring all-new upgrades to the summit! Not only will the event bring together global leaders from the co-working space world to share, exchange and create ideas for the future of the industry, but it will also assemble key figures from the fast-growing sharing-economy at home and abroad. You will also be able to enjoy some of the hottest hip-hop music as well as wonderful debates.

   ▼ GCUC already covers the whole world; since 2008 more than 20 events have been held in more than 10 countries and regions.


GCUC, founded in 2008 by Liz Elam in Austin, Texas, has been the world's largest coworking space industry conference series for eight years and was one of the such industry events globally. GCUC is pronounced ‘Juicy’, implying the rich and juicy era of new office concepts that are currently transforming our perceptions of traditional office styles.


GCUC 2015 was held from 4th to 5th December in Shanghai through P2. This event, marking the first time that GCUC had entered China, aimed to bring together domestic and international co-working space pioneers and leader to discuss the current and future state of the industry in-depth, exchange ideas on business philosophy.
