Every year on August 9th, coworking space operators everywhere celebrate International Coworking Day. It’s a chance to educate the public about coworking and the benefits of flexible work options. We also get to say thank you to the awesome people who make up our communities.
At ACE Coworking, we’re excited to be celebrating our industry’s 17th birthday along with our coworking friends around the world. We are all grateful to have survived the recent tough pandemic years, and feeling very optimistic about a future that is embracing hybrid and flex-style workplaces.
What exactly is International Coworking Day about? It marks the anniversary of the day Brad Neuberg first brought modern-day coworking into the world. You can still see Brad’s original blog post announcing the first North American coworking space here. Coworking has come a long way since then – with ups and downs – but the spirit of collaboration and connection is as strong as ever.
This year at ACE we will be marking the occasion in a couple of ways:
1️⃣ OPEN HOUSE!
If you have always wondered about coworking, or what it’s like to work with us at ACE, then please come try us out for FREE on Monday August 8th, Tuesday 9th, and/or Wednesday 10th. Day passes are normally $25/ea, but for these three days we are holding a no-cost Open House just for YOU.
Claim a hot desk spot by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate which day(s) you are coming. (Multiple days are okay too! Just let us know when to expect you.)
While at ACE, drop your business card in our raffle box for a chance to win one of our door prizes – including a gift basket for coffee-lovers, gift basket for book lovers, Zirkova Vodka gift box, or even a one-month ACE membership! (You might even score a free donut or two.)
2️⃣ PARTY! 🎉
Current ACE Coworking members are in for a treat. We’ll be hosting a member appreciation event at our newest ACE location: 132 Trafalgar Rd. There will be food, cocktails, friends and good vibes from 5 to 7pm. It’s our way of saying thanks to the wonderful people who make our community awesome.
