Meet up, work socially & be productive
At CoWorking Days we create communities in different cities so remote workers, startups and entrepreneurs can meet up, work socially and be productive. You can follow these steps to create your own successful coworking day and share it with our 5000 community members around the world.
Define the purpose and audience: Determine the purpose of your coworking day and identify the target audience. Are you looking to create a general coworking event or target a specific industry or interest group?
Plan the logistics: Decide on the date, time, and location for the coworking day. Consider factors like the availability of spaces, accessibility, amenities, and parking facilities. You can choose to host the event in a coworking space, a cafe, a library, or any other suitable venue.
Establish partnerships: Seek partnerships with local coworking spaces, businesses, or organizations that align with your event’s purpose. They can provide resources, sponsorships, or promote the event to their networks. Collaborating with relevant partners can help enhance the event’s reach and credibility.
Create an agenda: Develop an agenda that includes a mix of collaborative activities, networking opportunities, and educational sessions. Consider incorporating workshops, panel discussions, guest speakers, and interactive sessions that cater to the interests of the attendees. Leave some time for open coworking and informal networking or even a networking lunch.
Promote the event: Utilize various marketing channels to promote your coworking day. Leverage social media platforms, email marketing, local our community groups and relevant online platforms to spread the word. Encourage your partners and sponsors to promote the event as well.
Manage registrations: Set up a registration system to collect attendee information. You can use online ticketing platforms or create a registration form on your website. Make sure to track the number of registrations and communicate any updates or changes to the participants.
Arrange facilities and resources: Ensure that the venue is equipped with the necessary facilities for coworking, such as desks, chairs, power outlets, and reliable internet connectivity. If needed, arrange for additional resources like projectors, whiteboards, and flip charts for workshops or presentations.
Plan for refreshments: Consider providing refreshments such as coffee, tea, water, and light snacks throughout the day. If the event spans several hours or the entire day, you might want to arrange a networking lunch so people can chat about what they do.
Facilitate networking opportunities: Create opportunities for attendees to connect and network with each other. Arrange icebreaker activities, speed networking sessions, or designated networking areas. Encourage participants to share their expertise, collaborate on projects, or exchange ideas during the coworking sessions.
Gather feedback and evaluate: After the coworking day, collect feedback from the attendees through surveys or feedback forms. Analyze the responses to understand what worked well and identify areas for improvement. Use this feedback to refine future coworking events.
Remember, the success of a coworking day relies on effective planning, promotion, and creating an engaging environment that fosters collaboration and productivity
