FAQ

What does GCUC stand for?

GCUC – Global Coworking Unconference Conference

Why do you call it juicy?

We noticed when you say the acronym GCUC it sounds a lot like “juicy”.

What is an unconference?

An unconference is a session in which the attendees choose the topics of discussion. It’s basically a day of crowd-source content. Because the attendees themselves run it, it functions as more of an open conversation. Check out our unconference video here.

What is CAMP?

CAMP GCUC is for attendees who just opened their first coworking space or are looking to open one in the future. But this year we are really elevating the conversation and talking true opperational excelence. Since camp will be after the main conference this year, we are going to take the “meat and potatoes ” and build upon them…. we like to think of Camp as dessert.

Why is CAMP GCUC a separate price?

Not everyone attends CAMP. It’s an add-on to the two day conference that people can choose to attend. Believe us, the camp experience is its own value.

Where will GCUC be hosted this year?

New York City, baby! GCUC is heading to the Big Apple. GCUC 2017 will take place at 117 W 46th Street, New York, NY 10036 at the Convene location right off of Times Square.

How do the Coworky Awards work?

Easy Peasy!

Go here. Chose the category you want to enter a submission for and enter it there. OR you can just vote on that submission…. in the same place.  You can vote once a day so make sure you are voting for your favorites daily! Submissions and voting are open now until May 2nd. It is in your best interest to submit early so you have more time to collect votes! Just saying….

The winners will be decided by vote and by jury on May4th and will be announced at the Coworky Awards on  May 5th in NYC.

Do you have a map of some coworking spaces in NYC?

Yep! You can check it out here.
