      Unconference formation & submit your topics

      An unconference is a day of, crowd sourced content that is formed by the people for the people. You submit the the topics you want to talk about and the ones with the most votes become sessions! The unconference format is a bit less formal than a traditional session as it is meant to be an open conversation amongst the attendees in the room. Thats why we break into smaller groups. We have also curated topics that we knew you would find of interest.

    Coworking tours


    Whoop! Coworking tours are back again this year!

    GCUC will run 4 different coworking tours on April the 18th—two in the morning and two in the afternoon. Each tour route will see 4 spaces and will have a max capacity of 20. Attendees can only book one tour. Tours will be in luxury buses with a red carpet. Drinks (non alcoholic) will be served. Tickets are non-refundable and can be transferred until April 10th.

    Please note that out of respect for the local coworking spaces-group tours can only be so big as to not disrupt their members. With this being said, group tours are first come, first served and will be cut off when full. If you sign up and can no longer make it- please email info@gcuc.co.

    Ticket signups will close when capacity is reached or on April 10th-whichever comes first!

    Ticket price: $35 for each seat
