Last week I got back from traveling in Europe again starting in Berlin where I attended the 2011 Coworking Europe conference. I wasn’t a speaker this year like I was last year so the pressure was off – I got to enjoy this year’s conference as an attendee. I enjoyed seeing everyone I met last year and really liked spending time in Berlin.
The first day of the conference was at Club Office and the second day was at Betahaus. Everything was well organized and it seemed like there were a lot more attendees this year than in 2010. I discussed a wide verity of topics with fellow coworking folk, but mostly I enjoyed geeking out about coworking as I love to do. Conferences like this are a place for making connections rather then getting anything specific done so it’s hard to list out my accomplishments on this trip. Success will be measured by the ongoing relationships I’ve built; to that end I can say that last years trip has been hugely successful. This years conference provided a nice anniversary for reflection and I’m excited to see where coworking is, and where it is going.
