2018 Conference Summary

Coworking in PA is on the rise. With this exciting growth, several spaces recognized a need to come together as a coworking community to discuss and expand on the philosophy guiding our communities.

The 2018 Coworking Conference was a great time to catch up, share what we’ve learned, and set an intentional course for the future of coworking in our state. Through that process, we are working to create a support network for each other as the movement grows. The Candy Factory—a 14,000-foot coworking space in Lancaster, PA that opened in 2010—hosted the first annual conference. The goal was to discuss trends in the current coworking movement and how to best push the healthiest trends forward. Of course, we enjoyed conversations in the best style of coworking—through the serendipity that can only occur when we combine a group of passionate and talented people in the same room (with beer, wine, and maybe a little whiskey). We had an amazing time building relationships and getting to know all the movers and shakers in the PA coworking scene and beyond.
