Why You Should Host Your Next Event at a Coworking Space

If you are looking to host an event, a coworking space might be the best option for you! Although coworking spaces are known to be great for public-style community-based events like networking events, job fairs, company parties, and more, they can also be excellent backgrounds for private events such as baby showers, bridal showers, micro-weddings, etc.

Coworking spaces are no longer just reserved for businesses or individuals looking to get some work done, collaborate with their partners, or gather for a group meeting in a rentable conference room. As time has progressed, people have begun to realize they can utilize the space for almost anything! With Spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to plan those spring/summer parties – graduation parties, bridal showers, baby showers, weddings, and more. So why should you choose a coworking space for your next event location?

  1. Staff Support Coworking spaces have staff specifically designed to ensure any event goes smoothly from start to finish. These individuals support you in the overall setup of the event, guiding attendees when they arrive and through the event, providing directions to essential amenities such as restroom access, and more. They can also partly play security guard when needed. 
  2. Event Security – Speaking of security. If you are looking to host a private event, generally, coworking spaces are private, with only members of the space allowed access. Many coworking spaces that are membership based have key fobs or door codes to enter the building, which would ensure only your guests could enjoy your event. During the event time, your party will be closed to the public. No party crashers here!
  3. Amenities – Coworking spaces offer their members and guests amenities that other venues may not promise. Coworking spaces have access to clean restrooms, access to coffee bars, community kitchens with refrigerator access, furnished areas, music/sound systems, and much more!
  4. Community – If you are looking to host an event for the public, a coworking space has a pre-established community that would allow individuals who are already members of the space to view your event on the event calendar. This type of awareness could help draw new individuals to attend your event and increase your event’s awareness in general.
  5. Extra help with promotion of your event – If people are unaware of your event, you cannot expect it to be successful with plenty of attendees. It is crucial to promote your event as much as possible. With a coworking space as the backdrop, they have access to social media followers, email marketing lists, and more that would be privy to your event. This free promotion can help you ensure attendance at your event.
