The Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC, pronounced ‘juicy’) had it’s roots formed in meetups around SXSW in Austin, Texas.

GCUC USA is produced by Liz Elam and was hosted in Austin in 2012 and 2013 before traveling to Kansas City, Missouri in 2014 and Berkeley, California in 2015. This annual gathering has served as a valuable resource and convenient meeting place for thousands of delegates and many of the movement’s pioneers.

As the industry expands and the model gains momentum internationally, many owners and operators feel the need to meet more than once a year to share best practices and to explore a wider range of topics together. There are new and exciting collaborative spaces opening every day and there is no better way to learn and launch, than from the shoulders of giants.


GCUC is now truly a global experience

Creative Blueprint is excited to finally bring GCUC to Canada. In 2015, GCUC Australia and GCUC Canada will welcome delegates to Sydney and Toronto, drawing from a strong and diverse network of experience and producing events with a unique regional twist.

GCUC Canada will bring you the highlights of the traditional conference format along with the unconference experience; it’s a rare and valuable opportunity for peer-to-peer learning with international delegates. We will explore Toronto’s diverse network of collaborative spaces and successful revitalization projects. We will share Canadian community building initiatives and award-winning workplace design.


We welcome all those involved with or interested in;

Collaboration, business development, incubation, acceleration, coworking, community building, economic development, self-employment, the sharing economy, shared workspace, real estate, social innovation, startups, city planning, the independent & remote workforce, workplace design, architecture, accessibility and sustainability.

You won’t want to miss this one!

Join us September 16th-18th in Toronto, Canada.
We’ll be shaping the new work landscape, while enjoying the fruits of our labour.
It’s going to be GCUC, Canada!
