1st iPlace webinar (online) will take place at 29 September, hosted by Heerlen, iPlace city partner, and its ULG member Brightlands Smart Services Campus, and will discuss the benefits of co-working spaces and the challenges that COVID-19 pandemic brought to current time.

By sharing workspaces more efficiently, other opportunities arise, such as allowing the workspace manager to curate more “community activities”. Businesses in these co-working spaces also help each other to build productive networks to increase leads and possibilities to find new clients.

This was a winning formula before the COVID-19 pandemic. The question is how do these spaces continue to be successful post-pandemic. Can the local business networks be sustained ‘virtually’ without a connection to a physical space? What changes are workspace managers making to adapt or is the co-working space business model not working anymore.

This is an important discussion for iPlace Project, a network of ten small cities from across Europe, co-funded by the URBACT Programme, with the aim to find new niches for local economic development, in particular, to support their local entrepreneurial ecosystems.

The webinar program,that happens at 29 September 13h – 14h (Central European Time) counts on participation of Heerlen entrepreneurs and iPlace project members.

This webinar is an online event and interested people should sign up here for free.
