GCUC Manchester Recap

By Stormy McBride On June 13, 2024 In CommunityGCUC UK

We are now a week post GCUC Manchester and still reeling from the event. As our first real physical event in the city, we were unsure what to expect going in but can now say that it blew our expectations out of the water. The sold out event was an absolute hit with all involved.

A few highlights from the event:

An inside look at how CBRE is seeing the market followed by a chat with operators to confirm (and rebute) what the CBRE data is showing.

Our lovely venue with a view and the weather. How lucky were we to get a beautiful sunny day to sip on the patio post conference? Thank you to the awesome team at X+Why.

Interactive roundtables that included conversations around revenue management , community engagement and data utilization.

An in depth discussion on the merits of Sustainable accreditation and their place in the flex market that brought out some differing opinions. The final verdict? Bcorp certifications are contentious in the coworking and flex industry. While they have their place, they are not make or break, necessary.

A cheeky chat between Justin and Rupert …. A conversation that didn’t stray away from the mistakes made in the process of growth.

The Flex Fest afterparty. If you know, you know. Full “fancy dress and a glitter bar included. HUGE thank you to our partners at Technology within and Clockwise for pulling out the stops for this one.

Coworking tours that showcased many different offerings and models across Manchester City.

GCUC Manchester would not be possible without all of the support and collaboration from our community.

We want to give a big thank you to our partners, Yardi and our other partners…GCUC would not be possible without our wonderful sponsors. Yardi, our 2024 headline sponsor, technologywithin, Koho.ai, Clockwise Offices, x+why, Wavenet and Nexudus. Please go check them out and tell them we sent you.

To the speakers and experts that volunteered to share their insights and spend the day with us, your contributions were invaluable.

To our attendees, GCUC is what it is because of you. It is built for you, by a small team who want to see you succeed and grow. Thank you for being willing to collaborate, come tother and grow the future of work.

Lastly, our team, Emilie and Lizzy, you smashed it. We know putting on a conference is not easy but you did an amazing job. Thank you for all of your hard work.

If you asked us if we will be back next year, well… stay turned.

For now, GCUC is headed to London this fall and we’d love to have you. The details for the event will roll out over the next month or so but make sure to mark your calendar for the 10th-11 in October.

We hope to see you there,
