The Global Coworking Survey Is Back - and Now Open
Today, the biggest worldwide study of coworking is officially underway, reflecting a better understanding of various facets behind the movement in order to support sustainable growth. In its sixth year, the Global Coworking Survey collects responses from current and former coworking space owners, operators, and members from around the world. Their responses, published into free reports, provide comprehensive results on the coworking movement. You can continue to support the movement by taking part in this year’s survey, and by becoming an official supporter.
2016 Coworking Forecast
This year’s forecast and trends of the coworking market doesn’t differ strongly from past years according to new results of the Global Coworking Survey.

This is the year we’ll see over 10,000 coworking spaces open by the end of 2016.

Yet, surprisingly, the increase in members has not led to a more isolated work environment.
