As coworking grows at a remarkable rate, so too does the number of people interested in connecting with other coworking space operators, enthusiasts, and visionaries.

One fantastic way to tap into all that coworking brainpower is to attend in-person events. Around the world, organizers are throwing a variety of coworking events designed to help people succeed in the field and connect with other leaders. Deskmag recently rounded up the major coworking events of 2016.
