Three days of connections
We spend our time connecting people through our spaces and facilitated events. But our roles as coliving founders can sometimes feel quite lonely.
It is something we have encounter time and time again, personally or after talking coliving owners and managers, seasoned and new comers.
There is a need for an event that is designed for us, those who hold space for others. An event where we can make connections, develop synergies and simply know that we are not alone in this.
We are excited to announce that this is exactly what we have planned: the first coliving gathering of coliving professionals filled with workshops, masterminds, trips and those "over dinner" conversations that can make all the difference.
Where we stay
There is no better way to connect, than to colive ourselves (practice what we preach). The event will be hosted by our long-term friends from Gran Canaria - Repeople.
The El Cabo Coliving is located in the coastal town of Agaete, meters away from the sea, restaurants and beautiful hikes. We have only got 30 rooms (all with ensuite bathroom) and due to high demand - we will work on first come first serve basis.
A one-of-kind meetup of
What to expect
One giant (but cozy) gathering of all the people you have heard of but never met or had the opportunity to sit with for a chat.
The program is all about bringing people together and opening doors for collaboration.
Let's make this the first (of many) gatherings of coliving founders where we truly get to know the faces behind the coliving spaces, what keeps them up at night and how they see the future of Coliving.
Build deeper connections with other coliving founders and forge collaborations.
We will host a Coliving Mastermind where we dive into the challenges we face.
3 nights accommodation with shared or private bathrooms in the Agaete.
Exploring the region together through hikes, food tasting and lots of culture.
Build a meaningful network of operators
Get the details
The first day is always about getting to know each other so we will be hosting ice-breaker games, a trip to explore the island and of course, food, lots of it.
Our second day will begin with understanding each coliving operators' challenges and we will end with our very own Coliving Mastermind.
The final day will be all about building synergies, ways we can collaborate and be a strong community driven industry.
Our prices start at €450 but all members receive an additional 10% discount.
"Where does the money go?" is always a fair question, and we are happy to be totally transparent here. Coliving Hub is a non-profit organization, hence it will not make any profit on this event. The pricing is based on cost of accommodation and excursions and to fly-in the Coliving Hub team. All team members of Coliving Hub will volunteer their time during the event.

Elana is our activity guru, leading exercises during our retreat to get us talking and connecting. We will use the castle grounds for the team building exercises.
