together and celebrate the start of the week, allowing visitors the opportunity to experience the
comforts of a WeWork office space.
WeWork Australia General Manager, Balder Tol, said: “Technology has completely changed
the way people live, work, and play, and we are seeking human to human connection now
more than ever. Everything we do is focused around fostering a global community. Much
more than just a workspace, we are actively bringing an already flourishing community of
local entrepreneurs, startups and larger companies together with like-minded people all
over the world.
“Curated for members to connect, learn, and grow, events are an essential part of the
WeWork experience. Designed to bring people together every day, space is our platform,
and community is our catalyst, so events are an opportunity to connect with other people
in real life. ”
A global company with a local playbook, WeWork focuses on evolving a space into an
experience, ensuring each individual location reflects the community in which it is situated.
WeWork is a global network of workspaces where companies and people grow together,
transforming buildings into dynamic environments for creativity, focus, and connection.
WeWork’s new Brisbane location at 310 Edward St, will mark the eleventh WeWork location in
Australia, opening the same day as 383 George St in Sydney.
