FAQ

What does GCUC stand for?

GCUC – Global Coworking Unconference Conference

Why do you call it juicy?

We noticed when you say the acronym GCUC it sounds a lot like “juicy”.

What is an unconference?

An unconference is a session in which the attendees choose the topics of discussion. It’s basically a day of crowd-sourced content. Because the attendees themselves run it, it functions as more of an open conversation. Check out our unconference video here.

Where will GCUC be hosted this year?

Singapore! STI Auditorium on the 9th floor of Capital Tower, 168 Robinson Road S068912. The closest MRT station is Tanjong Pagar

Do you have any transportation recomendations?

Public transportation. Parking is scarce and expensive. MRT and taxis are the best way for tourists to get about. The general population is very friendly, so don’t be shy asking for directions or recommendations!

Where should I park once I arrive?

There is parking onsite within the building. As it is located in the CBD, parking rates are astronomical. There are other options in the vicinity but we reckon most delegates will take public transportation

Will the conference be live streamed?

There are a lot more options slightly further down closer to the Chinatwon area which is cheaper, but you will need to arrange transportation to the venue.
