It depends on the coworking space or company but most coworking spaces provide non-members the opportunity to use their facilities as guests by offering day passes for purchase. Day passes typically allow all-day access to common areas, as well as business class fiber Internet service. Day passes can be useful for traveling business professionals, in addition to letting non-members test the waters at a coworking space before committing to a membership.
Some coworking spaces, such as Venture X, offer their event spaces for non-members at hourly rates for business social networking events, product launches, and other gatherings. Catering is available for events, along with ample parking in most locations. Most coworking spaces feature various sized conference rooms and meeting rooms that are available to rent for non-members at an hourly rate for business presentations, team meetings, training sessions, client meetings, and other business needs. Conference and meeting rooms are equipped with everything you need to feel confident about delivering professional presentations, including state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment Venture X podcast rooms (where available) also provide everything you need to produce a professional podcast, as a marketing initiative for your growing company’s authoritative online presence. The Venture X community manager can also arrange for catering in meeting and conference rooms.
While non-members are allowed access to common areas via day passes and the use of conferences and meeting rooms at hourly rates, coworking memberships offer businesses and individuals so much more at reduced member rates. Even though you may not need an office to work out of every day or at all, virtual office memberships can give your business the boost of a prestigious business address, with mail and package services and access to all member events, day passes, and member rates for conference and meeting rooms. Coworking spaces work on a scalable, flexible system of monthly contracts so long-term commitments binding members to coworking spaces are not a concern. This also allows businesses to scale up or down as needed.
