Here are the best sites to find coworking spaces across the country. As a coworking space owner, I have puzzled over how to get the word out that I even exist. Coworking directories have been popping up in the last 3 years.
Coworking directories show what amenities are available, what other coworkers think of the space and how well the space would be suited for different types of professionals. The directories allows travelers and professionals to get in touch with coworking spaces directly. Travelers are more likely to go online to find information about coworking spaces.
