Networking and bedsharing at conferences — Update

Following our earlier post on the Salone del Mobile’s bedsharing project, comes a non-profit venture that’s dedicated to making conferences greener and more sociable. SpaceShare develops online tools for environmental logistics and networking. The aim is to help people share and save resources while building community. The company works with event planners to orchestrate complex logistics for large events, letting participants find other participants nearby to carpool or travel together on trains and planes; share taxis or car rental from airports to conference venues; and share a hotel room or find local residents offering space for a homestay.
