<p lang="en-US"><strong>Last week, EV Hive partnered up with the annual event Social Media Week Jakarta and brought&nbsp; a comfortable co-working ambience into The Hall&#39;s open space on the 8th floor of Senayan City. </strong>Ecstatic, we jumped for the opportunity to further educate the community about coworking and the culture it brings by creating an hour of fruitful&nbsp; community meet up with more than 10 experts.</p>

<p lang="en-US">Turning our booth into a coworking spot, people rested and worked from comfortable beanbags by Holycozy, short tables and fluffy carpets; Our arcade game was the spotlight of our space, people queued and enjoyed themselves, we changed people&#39;s perspectives on how fun coworking spaces can be.</p>

<p lang="en-US"><strong>Panel discussions are boring, seminars are overdone and sharing sessions are usually one -sided.</strong> We brainstormed really hard to create something that is different and will spark interests, so we put together a meet up where participants get to talk face-to-face to the expert of their choice, have a discussion about their problems and made it enjoyable.</p>

<p lang="en-US">EV Hive turned community meet-ups into a speed dating session. With a speed dating format, participants gets to choose who they interact with and instead of the same old QnA session, they were able to have personal interactions undisturbed and get personal insights from the experts.</p>
