The number of people using coworking hot desks in 2021 was a staggering 3 million, and is expected to rise to 5 million by 2024! Coworking is growing in popularity as remote work becomes more common across every industry.
This is no surprise, as coworking spaces offer excellent resources such as meeting rooms, printers and scanners, and stable, secure internet. Add to that the connections people make when coworking, and the recipe for success seems apparent.
Remote workers interested in global travel will be happy to hear that while most hot desk space has been concentrated in the United States and Europe, the trend is changing and coworkers can find thousands of great spaces to work in any continent in the world.
But not all coworking hot desks are priced equally. Read on to learn which countries have the priciest hot desks in the world!
Global Demand Is Rising
Prices for a hot desk, a workspace in the open communal area of a coworking space, are rising all over the world. While North America’s hot desk prices decreased from 2021 to 2022, they increased in every other continent.
This trend is expected to continue as the demand for hot desks grows internationally. Remote work is changing not only how people work but also how they live. As technology allows for remote work in many industries, people are realizing that they can live anywhere and still do their job.
To many, it makes sense to move from an expensive city in the United States and instead live in one of the world’s cheaper cost-of-living cities.
Top 10 Priciest Countries for Co-Working
As expected, the costlier cities of the world also have the most expensive hot desks. The global average monthly hot desk is $206 but there are 10 countries that are pricing much higher than average for a hot desk in 2022.
- Switzerland $363
- Hong Kong $344
- Qatar $314
- Norway $300
- Sweden $297
- Singapore $295
- Saudi Arabia $293
- Iceland $285
- Luxembourg $284
- Australia $282
Of these countries, half are new to the top 10 most expensive hot desk list. Switzerland has remained consistent, as they were number two in 2021 and Hong Kong made the leap from fourth place to the number two slot, as their average monthly cost increased by about $8 from 2021.
Until supply catches up with demand, we should expect to see prices continue to rise over the next few years. The number of jobs going remote continues to increase, making coworking office space a viable solution for an increasing number of workers.
