The provision of coworking spaces or hubs in Indonesia, notably in Jakarta, has increased exponentially since 2014. The current 65 creative hubs offering is expected to hit 100 in 2017 as more local and international players enter the market. Popular locations in Jakarta will see intense competition for market share as cash-rich venture capitalist giants jostle with independents to attract local talent.

Conclave offers flexible hot desk facilities and virtual offices to attract a mix clientele of digital nomads, freelancers and startups. Besides the first location at Jalan Wijaya in south Jakarta, Conclave is venturing into the city’s historic business district to attract bigger corporate clients to its newly opened Kuningan office venue at Menara Global.

Virtual office services packages could be a growth area for Conclave where space is premium in an expensive city like Jakarta. The basic virtual office plan at IDR 7 million a year includes a business address, mail and document handling services. A domicile letter is also issued to formally register Conclave as the user company’s address. The ‘plus’ plan costs IDR 10 million a year and gives all the benefits of the basic plan, with additional usage of the meeting rooms and dedicated workstations.

Users may also rent ‘hot desks’ on a first come first served basis within a designated shared desk section of the hub. Local members may pay IDR 100,000 for a day pass or IDR 2 million for a monthly pass. A special student price for the day pass is IDR 50,000. Global members enjoy access to both Conclave locations by paying either IDR 3 million for a month’s membership or IDR 25 million for the annual plan.

Small teams looking for a more permanent work station may rent a small private office. The monthly subscription starts from IDR 13.5 million. On top of the regular amenities enjoyed by all members, private office users enjoy 24/7 access to their space, mail and document handling services. They also enjoy free use of meeting rooms for 12 hours per month.

All users enjoy free-flow coffee and high-speed Wi-Fi. Conclave also has meeting rooms, mini classrooms and a 125-seat auditorium for rent as required. Monthly movie screenings are organized at the Wijaya location. Workshops, sharing sessions and networking events are key activities at the coworking spaces. Well-known entrepreneurs and industry experts are invited to share insights with members. Conclave’s event partners include Techtif, Creative Mornings and SeringSharing.
