Global flexible workspace provider opens 15th UAE centre in Dubai’s Sports City
Dubai, UAE; Tuesday 17th February 2015 – Regus, the global provider, has reaffirmed its commitment to the Gulf’s SME and international business community with the opening of its 15th centre in the UAE.
Regus has been appointed by The First Group to manage the SOLO Business Centre in The Bridge building in the heart of Dubai’s Sports City. This newly managed centre is one of the best ways to work affordably from an enviable address, with fast and convenient connectivity to the rest of the city and beyond, via Dubai’s major road networks.
Offering 4 floors and comprising 56 fully furnished offices, multiple meeting rooms, a drop-in business lounge and video conferencing facilities, the centre’s services can be accessed by the hour, day, month or longer, without the high overhead costs involved in leasing independent space. This makes it a cost-effective working environment for both visiting associates and local businesses alike.
Regus UAE Country Manager Kory Thompson said: “Dubai is one of the world’s most exciting international business hubs and we are committed to enabling anyone who wishes to have a foothold in the city. Location is key to many of Regus’ 1.8 million customers worldwide and the UAE is no different. The new facility is in close proximity of the new Al Maktoum Airport close to where the 2020 Expo will be hosted.
“Of course, it is not only visitors who wish to do business in Dubai. The city is home to a burgeoning SME scene, bursting with creative talent and our latest centre provides the perfect office space for these companies to flourish, without the worry of signing up to costly long-term leases.
“We look forward to welcoming members, new or old, to the new Dubai, Sports City Centre and to demonstrating first hand how world-class opportunities are created in world-class working environments.”
“We are really pleased to have teamed up with Regus, a global brand that has an impeccable business reputation. The SOLO Business Centre managed by Regus is second to none and thanks to its outstanding facilities, we know that this project will be a huge success,” said Rob Burns, Chief Operating Officer of The First Group.
Regus now offers 15 locations in the UAE; seven in Dubai, five in Abu Dhabi, including Sowwah Square, which opened last October, and one by Sharjah Mega Mall. Businessworld Gold card members can access this, or any other drop-in business lounge in the UAE or around the world, without charge.
