Regus opens new generation workplace in hotelRegus, the global workspace provider, will open one of its innovative Regus Express locations at the Hilton Hotel in Nottingham on Monday 14th September. The new generation workplace offers local firms and people working on the move a working environment that suits their ever-more flexible working lifestyles.
This opening will take Regus’ number of UK centres to over 320 and is further evidence of the company’s UK network expansion, as demand for flexible working continues to increase.
It will be the third Regus Express to be opened in a hotel location and it brings a new dimension to Hilton Nottingham’s existing range of meeting and conference facilities. The site features a drop-in business lounge providing professional workspace, free, secure Wi-Fi and complimentary refreshments.
Additionally, high specification meeting rooms seating two to four people are bookable by the hour.
Demand for ‘third place’ work locations is growing steadily, driven by increasing mobility and the rise of remote, flexible and multi-location working. Research from Regus shows that 40% of UK workers spend at least 2.5 days per week working outside of their main office. Similarly, a third of UK employers are offering their staff more flexible working options. Technology makes it possible to ‘work anywhere’, yet most people prefer an office-style environment to remain productive, motivated and disciplined.
The hotel’s central location means it is ideal for professionals travelling across the UK. Situated within easy reach of East Midlands Airport and the M1, users of Regus Express at Hilton Nottingham will include hotel guests; business travellers; local and national businesses using the facility as a convenient meeting point; and local home-workers seeking a refreshing alternative to working from home.
The launch of Regus Express at Hilton Nottingham is part of a wider roll-out of Regus ‘third place’ locations around the UK, which caters to the flexible working trend.
Richard Morris, UK CEO at Regus, comments: “We know that more and more people are working flexibly, instead of being constrained to the traditional 9-5 in the office. Consequently we are seeing consistent growth of interest in flexible working options.
“The opening of another hotel location testifies to the need for bespoke and dedicated business spaces that match today’s flexible workforce. We are seeing month-on-month growth in interest in Regus Express as retailers, transport operators and universities all switch on to the commercial opportunity presented by the mobile work and business travel market.
“We are confident that this latest site will prove popular with business travellers and local firms alike.”
The Regus Express network in Britain already covers motorway service areas, retail parks, shopping centres and airports.
The Regus Express workplace will be located at Hilton Hotel, Milton Street, Nottingham, NG1 3PZ
