Dubai: Workspace provider Regus has opened a new business centre at the Dubai World Trade Centre, serving both free zone and onshore Dubai licence holders, the company announced on Sunday. It said that the new centre is its first dual-licence centre, offering conference rooms, private offices and co-sharing workspaces.

The official opening of Regus’ new centre was attended by Dubai World Trade Centre vice president Abdalla Al Banna and Dubai Economic Department directors Walid Abdul Malik Ahli and Khalid Al Fahim.

Speaking at the event, Vassilis Bazinis, country manager at Regus for the UAE and Oman, said: “Today’s workplace is undergoing a revolution, driven by the increasing demand for flexible workspace.

“The opening of our 21st business centre in the UAE marks the first dual-licence workspace for Regus, and enables us to serve an even broader cross-section of companies from one of the most central business addresses in Dubai. By providing workspace solutions that are immediate, and flexible in length of lease and set-up, we enable businesses to operate in the most efficient manner from the day they arrive.”

In addition to the Dubai World Trade Centre location, Regus has already opened a business centre at Jumeirah Lakes Towers this year.
