Regus Opens Door To Coworking and Flexibility in Edmonton

The world’s largest office space provider increases presence in Edmonton at First Edmonton Place

EDMONTON, AB (November 24, 2014)  In response to demand in Edmonton to increase flexible office spaces in the downtown core, Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, announces its new business centre with a dedicated coworking space. The new centre is located at a prestigious location, First Edmonton Place (10665 Jasper Avenue, 14th Floor), and is opening its doors today.

Entrepreneurs, small businesses and large corporations, are changing their approach to work, choosing flexibility over traditional long-term leases. Businesses can take advantage of this new business centre to mitigate risks and increase professionalism much more affordably than purchasing long-term office space in downtown Edmonton. A prime business location, the centre is close to oil, gas, finance and technology companies, with the Corona light rail station on-site.

“We’re opening our second business centre in Edmonton with a dedicated coworking space due to increase demand for flexibility and it’s growing entrepreneurial community,” said Craig Townsend, Marketing and Partnership Director, Regus Canada. “Edmonton is the gateway to many oil and gas companies and has a booming startup community. This new business centre caters to a variety of businesses companies, whether they are looking for an office for one day, to one month or five years.”

The new Regus centre is part of a network of 2,000 business centres in 104 countries around the world and 63 centres from coast-to-coast in Canada. It is the second location in Edmonton in the downtown core catering to local and overseas businesses looking for:

  • A professional business atmosphere
  • Flexibility for entrepreneurs and startups
  • Short term and long term access to the oil & gas industry
  • Access to the network of Regus centres across Canada and around the world
  • A prestigious location
  • Networking with like-minded businesses
  • Meeting rooms (small and large boardroom)

The new Regus ceintre provides fully equipped offices, coworking space, ThinkPods hot desks, virtual offices, meeting rooms and administrative staff as well as memberships to access to business lounges across the world.
