Regus opens second centre in Wuhan on back of growth
Network expands as smart businesses seek flexible workspace in China and Asia
Wuhan, China, 18 March 2014 - Regus, the global flexible workplace provider, is opening its second business centre in Wuhan to meet accelerating demand from enterprises keen to establish a foothold or grow in one of China’s fastest-developing business hotspots.
The new centre brings the Regus network in China close to 80 centres and comes shortly after its rapidly expanding portfolio reached a landmark 300 centres in the Asia Pacific region.
The unique scale of the Regus network enables businesses in any sector and of any size – global corporation, sole trader, start-up or SME – to benefit from greater flexibility and cost savings.
The Regus Poly Plaza centre is located in the Wuchang central business district. Together with its sister centre at Wuhan Tiandi, located in the Jiang’an district, Regus offers now two key locations on both sides of the Yangtse River.
The centre will support businesses already in Wuhan, or considering it as a gateway to China, by providing flexible workplaces that can be adapted to meet any client’s needs. It will also serve the growing number of workers who require productive workspace to work effectively on the move.
“We are committed to meeting the steep rise in demand from companies of all sizes and industries for working environments that can be adapted easily and cost-effectively to the business needs in China, especially in fast-growing cities such as Wuhan,”said Hans Leijten, Country Manager of Regus China.
“With our extended network, businesses can effectively manage business risk, maximize their financial resources, and increase their flexibility in the dynamic Chinese market.They only pay for the space they need and they can scale up or down when needed. There is no upfront investment needed, clients can start working from the first day. This really lowers the entry barrier for our client to come to Wuhan or start up in any other city in our global network.”
As one of the fastest growing cities in China, Wuhan was recently named one of the world’s most dynamic cities in terms of city planning, infrastructural development and economic growth. Its local government’s GDP growth target for 2014 is 10%, well above the national average.
Establishing a new Regus centre in Wuhan will help meet businesses’ needs in this quickly developing business hub in central China.
The expansion in Wuhan offers new opportunities for local, national and international companies that want to capitalise on the growth of the region.
