Regus expands in Bangkok as local and foreign companies flock to flexible workplaces
January 30, 2014 (Newswire) - Firms of all sizes can gain an enviable base in Bangkok's Siam district, with the opening of new Regus flexible workplaces at Siam Tower. Regus' new centre there offers businesses and mobile workers affordable and flexible access to workspace in one of Bangkok's top-flight business areas.
Regus has seen strong demand for its flexible workplaces in Bangkok's CBD, and it has launched the new Siam Tower centre to add to its CBD inventory. It expects both local and international businesses to make use of the new workspaces.
"Businesses in all sectors want to be in Siam. The district has so much pulling power - from Chulalongkorn University and other academic institutions, to the shopping at Siam Paragon and Central World, the national stadium and the BTS Skytrain hub," explains Christoph Hodapp, Country Manager for Thailand, at Regus.
He continues: "Everyone wants to be here, but the financial commitments involved have put it out of reach of many businesses, especially SMEs. But Regus' flexible workplaces change the financial dynamics. Since there is no need to commit to expensive long-term leases or high upfront set-up costs with Regus workspace, a prestigious Siam Tower location comes within the reach of many more companies. They can thereby invest their money in their business, not in long-term lease commitments."
The Regus workspace at Siam Tower is also a useful stopping-point for the 730-plus million people who now work on the move in Asia Pacific. The walk-in business lounge offers a place for flexible workers to touch down to meet, print, use secure wifi, or find somewhere quiet and safe to prepare for a meeting. They can also book meeting rooms, day offices or use of the videoconferencing. As well as letting them work more effectively on the move, it's an impressive location to talk to potential customers or partners.
Christoph Hodapp continues: "All around the world, in 100 countries, Regus supports businesses and their staff by opening up access to the locations they need, either long-term or for an hour between meetings. I hope our new location at Siam Tower will help businesses at all stages use their time and their budgets more productively."
