“The appetite for flexible, co-working spaces was growing in Cayman pre-COVID and the pandemic has only increased demand now that work habits have changed significantly. There is also a clear international demand from those who wish to take advantage of the Regus network and the Government’s Global Citizen Concierge Program, and we’ve been delighted to welcome several new members who seek a professional and flexible workspace under this initiative”
Sophia List, Client Relationship Officer – Regus Cayman Islands
(CMR) The grand opening of Regus, an existing new global business was launched at the Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event on Friday evening at The White House at 20 Genesis Close, George Town. Premier Wayne Panton was on hand to assist with the ribbon-cutting aspect of the evening's festivities.
To support the international and local business community of the Cayman Islands, Regus, which forms part of the International Workspace Group (IWG) and the world’s leader of flexible and coworking workspaces, has opened its first location in the Cayman Islands.
The event was well attended by various members of the business community who were treated to an exclusive tour of the full-service private office spaces facility conveniently located in the central George Town business district. Guests included the newly appointed Premier of the Cayman Islands Mr. Wayne Panton, Minister Kenneth Bryan, Senior Government and Business Leaders and Chamber of Commerce members.
Regus offers remote working with a new flexible workspace for local businesses, entrepreneurs, and global citizens alike. In serving its global and local communities, Regus provides flexible workspace solutions for modern-day businesses, alongside the successful Cayman Islands Government initiatives such as the Global Citizen Concierge Program which is aimed at those wishing to work remotely from paradise, within a COVID-free community. It already boats three members of the Global Concierge Program.
IWG, the parent company of Regus, has been at the forefront of global workspace solutions for many decades and recently announced a record start to 2021, adding half a million users to its network in the first quarter. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact in accelerating the changes in the way people are working, but now companies of all sizes are indicating that hybrid work is here for the long term.
Now the group has expanded its Caribbean offerings with the new Regus center in George Town which provides a significant investment in Grand Cayman’s capital and will see IWG, and specifically, Regus, expand throughout the Caribbean, adding to locations in Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago as well as its 3300 locations worldwide.
George Town, and the Cayman Islands as a whole, will seek to benefit from the presence of such a sophisticated group with over more than 30 years of experience in launching and running flexible spaces all over the world, and an array of established flexible office and coworking brands under its belt to match different demographics and local business needs.
