I have always been a fan of creative work spaces and that’s why it was love at first sight when I first heard about Regus. Today, I’m an avid user of their worldwide office solutions, which stretch from Are you in need of professional working spaces when you’re abroad, too? Then continue reading.
From Kenya to Copenhagen
It all began with a business man in need of professional office space. Entrepreneur Mark Dixon had noticed the lack of office space available to traveling business people for a long time, and – like many other – he was tired of working from hotels.

In numbers it’s 900 cities in 120 countries, which makes it easy for travelers to find a working space when abroad. Apart from “the regular destinations” such as New York, Paris and London, Regus also cover more exotic destinations such as Nepal, Kenya and Jordan! Personally, I’m personally using the Copenhagen based offices (there are 17 offices in Copenhagen alone, including one at the airport!), simply because they’re easy to access, clean and tidy – and coffee and WiFi is included! 🙂 But how are they different than other work spaces around the city?

It includes flexible office spaces on-demand whether you’re abroad or in your own country, and you can choose to sit in an open lounge area or in one of the so-called ‘think pod’s while sipping on a freshly brewed cup of coffee. If that’s not an ideal solution for a generation of ‘digital nomads’, I don’t know what…
