Moto Hospitality launches workspace service for motorists

16 September, 2013

Moto Hospitality, the UK's largest motorway service area operator, has launched its first Regus Express business centre today, following its agreement with the global workspace provider to offer professional workspace and business support for motorists and mobile workers.

The new business centre is at Moto's Leigh Delamere service area on the M4 Westbound between Swindon and Bristol. It features a large business lounge with co-working space, private workstations (called ThinkPods) and wifi, in addition to meeting rooms.

Regus launched its first business centres on the UK motorway network a year ago. Since opening the company claims they have achieved month-on-month growth in footfall, becoming popular co-working venues for local business people as well as productive touch-down points for business travellers.

John Spencer CEO of Regus in the UK said: “The last decade has seen a revolution in workplace attitudes and habits, creating millions of mobile and nomadic workers who aren’t confined to the traditional office anymore. Providing them with business services on the go, from wifi to workstations to printing facilities, is an exciting and largely untapped opportunity for transport operators.

“We are proud that Moto has identified Regus as best placed to support the mobile work needs of its customers.”

Ashleigh Lewis, Moto’s commercial director, said: “We believe the business traveller continues to have an expectation of facilities that are both easily accessible and provide a productive working environment. We’re excited about this partnership and welcome new Regus customers to our Leigh Delamere services.”

Other ‘Third Place’ deals signed by Regus include Shell, currently rolling out 70 business centres in its service stations across Berlin.

Similar to all Regus’ 220 UK business centres, Regus Express at Leigh Delamere can be accessed with a Regus Businessworld card (£35/month) or with a Mobile Worker package available in Staples stores.
