IWG opens three new flexible offices to tap into rising demand for hybrid working
IWG has debuted its Spaces brand in the UAE with a central location in Dubai CommerCity and two Signature flex offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi to meet demands of businesses and workers for accessible and affordable hybrid working spaces.
Spaces Commercity brings a fresh perspective to flexible working in Dubai, currently ranked 18th in the Global Growth Market for Flex Spaces. This follows the opening of Signature Supreme Court Chambers in April, in the Dubai Courts complex and the opening of IWG’s Signature Al Maqam Tower ADGM in the heart of the financial centre in Abu Dhabi in February.
The new openings come in the wake of a surge in demand for flexible office spaces across the country, where 90 percent of employees have shown a strong preference for hybrid working in a 2022 study. IWG’s CFO Study in October 2022 revealed 80 percent of global Fortune 500 CEOs see hybrid working as a solution to cutting costs and reducing office space.
IWG’s Spaces offers a high-quality, dynamic working environment that facilitates creativity and innovation and is an apt fit for Dubai, reputed for its forward-thinking and entrepreneurial spirit.
IWG already has a presence in more than 3,500 locations in 120 countries worldwide. The brand is helping businesses navigate the new world of work with flexible workspace solutions that offer elevated levels of service in upscale city-centre locations.
Mark Dixon, CEO & Founder of IWG, said, “The UAE is an important business hub, and we are excited to grow our network in the region with well-designed creative working environments to meet the needs of this high-growth market as the demand for hybrid working continues to rapidly accelerate. Our workplace model is convenient, boasts modern amenities, and is proven to increase productivity. This is particularly significant in a market where a rising SME sector can benefit from the choice of scaling up or moving locations as the business enters new phases of growth.”

IWG creates personal, financial, and strategic value for businesses of every size, from some of the most exciting companies and well-known organisations on the planet, to individuals and the next generation of industry leaders.
