Letswork launches marketplace for private offices and meeting rooms on co-working app
Letswork, a coworking platform based in the UAE, has launched its meeting rooms and office marketplace. The New marketplace includes rooms from brands under Emaar Hospitality Group, Accor, Hilton and Marriott as well as office spaces from local co-working spaces including The Co, Nook, OneSpace and Calyp.
Letswork led the wave for global hotel co-working trend in 2020 by converting guest rooms at Rove Hotels into offices for day-rental as soon as the lockdowns began easing in UAE. It now offers this service at various other hotels in Dubai and is looking to expand its footprint to other markets. In the UAE alone, it has helped over 25,000 individuals and teams find a space to work and meet from in the UAE.
With a growing global trend in remote-working, Letswork is looking to capture the growing market for short-term workspace solutions. Since 2020, it has seen a shift in its consumer base from freelancers and entrepreneurs to corporate employees that now make up two-thirds of its members.
Hamza Khan, one of the co-founders at Letswork, commented, “Before the pandemic, remote working was typically reserved for freelancing digital nomads. Now in 2021, tens of thousands of companies globally are either embracing a fully remote policy or a hybrid office/remote model. As cities around the globe reopen, we expect people to take advantage of this newfound freedom and become digital nomads in their own right – whether for an hour to meet colleagues in person or a whole day for what we like to call, a ‘workcation.”
The platform, accessible on both the Letswork website and mobile app, allows users to book private offices and meeting rooms in business centres and hotels across Dubai. According to Khan, the meeting rooms and offices can be hired on an hourly basis and booked through their app. Letswork has already processed over 1,000 bookings of office and meeting rooms since its beta launch, clocking over 11,000 working hours primarily from corporate users.
With an eye on the, Letswork was the first digital platform in the region to activate hotels and cafes as shared workspaces during the day. Users could sign up for a membership to gain access to and perks from a growing network of coworking spaces, hotels and work-friendly cafes with a single pass.
