1989 was the year visionary entrepreneur, Mark Dixon, set about revolutionising the world of work, launching the pioneering Regus Group from his base in Brussels. The business has grown to become the world’s number one provider of flexible workspace. In the intervening years, and in response to changing market dynamics and customer demand, new brands have been added to the business through acquisition and organic growth, culminating in the creation of parent company, IWG plc, in 2016. We are able to provide solutions to match every kind of business, work style and price point, visible across the UK through our portfolio of workspace brands including Regus, Spaces, HQ, Signature and Basepoint.
