Canberra Airport has joined the ranks of other global business hubs such as New York, London and Munich, with workplace provider Regus touching down.

The Regus Canberra Gateway Business Centre boasts 900m2 of prime lease space and features a contemporary and fully equipped business lounge, private offices, meeting rooms, and kitchen.

The Centre provides an efficient drop-in workspace dedicated to keeping business professionals productive when they’re on the move, as well as private offices offering companies a state-of-the-art workspace at the airport. The new centre is ideal for meeting clients before or after a flight, where you can book a meeting room by the hour or simply drop in and use the lounge facilities.

Located within Canberra Airport’s award-winning redeveloped terminal precinct, the architecturally designed location features an abundance of natural light and contemporary facilities.

Amenities surrounding the centre include an airport hotel, cafés, showers, plenty of parking, public transport and the nearby Brindabella Business Park, which offers childcare facilities, sporting fields, tennis courts and a gymnasium.

Regus Country Head for Australia and New Zealand, Damien Sheehan, said the site is the second in Australia.

“As the nation’s capital, it makes sense that we expand the Regus terminal-side offering into Canberra – particularly to provide resources to those who fly in and out on the same day and need an efficient, convenient location to fulfil their business needs while on-the-go,” Mr Sheehan said.

“This is another way that we are helping our customers to maximise their productivity.”   

Global business travel spend growth is expected to rise above six percent in 2018,  ending an "era of uncertainty" among corporates regarding spending, with revenue predicted to reach a record $US1.6 trillion in 2020.

Canberra is living and breathing this rate of travel, with Tourism Research Australia showing close to 3.1 million passengers were at the airport in the 12 months to 31 July 2017.
