As a matter of fact, many frequent-traveling executives may not even have permanent office space at all any more, as the trend toward "hoteling" office space becomes even more widespread. (Office hoteling refers to the practice of providing office space to employees on an as needed rather than on the traditional constantly reserved space.)
The trend extends to our lives on the road, too. How many times have you needed some space to spread out and get some work done when you are away from your office traveling on business? Have you ever wanted to hold meetings with important clients or colleagues in a proper office environment, instead in your hotel room or at a restaurant?
Or like me, someone who works out of a home office and would like a meeting place somewhere more professional than my dining room table.
To help solve that dilemma, Best Western has partnered with Regus, the world's largest providers of flexible workspace. Starting in early August, Best Western Business Advantage members will get complimentary Regus Businessworld Gold membership, which allows access to its 1,200 business lounges in 95 countries around the world, where they can simply drop in to work or hold meetings in a professional environment.
Regus lounges are similar to airline airport clubs--clean, professional, beautifully furnished with access to business equipment and services. For a fee, members can rent fully furnished, fully staffed private offices, meeting rooms and business support services.
Are you ready to update your workspace and improve your image? Then be sure to join Best Western's free Business Advantage program--and once you've done that, activate your Regus Gold membership here.
