With these latest developments, IWG is expanding its reach to over 25 countries within the African continent.
IWG, a flexible workspace franchisor that has seen consistent international growth in recent months, has announced plans to open flagship locations in Togo, Libya, Guinea, and Gabon. The first of these will open in Togo and Guinea this May, with subsequent sites to start operation later this year.
The Togo site will be opened in partnership with Confortis International Group, and is located within the new business district of GTA Lomé II, in front of the General Directorate of LONATO, near the embassies and the headquarters of large companies and institutions and three minutes from the Presidential Palace.
Regus Avenue de la Chance will offer 160 workstations as well as six meeting and conference rooms, across 1,000m2, in a ten storey building also featuring a hi-tech gym, restaurants and premium accommodation.
In the Libyan capital of Tripoli, Alhareth Ghattour will open Regus Almutawasit this June. More than a quarter of the oil-rich country’s population live within the capital city, with the center featuring several facilities including coworking space, meeting and conference rooms, and a business lounge – all located in the capital’s flourishing business hub on the Mediterranean coast.
Guinea, the world’s second-largest producer of bauxite, and a country with rich deposits of diamonds and gold, will open its first Regus center in May. The site will be located just a few minutes from Conakry Gbessia International Airport, and is within 500 meters of the Presidential Palace, ministries, the port as well as the city’s major hotels and banks.
Finally, IWG will also be opening in Gabon, with the Regus Serena Building. This features 38 private offices, dedicated co-working space with 100 workstations, and two meeting rooms. It is located on the third floor of the building and enjoys a privileged location in the Petit Paris area of Libreville, a 15-minute drive from Leon Mba International Airport.
“With the latest openings in Togo, Libya, Gabon, and Guinea, we are delighted to expand our rapidly growing network to over 25 countries in Africa,” said Mark Dixon, founder and CEO of IWG.
“Studies have shown that globally, the flexible workspace industry will support the creation of 30 million new jobs and we are proud to be playing a part in unlocking the growth opportunities afforded by the sector to new markets across the globe.”
