Regus, the global workspace provider, has opened its first Regus Express location on the M1, at Watford Gap motorway service area.

Based on the experience of other Regus Express sites already open on the motorway network, Regus expects the facility to be popular with local professionals seeking an alternative to the home office or looking for a convenient location for meetings, as well as those who work on the move.

It features a drop-in business lounge with free, secure Wi-Fi and refreshments, as well as high-specification meeting rooms which are bookable by the hour.

A Regus spokesman commented: “We’re delighted to announce the opening of our latest innovative Express location at Britain’s oldest motorway service area. This marks the latest step in the expansion of our Regus Express network, which offers flexible, professional workspaces for those who work on the move.

“Notions of ‘the office’ are changing rapidly and we increasingly need places to connect to work, wherever we are. As a company, we are leading a revolution in the way we work and striving to make modern business easier by extending our network of Express locations at leading transport and retail hubs across the globe.”

The opening of Regus Express at Watford Gap is part of a wider roll-out across Roadchef’s network, which includes other sites at Clacket Lane (M25), Strensham North (M5), Norton Canes and Sandbach South (both M6).
