The Regus Group Opens Its First Centre in Kitchener, Ontario

    Regus 12,000 square foot centre features 49 fully-furnished and equipped
    state-of-the-art offices in the heart of downtown Kitchener

    DALLAS, Jan. 21 /CNW/ -- The Regus Group (LSE: RGU), the world's largest
provider of fully furnished and equipped offices with 950 locations in 70
countries, today announced that it is opening a new business centre in
Kitchener, Ontario.  The nearly 12,000 square foot centre is located in the
heart of downtown Kitchener on the seventh floor of the TD Canada Trust Centre
Building at 55 King Street.  The centre features 49 offices, 101 workstations,
one boardroom and one videoconferencing studio.
    "We're happy to provide our clients with the opportunity to work in one
of the most attractive, high profile buildings in Kitchener," said Wes Lenci,
Regional Vice President for Regus. "Our new Kitchener centre is the perfect
alternative for those clients seeking cost-effective office space compared to
the much higher rates in Toronto.  It also provides a great alternative for
those clients wanting to avoid what can often be an hour-plus commute into
Toronto.  Our advanced telecommunications and networking capabilities make it
convenient and easy for companies of all sizes to quickly establish satellite
    Regus offers its clients a number of benefits including: the freedom to
grow, downsize, or expand their business to another geographic location with
minimal disruption; simple, one-page contracts; one, fixed monthly price, that
includes everything they need to run their business; state-of-the-art IT; and
a global network of more than 950 locations that allow members unlimited
access to Regus business lounges worldwide.
    Lenci added, "The ideal location of the centre, with its close proximity
to the Trans Canadian Highway, and the highly diverse economic base were key
factors in our decision to locate our centre in Kitchener.  We feel that our
solutions are well-suited for organizations representing any industry. Whether
from the technology, financial services, pharmaceutical or some other sector,
we're confident that we can offer them the office solution that best fits
their unique situation."
    One area client summed up his experience with Regus by discussing how the
company helps him remain productive.  Tom Vella is the Director of Business
Development for Heineken Canada and has been a Regus client for seven years.
He currently has an office in the company's Mississauga (Airport) location.
    Vella says the Regus support and services are a major benefit to him.
"Regus offered us a one-stop shop.  Whether it's administrative support,
welcoming visitors at the reception area, answering the phones, special
project work, sending and receiving courier packages, booking meeting rooms,
providing audio visual equipment or providing IT support -- we know that Regus
will take care of these and any of our other office needs. This allows us to
focus on managing our business," says Vella.
    He added, "With Regus we didn't have to invest in anything.  We were able
to walk into to a fully-loaded office and start working.  Another significant
benefit Regus offers us is the option and flexibility to go with shorter-term
agreements so we're not locked into a five-to-ten year, long-term lease
agreement.  We can easily adjust as our business needs dictate."
    Every day Regus provides more than 200,000 clients worldwide with
flexible and cost-effective workplace options to meet their specific needs.
Whether using a fully furnished office, a virtual office that provides clients
with a local business address, meeting rooms or videoconferencing facilities,
businesses working with Regus are able to establish an immediate presence at
prime business centre locations such as the Kitchener TD Canada Trust Centre.
    The Kitchener centre will hold its official grand opening and ribbon
cutting on Thursday, February 7, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Several local
dignitaries including Mayor Carl Zehr and members from the chamber of commerce
will be in attendance.
