Q2 Serviced Offices Market Review to be Published in July
It has been a challenging year for the serviced offices industry here in the UK, with the financial pressures placed on the 1000ΓÇÖs of businesses that utilise serviced offices each year impacting upon the industry throughout the UK.
While the market showed signs of recovery in the closing stages of 2009 and into the opening quarter of 2010, the challenges have continued to mount and made all those within the serviced offices industry aware that this initial recovery could be fragile to say the least.
Serviced offices play an important role in helping businesses of all shapes and sizes, from start-up businesses to other SMEs and even blue-chip multinationals. The secure, cost effective nature of the way they operate has become increasingly attractive through recession and has coincided with a large increase in the amount of commercial property occupied by serviced offices.
With its growing role, tracking the changes and trends in the utilisation of serviced offices is not only important to those dependent upon a continued interest ΓÇô such as landlords, providers and commercial property agents ΓÇô but also a significant way of gauging business activity and the commitment levels amongst UK businesses.
In response to this we here at officebroker.com, the UKΓÇÖs leading online broker of serviced offices, took the decision to launch the Serviced Office Review Series ΓÇô a set of quarterly reports detailing market activity within the UKΓÇÖs 2500 + strong serviced offices community. Each report presents officebroker.com data showing quarter-on-quarter changes in the number of businesses entering serviced offices, the size of those businesses as well as the commitment levels being seen from them and the costs involved within the serviced offices industry.
