Since it was founded back in 1992, the Alliance Business Centers Network has reached many significant milestones. Chief among them is its vibrant membership portfolio, which has over 650 locations to its name – a figure that keeps on rising.
One of the Network’s most exciting areas of development is the Middle East. It’s a vast location that holds enormous opportunities for business entrepreneurs, yet it’s also one of the most difficult regions to navigate. The area is under-represented in terms of flexible workspace venues, with very few business centres and independent operators in the region.
ABCN has been working to make a difference by increasing the business centre presence in the Middle East, and to establish a support network for small and medium-sized businesses across the wider RMEA region (Russia, Middle East and Africa).
Spearheading the campaign is Sherif Kamel (pictured below left), President of Alliance Business Centers for RMEA – a dedicated industry advocate and business investor who is focused on growing the Alliance brand across the RMEA region.
“There is a tremendous opportunity awaiting entrepreneurs and business owners who are committed to growing their businesses in the rapidly expanding RMEA region,” said Sherif.
“We, at ABCN, have identified a niche market for professional serviced offices supporting various associations ranging from one-man bands to corporate household names.”
To help business owners get off the ground, Alliance centres in the Middle East offer company formation assistance and local connections, in addition to serviced offices and on-site management.
With business centres in the iconic Dubai Silicon Oasis (pictured top), situated within a free trade zone, and the Dubai Business Village, Sherif and the team are now building on their success by launching more new locations throughout the coming year.
“We are expanding our business centers to Qatar, Bahrain, KSA and Russia to name a few. ABCN will also soon be running in Egypt, Kuwait and part of Africa before the end of 2015,” added Sherif. “We look forward to continuing our expansion throughout the region.”
Frank Cottle, Chairman of the Alliance Business Centers Network, is delighted with the Network’s success in the region.
“It is a great pleasure to work with Sherif and his excellent team. He has the vision, the commitment, and a wealth of knowledge to take the brand forwards. His dedication means we can expand our support and offer the best quality workspace to businesses large and small right across the region.”
Frank added: “My congratulations to Sherif and the team on their success to date. I look forward to working with the team as we continue our exciting journey across the RMEA region.”
With over 650 locations to its name, the Alliance Business Centers Network has carved a reputation for business support and guidance on the international stage – not just for members, but for business owners too.
