Businesses increasingly looking for flexibility in order to save money and minimize risk
Long Beach, CA – (May 21, 2012) – Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, is expanding its presence in Southern California and today announced the opening of its first full service business center in Long Beach located at 111 West Ocean Boulevard as area businesses look to improve how they work.
