Tasawar Ulhaq, CEO, KIKLABB, said, "The legendary QE2 makes for an extraordinary location for our flagship facility in Dubai. The way we work is evolving and so are the needs of the market. With the ability to issue trade licenses and offer intelligent workspaces, KIKLABB is designed to transform the working experience. Our outstanding facilities driven by technology, offer an array of financial and strategic benefits, increasing efficiency and productivity. The first step of setting up a business is getting a trade license and as a government-owned entity, at KIKLABB we issue both Dubai Free Zone and on-shore DED licenses."

With the flexible working trend gaining momentum, demand for flexible workspaces is on the rise in Dubai. According to Colliers' data, Dubai currently has over 650,000 square feet of flexible and co-working space spread over 53 locations. The supply of co-working centres in the city, from both new market entrants and existing operators, will continue to increase with minimum 320,000 to 530,000 sq ft of space expected to be dedicated toward this sector by the end of 2020. Projections for the region forecast that flexible workspaces will constitute more than 60 per cent of the total office demand in GCC by 2025.
