Twickenham Stadium has launched a new shared working space and business hub as part of plans to further enhance the venue’s status as a multi-purpose facility.

The space, which will be available for local businesses and key account partners, has been created in partnership with HUB XV, which will operate the space as part of a national network of stadium-based work spaces.

HUB XV offers a community-based membership model aimed at local and regional businesses that are seeking flexible, socially distanced working spaces at a cost-effective price. Businesses are able to explore flexible working practices or make their traditional office spaces redundant following COVID-19.

Nils Braude, managing director at Twickenham Experience Ltd, said: “The launch of HUB XV is an important part of our growth strategy and allows us to create new connections with the local business community and continue to strengthen existing connections across our hospitality, conference and events businesses.

“The team at HUB XV share our commitment to world-class hospitality, and we’re looking forward to offering our new members the very best working space, one of the finest office views you can get, and the chance to work out of an international icon.”

Twickenham, which serves as the home of England’s rugby union team, is aligning the launch of HUB XV with its meetings and events business, with members to receive 10% discounts on all conference and event bookings.

The space will also be offered as part of Twickenham’s preferential partnership programme with key agency contacts, and as an incentive for companies putting multiple events into the stadium. Members will also receive access to regular networking events hosted by sports legends, complimentary parking, speciality hot drinks, Wi-Fi, printing services and discounts on smaller meeting rooms.

The new coworking space will be based within Twickenham’s premium East Wing, which includes a range of casual seating options, natural daylight and a bar serving complimentary hot drinks.
