Despite the remote working boom during the pandemic, UAE has just 176 co-working spaces, which amounts to 1.74 per 100,000 workers. After the pandemic, hotels in the Middle East have turned lobbies into spaces where digital nomads from across the globe can work, live and dine. In Saudi Arabia, the market for co-working spaces is expected to grow by 6% by 2027.

To address remote working demands, Dubai’s TECOM group has launched a co-working space in the city. The facility called D/Quarters is located at the heart of Dubai Media City and Dubai Internet City, home to global firms, startups, and budding entrepreneurs. Future game-changers and aspiring unicorns at D/Quarters will get support from a smart app and flexible event spaces.

Professionals at the co-working space will also have access to eateries and retail spaces within walking distance. But the real benefit will be the connections they make within the industry during networking sessions, insightful talks, and community events. A smart platform called axs will allow members to use more than 200 government and corporate services.

People working for firms abroad can also thrive at D/Quarter since it remains open 24 hours a day to provide global connectivity. Professionals will also have fixable payment schedules to manage their budgets better.

The TECOM group has been building sector-focused business districts for two decades, home to 7800 firms and 100,000 professionals. D/Quarters, which supports ambitious freelancers and established companies, comes in a line of TECOM’s offerings, including a freelancing community, GoFreelance. The company focuses on empowering the UAE government’s vision for innovation and development of the country as a knowledge economy.
