The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2006-07-21T19:36:00Z Upgrade to Business Class 2006-07-21T19:36:00Z upgrade-to-business-class For businesses who operate between Sydney and Melbourne, or for those professionals requiring suitable facilities without the confines of a serviced office, Bureaux offers a better class of business solution. Instead of hurried hotel lobby meetings, or cluttered caf tables, you can now upgrade to Bureauxs membership-based business lounges. Providing centrally located sites where, for one affordable annual fee, you can hold boardroom meetings, present to clients, and even finish your own work in the library. The travelling professional is well catered for, with sites in Sydney and Melbourne, and Brisbane due in early 2007. Will Flesher joined Bureaux Sydney after leaving a large consultancy firm to work with a start-up eTraining venture. He says Its a perfect solution for me, not just to have client meetings, but to be able to nip in and check emails, access the internet and grab a bite to eat. My partners are in Melbourne, so I use Bureaux down there too. The key to Bureauxs success is that it gives companies of all sizes an opportunity to access the right space at the right time. Whats more, Bureaux have spared no expense in creating impressive locations, with fine art adorning the walls and expansive lounges for business networking and more relaxed meetings. No matter how flexible serviced offices try to be, they do not offer a true on demand service that enables businesses to utilise their facilities as and when they need them, says Bureauxs Managing Director, Ian Trevallion. He continues, Bureaux is membership-based, which means there is no fixed tenancy. Our members simply use Bureaux when it suits them. And because our sites combine state-of-the-art facilities with luxurious surroundings, it creates a fantastic environment in which to do business. Bureaux recently announced a strategic alliance with American Express Small Business Services, which Mr. Trevallion described as a great alignment between two companies servicing the business community. Bureaux is also developing a franchise opportunity, so look out for a Bureaux business lounge in a city near you. American Express forms Strategic Relationship with Bureaux 2006-06-23T13:41:00Z american-express-forms-strategic-relationship-with-bureaux American Express Small Business Services and Bureaux Business Lounges, recently announced a strategic relationship that provides American Express Business Cardmembers with access to Bureauxs high quality meeting facilities in Sydney and Melbourne. Bureaux takes the concept of a business lounge to a new level. The elegant CBD business venues offer membership-based facilities tailored to the needs of business professionals. Facilities include conference rooms, custom-built meeting rooms and individual workstations as well as luxury lounge rooms, a reference library, wireless Internet access, gourmet caf and showers. American Express Business Cardmembers are entitled to up to three free visits to Bureaux annually together with significant discounts on annual membership and additional Bureaux services. We created the American Express Business Card as a card payment solution specifically tailored to small business operators, rather than simply rebadge a consumer card product. As a result, we constantly seek to offer cardmember benefits and rewards that are truly relevant to running a business. Bureaux provides our small business clients with a stylish city-based venue to conduct meetings and work productively away from their office, said Rajarshi Ray, Head of American Express Small Business Services in Australia. New Bureaux Site Opens in Melbourne Following the success of Bureauxs Sydney site on York Street, the announcement coincides with the official opening of Bureauxs new Melbourne CBD facilities last week on Lonsdale Street. Another site is planned for Brisbane early in 2007. Ian Trevallion, Managing Director of Bureaux said that the mobile nature of modern business had created a need for business facilities that were available on demand. It is often difficult for business people to find suitable spaces to conduct their business when they are away from their office whether they are visiting from outside Sydney or Melbourne, or just travelling in from the suburbs. Bureaux provides a comfortable, private and secure alternative to public areas, cafes and hotel lobbies, explained Mr. Trevallion. The Melbourne launch is very exciting for us, it is the start of an ambitious expansion programme that will mean more sites for our members and, ultimately, more value. Our success to date means there is a high demand for our service, and we are happy to be in partnership with American Express as we continue to grow, said Mr. Trevallion. A better place to do business 2006-03-01T21:17:00Z a-better-place-to-do-business Heres a common problem; you have people to see and business to do, but meeting in the heart of the city offers few locations that provide a suitable environment. In an age of true business mobility, the use of public areas, cafes and hotel lobbies are often the only option for offsite meetings and the travelling professional. Bureaux provides an alternative. Bureaux is a stylish CBD business venue that offers conference facilities, superior meeting rooms and individual work stations. What makes the concept unique are the luxury lounge rooms, reference library and gourmet caf; all of which are available on demand and included in an affordable annual membership fee. Bureaux is an opportunity to present your business in the right way and enjoy state-of-the-art facilities. From relaxation rooms to wireless Internet access, Bureaux creates a personalised and professional environment that is both affordable and impressive. Put simply, its a better place to do business. Bureaux Sydney is at 50 York Street and launching in Melbourne in March. Visit www.bureaux.net.au for a free trial offer.
