SINGAPORE-based JustCo, Southeast Asia's largest provider of creative co-working spaces, joined hands with its strategic partner Sansiri, in celebrating the opening of the first JustCo co-working space in Thailand, Bangkok's CBD, at AIA Sathorn Tower.
Working individuals, business travellers and businesses of all sizes in Thailand can now enjoy redefined collaborative working, connected, vibrant and dynamic communities offered by JustCo in open, conducive and creative work spaces.
JustCo's presence in Bangkok marks the first milestone in terms of Sansiri pursuing its Everyday Visionaries growth chapter to shape next-generation living.
JustCo founder and chief executive officer Kong Wan Sing, said, "Over the recent years, the co-working space business around the world has seen a significant growth. Currently, JustCo is Southeast Asia's largest and most successful premium provider of co-working spaces. What sets us apart from other co-working spaces is our large community where members can tap into to seek new connections and explore new business opportunities.
“We are so delighted to announce our first JustCo centre in Thailand. Our partnership with key players in Thailand’s real estate sector like Sansiri is instrumental in helping pave the way for our accelerated growth in Thailand and Asia. Sansiri has in-depth expertise and experience in Asian markets and it has also helped to connect JustCo to a large number of Sansiri residents. Thailand is one of the key business hubs in the region and its favourable geographical location makes the country a key market for JustCo, as well as a gateway to our regional expansion across Southeast Asia markets which we also plan to launch the second branch here at Capital Tower, All Seasons Place in July 2018."
Sansiri Public Company Limited chief executive officer Apichart Chutrakul, said, "JustCo is our first accomplishment in the new chapter of growth - Everyday Visionaries – which we set forth in 2017 by investing in six leading global technology and lifestyle businesses. The arrival of JustCo is in time to capture the potential growth of the co-working space phenomenon in Thailand. The partnership also works towards the sharing of resources, know-how, technology and customer base.
“This also benefits Sansiri's customers from the unique privileged access to JustCo's co-working with a special promotion for Sansiri residents - free access until the end of 2018 and a special 20% discount on membership packages from January 2019 onwards."
Spreading over two storeys with a total area of 3,200 square meters, JustCo at AIA Sathorn Tower boasts vibrant interiors along with playful elements. Services and amenities in JustCo include hot-desking areas, quiet pods designed for personal space, meeting studios, event spaces, as well as an in-house cafe, and a football and golf corner.
In 3Q18, JustCo will also launch its community platform called J App which is available on its website and on smartphone. J App allows members 24/7 access to a platform where they can pre-book meeting rooms globally at any location, share ideas with other members, and search for potential business opportunities among the wide network of ever-growing 12,000 high-quality members.
