Avanta signs up for London First

Avanta, the serviced office company with a growing portfolio of business centres across the capital, has teamed up with London First to become a Principal Sponsor of the organization which campaigns to improve and promote London as a business location.

London First is a business membership group supported by 300 of the capital s leading businesses with the shared objective of improving and promoting London. The group s approach is to harness the vision, energy and skills of business leaders to develop solutions to London issues including transport, skills, governance, planning, sustainable development, housing and crime. The organisation strives to make the case for London, so the interests of London business are represented at national, regional and local levels.

The sponsorship is an extension of on-going support by Avanta of Think London, the foreign direct investment agency for London.

The serviced office specialists are supporting the group s initiative to encourage the growth and inward investment of Chinese business in the capital, by offering free office space to small start up companies looking to enter the UK market.

Chris Taylor, Avanta s Director of Marketing and Business Development, said: "Both Think London and London First play a hugely significant role in protecting and promoting the interests of London s business community. As one of the fastest growing providers of serviced offices in London, we feel it s important to give them our backing and we look forward to developing a long and mutually advantageous relationship with both organizations."

Avanta currently operates eight business centres in prime locations across London, offering highly flexible, unbranded office space. The offices are fitted with advanced and competitively priced business technology, tailor-made to meet the requirements of any company, whatever shape or size.

Avanta has recently announced the pending launch of a further two serviced offices in London, one in Regent Street in the heart of the West End, and the opening of their first business centre in the City, at Austin Friars. This brings their portfolio of business centres in London to ten.

The company has launched a virtual office service Avanta Virtual PA. Designed to offer businesses a complete package of office support but without the actual office space, Virtual PA can deliver a full range of business centre facilities to home workers, business start-ups, professionals on the move, or larger organisations seeking a market presence in London.
