The Dubai Economy’s Business Registration and Licensing (BRL) sector has come together with Hotdesk, an online platform for workspaces to help Department of Economic Development (DED) Trader License holders find and book flexible office spaces.

The partnership comes under the framework for leveraging the cooperation between public and private sectors to support the youth who play significant roles in the expansion of the local economy and to accelerate the global shift towards the concept of remote working.

Under the partnership, the Hotdesk team will offer DED Trader license holders with marketing, administrative and organizational support. The license holder will further get the eligibility to avail exclusive discounts off all bookings with Hotdesk.

“The partnership with Hotdesk will actively contribute to supporting Dubai’s enterprises and freelancers by offering efficient co-working spaces. It will contribute to Dubai’s vision to build a diversified and flexible economy driven by skilled Emirati talent and to strengthen Dubai’s position as a global center for innovation and youth initiatives,” said Ahmad Alshaer, Senior Manager, Development & Follow UP division in the BRL sector.

“The collaboration with Dubai Economy will play an integral role in supporting innovative projects and will help us revolutionize the remote working experience and achieve our goal of enabling aspiring individuals to get things done effortlessly and easily”, Mohamed Khaled, CEO of Hotdesk said.
