How EURO 2024 is shaking up the flex industry.

Euro 2024 is almost here, and while everyone’s gearing up for the big games, there’s another player ready to take the spotlight – the flex industry. You might be wondering, what do flexible workspaces and football have in common? Turns out, quite a bit!

Coworking spaces in Manchester, remote work, and hybrid office setups have exploded in popularity recently. Thanks to better tech and a shift in how we think about work – thanks, COVID-19 – more people are ditching the traditional office for more flexible options. This shift isn’t just about convenience; it’s about improving productivity, work-life balance, and cutting down on overhead costs.

Euro 2024: More Than Just Goals and Cheers

Euro 2024, hosted in Germany, is going to be massive. It’s not just about the England and Scotland matches; it’s a huge event that boosts tourism, hospitality, and media industries. With millions tuning in, either in person or online, there’s a big bump in travel and local business activities.

So, how does this tie into the flex industry? Here’s the lowdown:

  1. Pop-Up Workspaces: With a swarm of media folks, sponsors, and organisers going to the host cities, there’s a big need for temporary office spaces. Coworking spaces and flex offices are perfect for this, offering ready-to-use spots for short-term needs such as day passes and hot desks.
  2. Remote Work on the Go: As fans and pros travel for the games, staying connected to work is crucial. Companies offering strong remote work solutions will be in high demand, helping people work seamlessly from anywhere.
  3. Corporate Hangouts and Networking: Euro 2024 is also a prime networking event. Businesses will be looking for top-notch spaces for meetings and events. Flex spaces can provide these premium venues, catering to the crowd amongst a coworking community.
  4. Media Madness: With the heavy media coverage, journalists and broadcasters need temporary setups. Flexible workspaces can act as media hubs, equipped for live reporting and content creation.

Green Goals and Innovation

Euro 2024 and the flex industry also share a passion for sustainability and innovation. From building eco-friendly stadiums to energy-efficient offices, both sectors are pushing for greener practices. This partnership promotes a cultural shift towards sustainability, showing how big events and industries can work together to reduce their environmental footprint. Obviously you remember our previous blog, ‘What does the office of the future look like?’, where we touched on how we, as a business and collaborative workspace, are taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint and be a little more eco-friendly!

Wrapping It Up

As Euro 2024 kicks off, its impact is far-reaching, driving growth and innovation in the flex industry. This partnership between football and flexible work solutions highlights how major events can spur advancements across various sectors, paving the way for a more adaptable and resilient work environment.

So, whether you’re a business professional, a remote worker, or just a football fanatic, this blend of sports and work flexibility is set to offer a unique and transformative experience. The flex industry is ready to rise to the occasion, making sure we all get the best of both worlds – exciting football and seamless work flexibility.
