Go Business Open Resources for Local Business

Coworking & Office Spaces, Events, Advice, Funding & Resources

Championing & supporting local businesses

For hosting and corporate hospitality at Cranbrook & Flimwell Park. If the nature of your business means you meet clients on an ad hoc basis, but perhaps not frequently enough to justify renting your own office space, then look no further. For casual one-to-ones, you can meet up in the Buzz Lounges, or for more privacy, simply hire the sound-proof Buzz Booths for as long as required. For larger meetings, workshops and presentations, you can pre-book our Meeting Zones, complete with digital screen and Fire Stick for mobile-to-screen live-streaming, an eight-seater conference table, and a private sideboard for serving food and refreshments.

JOIN THE BUZZ PACK
BUSINESS COMMUNITY

Buy a 6 month or annual Buzz Pack to make the most of the business resources at The Hive. Book hot desks in the Biz Studio and enjoy a private and dedicated internet account with a unique login to ensure maximum security. Book either the Meeting Zone and Buzz Booth – free for one hour. Promote your business in our information  area, on The Hive website & social media.

BUZZ PACKERS CAN BULK HIRE HOT DESKS

Buzz Packers can book coworking bench hot desk spaces on bulk discounted rates, for half-day sessions (morning 8.00am-12pm and afternoon 1.00pm-5.00pm) and full day visits (8.00am-5.00pm). The more you book the cheaper they get.

Parent-friendly sessions between school drop-offs & pick-ups also available.

New contactless phone charging & sterilising units on desks.
