A Dundalk man has spoken about his reasons for registering to use a hot desk at the Creative Spark Downtown remote working hub.
Conor Marron from Haggardstown is the Managing Director for Irish Shipping & Transport Ltd.
“Our main office is in Dublin but we have three or four sales reps in the area and when we heard about the Downtown hub we were very interested in the project,” said Conor.
“We decided to take a desk for the year because it offers great convenience. I just think it’s great; it’s a fantastic project.
Conor added: “It’s a great way to promote the town and for us to have a presence in the town. It’s a good way to have a little foothold here.
“It means our sales reps can come and do their calls at a desk, which is very useful. It’s also a place to meet people.
“It gives us more flexibility. I think the way the Downtown hub has been promoted has been very good.”
He continued: “It has been very easy to get involved. I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished hub and we will start using the desk as soon as it’s available.”
According to Creative Spark Downtown manager Ciara Breen, there will be 42 hot desks available in the former Cumiskey music and nursery store, at 42-43 Clanbrassil Street.
Creative Spark Downtown will be open to everyone who wants a co-working space, no matter what sector they are working in.
The official opening of Creative Spark Downtown is likely to take place at the end of May. If anyone would like to register their interest in taking on a hot desk or using the space for work send an email to email@example.com
