Happy First Birthday for The Regent Offices and Business Centre, Wrexham

The state-of-the-art and stylish offices and conference centre, The Regent, celebrated its first birthday this week.

The special  networking event to mark the occasion was held by the West Cheshire and North Wales  Chamber of Commerce at The Regent, 67 Regent Street, Wrexham.

As someone who has carefully followed the emergence of The Regent from a dilapidated, derelict and smelly unloved building in the heart of Wrexham to the stylish, light and airy, state-of-the-art, welcoming and much loved office and conference centre that it is today, I was pleased and proud to be at the birthday party on Wednesday. I reflected on the transformation and the road which Joanna has travelled to reach her goal.

Of course you could say that I am biased - I am Joanna's mother after all - but no-one can deny that it took Joanna's vision, creativity and tenacity to design the building layout, manage, source and procure every item  - from the kettles, wall art, colourful and modern  toilets cubicles, decor, and furniture, to digital facilities; the list goes on - and bring to fruition, this wonderful 'Space to Thrive' as Joanna has termed it.
In addition, the wonderful Victorian features have been lovingly restored, such as the leaded lights in the vestibule entrance and the tiled hallway, which marry well with the modern features.
Lets take a look now at

Last August, the Mayor of Wrexham opened the building. In the last year the centre has played host to a variety of events with the meeting rooms - the Wilberforce and Gladstone suites -  laid out individually or opened up as one room to suit the event's individual needs.
