A new business hub and co-working space has opened at Preston Docks.


Shout Network which helps local businesses raise awareness of their brand, welcomed around 300 guests to the launch of Shout Connect earlier this month.

The 8,000sq ft business hub opened its doors to attendees from various business sectors to showcase the new co-working space, media suite, expo room, meeting rooms and American diner. Guests were invited to tour the site, network and find out more about the services on offer.

Partners of Shout Network greeted visitors from their stands in the conference hall. To commemorate the launch, the Shout Connect flag was raised outside the premises in Navigation Way.

This followed a speech from Martin Blunt of UCLan, Shout Network’s first ever partner, and Rachel Gill of Aspect Mortgages, Shout Network’s longest serving member.

Shout Connect offers day passes and memberships for co-working space and meeting rooms. Users have access to a range of facilities including a media suite and the American diner which is a social space with drink and snack machines.

The walls are adorned with photos of Shout Network members past and present, and the booth seating and diner tables offer a quirky and relaxed networking opportunity.
