Business Advantage


  • Useful Contacts

    London’s unique position as a world-class city attracts business visitors from all corners of the globe.  Its long-standing reputation as a place to succeed in business, its welcoming approach to international visitors and the proliferation of financial services companies and management expertise is unrivalled elsewhere in the world.

    The vibrancy of the London life sciences cluster is reflected in the activities of  various networking groups which provide regular opportunities to make new contacts via events, conferences and other meetings:
