London is one of the biggest and most affluent cities in the world and according to Forbes Magazine who carried out a recent survey, the number one city for business.
Forbes Magazine looked at a number of factors. A key factor was the amount of foreign investment and the number of headquarters per capita and London came out on top being home to 68 companies on Forbes Global 2000 list. It also looked at how many business niches there were and again, London performed well and was top in Europe for technology start-ups. According to the Genome project, there are 3000 tech companies in London. What is more is that Google has a large presence in London, with its second biggest office there, smaller only to Google’s office in Silicon Valley.
Joel Kotkin, for Forbes Magazine, said that London was “a preferred domicile for the global rich, London is not only the historic capital of the English language, which contributes to its status as a powerful media hub and major advertising center, but it’s also the birthplace of the cultural, legal and business practices that define global capitalism.”
Given it has been ranked number one for business and has good transport links as well as a number of terrific venues that can be hired on an ad hoc basis, London is the perfect place to hold a conference. A great venue for a conference is one that meets all of the organisers needs and in London, they won’t be short of options.
Tony Steedman from W12 Conferences, said: “London is the perfect place to hold a conference and is very popular with both local and international businesses alike. W12 Conferences is based in West London, close East Acton tube, and is very easy to get to. Our rooms are modern, bright and airy with a good look and feel. They are also equipped with great audio visual equipment.”
