A recent survey by Forbes magazine found London to be the number one city for business. It is one of the biggest and most affluent cities in the world and has great transport links.
During the survey, Forbes Magazine looked at a number of factors, one of which was the amount of foreign investment. This is an important factor as it shows that people are choosing to invest their money in London rather than other cities across the world as they see it as a better investment. They also looked at the number of headquarters per capita and London came out on top being home to 68 companies on Forbes Global 2000 list.
Forbes Magazine looked at how many business niches there are as this a good indication of how stable the economy is and it also indicates the number of people that want to invest. London performed well in this category too and was top in Europe for technology start-ups. According to the Genome project, there are 3000 tech companies in London. Google has a large presence in London, with its second biggest office there. Only Silicon Valley is bigger.
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.”
Tony Steedman from W12 Conferences, a great venue for a conference, said: “It makes sense to hold a conference in a city ranked number one for business. London has great transport links and is accessible by road, train and air. London is the perfect place to hold a conference so it is no surprise that it is very popular with businesses.”
Mr. Steedman went on to say “W12 Conferences is based in West London, close to White City. It has modern, bright and airy rooms with a good look and feel. They are also equipped with great audio visual equipment.”
