London, where the streets are paved with gold.
London is aglow with fantastic culture and leisure and this isn’t limited to one area either, it is widespread across the capital. London is a truly international city which is complimented with a fantastic mix of cultures and nationalities.
Why exhibit there
According to a recent global study, London is the world’s leading centre of global finance pipping New York into second place. And as a centre for international business, London offers a multitude of opportunities to network and make lucrative business connections.
Fly into any of London’s five airports and you’ll be in the centre of town very quickly.
London is renowned for its fantastic and quick transport system that is among the very best in the world. The underground is quick and connects the whole of the city, so you if you have a meeting in another part of town you can get to another part relatively quickly.
As well as this there are plenty of buses and overground trains including the DLR.
