We are a country with a long history of innovation and entrepreneurship, a world centre for trade and one of the top manufacturers in the world. It will come as no surprise then that the UK has consistently attracted more foreign investments with more EMEA headquarter business operations than any other location in Europe. We have the largest industries in Europe for life sciences, automotives, aerospace, ICT and the creative industries. And the universities are some of the most distinguished academic institutions in the world.
This is a country fuelled by inspirational dynamism and energy, as channelled by pioneers across the spectrum of industries – and centuries – including Sir Isaac Newton, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Charles Darwin, Alan Turing, Sir Richard Branson, Stephen Hawking and Rosalind Franklin.
Destinations across England can cater for key specialist industries with specific venues and facilities.
