Available to both resident and non-resident businesses, the new facility will provide an inspirational space to host large scale meetings, events and exhibitions with all the benefitsthat the Science Park already offers in terms of a welcoming environment, easy transport access, event and catering support.

The renovation of an existing building at 3 Venture Roadon the Science Park has begun to create the facility with local contractors selected to deliver the project, overseen by Amiri Interiors.

"I firmly believe that profitable growth and positive societal impacts derive from bringing peopleand their ideas together and giving them the space in which to thrive. We do this in many ways here, but we have long wished to provide an inspiring conference and exhibition facility which can enable this to happen at scale," said Peter Birkett, CEO of Southampton Science Park. "I hope that it will serve to engage, inspire and empower those who come here to the South's innovation centre of excellence."
