Being a city that was built with modern people and businesses in mind, Milton Keynes is excellently equipped for events and business travel, whether it’s the superb travel links by road and rail, or the modern infrastructure, making getting around a breeze, with some of the lowest commuting times in Europe.
When it comes to growth and business in the UK there’s a reason that Milton Keynes is consistently at the top of economic benchmarking surveys. In 2015, for example, Milton Keynes came out as having the highest job growth in the UK for that past decade, beating big names like London, Oxford, and Cambridge.
The city’s ‘Boom Town’ growth hasn’t gone unnoticed, with companies such as Suzuki, Domino’s Pizza, Mercedes-Benz, Santander, and Volkswagen Group, moving their UK headquarters to Milton Keynes, not forgetting the Red Bull Formula 1 team. These big companies aren’t alone either, 71.5% of businesses in Milton Keynes started up here. This combination of impressive global pedigree and innovative start-up culture make Milton Keynes an exciting place for any business.
Out of the office Milton Keynes has a lot of interesting and unique options for winding down. There’s an indoor real-snow ski slope at Snozone, indoor sky diving at iFly, and even more team building, including axe throwing and off-road 4x4 driving, at Experience The Country.
