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.
Geographically Milton Keynes is ideal for events, especially events with people travelling from all over to get to them. We are conveniently located halfway between London and Birmingham, with Cambridge, Oxford, and Leicester all the same distance away too, which means over 18 million people live within just one hour of MK.
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.
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 had the highest job growth in the country, 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, all moving their UK headquarters to Milton Keynes, not forgetting the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team.
