Objective

A special morning seminar, hosted by Bidwells and Creative Places, was held to explore the trends in the Life Science sector and how this could impact on future property developments and requirements within the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Cambridge, Oxford and London. Bidwells is a consultant to the science and technology sector and currently advises on over 15 million square feet of research and development real estate within the Golden Triangle. Agency Venues and Events was selected as the partner for the event.

Solution

The breakfast event was attended by a wide range of organisations, including developers, investors, science companies, academics and local authorities. An audience of around 100 heard how global pharmaceutical sales are projected to rise to a staggering $1.4 trillion (£1.1 trillion) by 2019. In the UK, the Life Science sector has annual turnover in excess of £60 billion. Speakers at the event included Doug Cuff, from BioMed Realty, which owns Granta Park, Dr Eulian Roberts, Imperial College ThinkSpace, Jonathan Burroughs, Creative Places and Saul Western from the Investment team at Bidwells.

Verdict

Julie Bushell, Bidwells' communications director, said: "Venues and Events International found this beautiful livery building for us. It was the perfect setting for a fascinating insight into research and development real-estate. As one of our speakers said, Brexit has made it even more imperative that the UK takes full advantage of industries which offer the very best innovation and intellectual property development. Life Science is a critical sector in this regard so it was an event that was bound to attract a lot of interest. Venues and Events International were a great support throughout the planning and ensured we had a seminar that met the demand."
