With the launch of the Test Valley Business Awards 2019 rapidly approaching, taking place just next month, the venue has this week been officially announced as the University of Southampton Science Park’s exciting new conference centre, Axis.

Seeing up to 100 local business representatives gather together for informal networking and to learn more about the Awards programme for 2019, the launch will also provide the Science Park with an opportunity to showcase their newest facilities.

Axis, Southampton Science Park’s conference and events suite, provides an inspirational space to host large scale meetings, workshops and exhibitions. Conveniently positioned close to the entrance to the Science Park – just minutes from the M27 and M3 – it is suitable for delegations of up to 200 people depending on layout.

Offering flexible room sizes and configurations; complete with a reception/breakout area, cloakroom, WCs, kitchen facilities and free visitor parking, Axis is the ideal venue in which to welcome the Test Valley Business Awards’ milestone 15th year of celebrating local business excellence.

Peter Birkett, CEO of Southampton Science Park said:

“It is a great pleasure to be able to invite our colleagues at the Test Valley Business Awards, and businesses from across the region, to Southampton Science Park for the launch of the Test Valley Business Awards for the first time.

This has been made possible as a result of our newly opened conference and events centre, Axis. We’re very proud of this new facility, which extends the benefits that the Science Park already offers, with a welcoming environment, excellent location and transport links, first class catering and the support of an experienced and dedicated Conferencing Manager.

We very much look forward to welcoming the Test Valley business community to Southampton Science Park and Axis on 15th March.”

Places for the Test Valley Business Awards 2019 launch are free but limited and therefore prior booking is essential for individuals wishing to attend this year’s launch. To book, please visit: https://tvba2019launch.eventbrite.co.uk or see www.tvbawards.org.uk for more information.

The launch event marks the start of this year’s entry process, open to entries from businesses of any size operating across the Test Valley.

Entering its 15th year, the Test Valley Business Awards – run by a steering group of volunteers – has become a well-established platform to champion business excellence. It is a great way of shining a light particularly on the many new and small businesses in the region, all doing interesting and valuable work, but often out of sight.
