London: A Gateway to the World. A Second Home at the Centre of World Affairs.

The 17th and 21st Centuries meet. St. Pauls Cathedral and Millenium Bridge.

London is unquestionably one of the Worlds most exciting and dynamic capital cities. It is also one of the most international world capitals measured in terms of business, tourism and events, the number and diversity of foreign corporations, inward investment, financial services, diversity of race and links with other countries.

Yet London is less than 2,5 hours away. The Scandinavian Centre will provide an opportunity for companies to combine the benefits of an enhanced Scandinavian profile, in an environment which actively supports the individual organisation and affords access to all of the benefits which a location in London can offer.

"Scandinavia": a Universal Trademark.

Within an international context, the term "Scandinavian" stands for quality, sound business ethics and environmental friendliness. It also represents a tradition of innovation, a healthy lifestyle and a close affinity to the natural environment. The Scandinavian Centre will be a physical manifestation of these universally appreciated and respected values bringing together progressive Scandinavian organisations who can operate within an environment which is highly conducive to the promotion of their business.

The Region is widely regarded as a home market for many Scandinavian organisations. By enhancing their "Scandinavian" profile, companies will strenthen their individual profiles on the global marketplace.
