With the Elizabeth Line (formerly Crossrail) on its way, and major redevelopment of the town-centre, Reading is set for an exciting five years or more of growth. It is home to many fast-growing companies in sectors from technology to professional services and is ranked as the most successful economic city in the UK.
Reading comes top, or near the top, in numerous surveys – based on economic and lifestyle factors. It regularly outperforms other business centres across the country, with employment growth and GDP well above the average.
Reading boasts the highest density of digital and tech companies in the UK and now with pure-fibre digital infrastructure to support business growth, Reading will undoubtedly become one of the primary business hubs in the UK. The digital tech business turnover in Reading was £13.6 billion (in 2017) - with more than 58,000 tech centre jobs in the town.
Reading has attributes that many cities would envy; a diverse and established business and retail community, a skilled workforce, a high performing university and schools plus a vibrant cultural scene.
The area has a great mix of places to stay. From the luxurious 15th century Mercure Hotel, said to be the oldest building in Reading; to the functional business options of The Ibis and The Premier Suites.
