Exeter is Great for Business

Nellie PR has upped sticks and taken up residence in Exeter at The Innovation Centre, on the University of Exeter campus – high up in the hills overlooking the cathedral city.

Of course, Nottingham will be sadly missed, but we will still be popping up North and spending time with all our Midlands-based clients, friends and family.  But why the move to Exeter?

University of Exeter Campus

Love, the pull of the Devonshire scenery, the sea on our doorstep, and new business growth in the South West all had its part to play in the move southwards.  Exeter is a great place to do business, and our office at the Innovation Centre has more going for it than just a great view – and it is a great view.  The reasons are too numerous to mention, but as a starter, here are the:

Top Six Reasons why Exeter is our new business home:

Exeter is in the top 10 for business – according to the BBC and Experian, Exeter is in the top 10 in England for businesses that show high growth potential.  The perfect fit for us as we expand and grow our business.

The University of Exeter is The Sunday Times University of the Year and its campus with the Business School, £48 million Forum and even the fantastic Northcott theatre all within its campus grounds, means that we have plenty of places to entertain our clients, hold events, bump into and get chatting to the best business and academic minds.

Conferences and business events including TEDex, major business conferences, events, seminars and workshops taking place almost daily.  The facilities at the Innovation Centre include conference and meeting rooms, onsite catering and cafe.

Talent – we have some of the brightest student and graduate talent on our doorstep and have already taken advantage of this talent pool with third-year psychology student and intern, Luke Bristow and marketing graduate, Harriet Bowyer, joining the Nellie PR team.

In great company – the Innovation Centre is home to over 50 other businesses with a combined £20m plus turnover, and is the focal point for business in the region. The complex gained more than £10m investment to provide first class facilities and our successful neighbouring businesses include the likes of Crowdcube and Fantasy Shopper.  Exeter is the home of the Met Office, Thomson Reuters and Flybe.  Even the museum is award winning.

Transport – beaches, national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor, waterfront and quay all close by, great road transport links, two mainline train stations with fast trains to Bristol, Reading and London and other major UK cities.  We also have an international airport.

Our aim is to become the best PR agency in the South West, so picking Exeter and the Innovation Centre as our new home was more than a lucky find – it was a strategic must.  Location, location, location means that we have the most attractive environment for our business to grow, to attract the best talent and service the very best businesses.

Come visit, we’ll be happy to show you around.
