2019 SVBA: Focus on the Business Space of the Year Award

What is the Business Space of the Year Award?

The SVBA Business Space of the Year Award aims to celebrate the high quality commercial space available throughout South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse.

Businesses need great space to develop. Whether it’s serviced offices, a new business park or a forward-thinking office development, clever work space can provide the environment to inspire innovation, close business deals, or attract skilled workers.

Who should apply?

The Business Space of the Year Award is open to business parks, serviced offices and individual businesses, celebrating the high-quality workspace available across South and Vale. If you are a business park manager, developer, or perhaps if your company has recently invested in a new bespoke workspace, consider applying.

You can apply here, entries close on 18 January 2018.

If you’re interested in business space in Vale of White Horse, you may want to attend our annual Business Breakfast, that for 2019 is Business Space themed. Tickets are available here.
