South West Communications Group has given its full backing to a video produced for Exeter City Council that encourages businesses to relocate to the regional capital.
The video stars business owners and managers from the city including celebrated chef Michael Caines who says: “Relocating a business is like cooking a good meal; you have to have the right and best ingredients.”
In a bid to attract businesses to the city, the video highlights Exeter’s dynamic growth programme, which includes the construction of 20,000 new homes, the Cranbrook Estate, Exeter Science Park, and SkyPark, plus the creation of 20,000 new jobs.
It also discusses the two million visitors the city attracts each year, as well as its sports facilities including Exeter City Football Club, based at St James Park, and Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club at Sandy Park, one of the selected venues for the Rugby World Cup in 2015.
The video features South West Communications Group’s chairman and chief executive Tony Rowe in his other lead role at Exeter Chiefs.
Harry Langley, managing director of South West Communications Group, said: “As a business that has been instrumental in the relocation of many businesses to Exeter, including the Met Office’s move from Bracknell, we wholeheartedly welcome this initiative.
“We moved into the city 28 years ago and we would not swap our location for anything. Exeter is already a thriving city with a healthy growth programme already underway. I commend Exeter City Council for employing a variety of initiatives to attract yet more businesses to the city and wish them every success with its relocation video.”
South West Communications Group is a member of the Exeter Initiative for Science and Technology has supported Exeter City Council with this initiative.
