Catch up on Discovery Park’s Festive Mix ‘n’ Meet networking event

Posted on 09/12/16

Thanks to everyone who made it along to our Festive Mix ‘n’ Meet. It was lovely to see so many of our tenants there – the perfect way to round off a Tuesday before Christmas.

For those of you not able to make it this networking event – as ever – began with updates from the site team – including Maddy Absolon, who is the first point of contact for the 150 plus businesses located here.

Before everyone attending tucked into the mince pies there were updates from Paul Boother from Jaytee – one of Kent’s leading bio-science companies, the Hornby team and James Marrett, who spoke about the services Ideal 4 U Insurance has to offer.

Claire Elmore also talked about the Your Sim Pal scheme, launched this autumn by C4CMobile, explaining how businesses across the site can sign up to help people living with cancer stay connected.

Site updates includes an introduction to new Start Up Zone arrivals Ideal4U Marketing and F6S plus new office tenants SCI Innovative Building Control Systems, Gemini Fundraising, and MP Associates – all setting up home in the general business hub, Innovation House.

There was also good news shared on the recent expansions for BSPG Laboratories Ltd, Scitegrity and IntensiChem. We hope to share more on their Discovery Park stories in the coming weeks.

The event was rounded off with reminders of events taking place on site in the run up to Christmas including the Tenant Christmas Lunch on Thursday, 15 December and the opening of the Discovery Park Christmas Shop – featuring goodies from the Hot Craze team and Hornby - on Monday. If you haven’t done your shopping yet, look no further!

That’s it from the DP team until the New Year, with the next Coffee and Connect networking event taking place from 8.30am on 2 February.

Thanks again to all who attended, and to those who didn’t, we hope to see you next time.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
