About The Venue

Discovery Park is one of the largest business parks in Europe, with a specialist focus on science and technology for emerging and established companies. The site has a track record for drug discovery stretching back to the 1950’s and continues to lead the way in R&D from the search for new antibiotics to pioneering research across the life sciences; from developing new therapeutics and diagnostics to unlocking the full potential of immunotherapy and immuno-oncology.

Situated in Kent on the south coast of England, Discovery Park is approximately 80 miles from London and benefits from a strong network of transportation links.This includes high speed train services into London, with the new Parkway railway station set to bring St Pancras International within an hour of this iconic site for science discovery.
