Exlusive to IoD members and guests

Bristol and Bath Science Park

The IoD South West office and member facilities have moved to the Bristol and Bath Science Park (BBSP) at Emersons Green on the Bristol ring road. This brand-new development with stunning modern facilities has won a number of awards for sustainability and the quality of its working environment.

BBSP’s strong ideas and innovation culture has already attracted several high-profile tenants and ministerial visits, as well as having the three local universities – Bristol, Bath and West of England – as partner.  The Science Park’s out-of-town location has the benefit of easy access for members in the wider region (particularly those from Bath, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire) and has ample free parking.

And with immediate effect IoD members can enjoy unlimited access to the Science Park atrium and café for informal meetings and working, access to the balcony meeting areas, free WiFi and a 15 per cent discount on meeting room hire.
