The centre of the universe?  We like to think so! It’s certainly where connections are made, ideas gather pace and boundaries are surpassed.

Axis is our self-contained conference and exhibitions centre. Suitable for delegations of up to 200 people, depending on layout, it is available to organisations located both within and outside of the Science Park. Conveniently positioned close to the entrance to the Science Park, just minutes from the M27 and M3, it is complete with flexible conference rooms, exhibition space, cloakroom, WCs and kitchen facilities.

Technology-enabled, it is equipped with programmable lighting, high bandwidth hard-wired and WiFi internet access, built-in projectors and screens and a wireless ClickShare system enabling delegates to share materials quickly and easily. Visitor parking is provided and catering can be arranged according to requirements. Accommodation is also available at the adjacent Chilworth Manor Hotel for travelling visitors.
