Rupert Cox, Chief Executive of Into Somerset, comments, “We are very excited about the launch of the new Into Somerset marketing campaign, which will shine a light on some of the most exciting elements of doing business in Somerset. Through this campaign we will highlight the ‘connectedness’
“We are fortunate to be so well connected in Somerset, with excellent road and rail links, a dynamic and supportive business network, and a forthcoming multi-million pound government investment in Somerset’s superfast broadband, which will help to ensure that businesses within the county can become even more competitive, adding to the county’s already impressive £9billion economy.”
