Top business figures from around Hampshire assembled at an event hosted by leading property consultants Vail Williams at Southampton's £15 million new museum, SeaCity.

The invited gathering caught up with old contacts and made new ones on Thursday, September 20 as they enjoyed drinks and canapés while taking in the sights of the museum that celebrates the city's historic links with the sea and ocean liner Titanic.

Almost 70 people attended, representing an array of key regional sectors. They listened to a speech by Vail Williams partner Martin Tice in which he outlined the company's strong regional ties.

Martin highlighted Vail Williams' unique position as the only agent in the region with offices in both Portsmouth and Southampton, and also the strength of its teams' ability to offer integrated services through their diverse disciplines and skills.

He said the company was successfully weathering the recession and building strong foundations for future growth.

Martin Tice also said: "In the current challenging market conditions our people are focused on doing the right things, proactively collaborating and supporting one another to get the best results for their clients and, most importantly, showing high energy and enjoying the challenge in the process.

"Our goal is to change the way businesses think about Vail Williams by differentiating client relationships, delivering exceptional service and adding true value."
