According to the Heathrow Express Business Travel Insights Report London has been named the most popular business travel location.

Around 85 percent of German, British and US business travellers have made the trip to London with the majority of them being from the finance sector. Also around 47 percent of the respondents have visited the capital for a conference.

The study shows that British business travellers make the most trips to London rather than the US and German business travellers and they all take an average of more than two domestic and more than three international journeys in the past year. The survey showed that conferences were the main reasons for travel, with 39% listing this as the purpose.

The biggest sector that has travelled to London over the past five years has been finance followed by lawyers and the energy sector, however over the past year this has changed with business travellers from the energy sector topping the table followed by finance, legal, pharmaceutical and manufacturing sectors.
