The business center in Virginia, Reston is strategically located just 18 miles west of the capital, Washington, DC, and seven miles east of Dulles International Airport. Reston has transformed to become a home to a wealth of enterprises. At least two of these have annual turnover figures of more than $1 billion and around 800 fit within the $1million to $2.5 million boundaries. Reston has enjoyed a huge expansion in recent times, taking full advantage of its mid-Atlantic seaboard location. Now it is home to one of the largest clusters of technology firms on the planet. With these come allied services, workers and skills, alongside state-of-the-art infrastructure technology. A regional market of more than six million people, more than the population of some European countries, offers huge potential opportunities and there is help on hand for overseas companies contemplating relocating to the area. A thriving Chamber of Commerce runs events and lobbies for companies keen to see their own business develop.
