London is home to Fanshawe College and the University of Western Ontario, which contributes to the city's reputation as an international centre of higher education, scientific research and cultural activity. The city hosts a number of musical and artistic exhibits. London's festivals contribute to its tourism industry, but its economic activity is centerd on education, medical research, insurance, and information technology. London's university and hospitals are among its top ten employers. London lies at the junction of Highway 401 and 402, connecting it to Toronto, Windsor, and Sarnia. It also has an international airport, train and bus station.
London's economy is dominated by medical research, insurance, and information technology. The London Life Insurance Company was founded there, and General Dynamics Land Systems also builds armoured personnel carriers in the city. London is a centre of life sciences and biotechnology-related research; much of this is conducted or supported by the University of Western Ontario. The university adds about C$1.5 billion to the London economy annually. The headquarters of the Canadian division of 3M are located in London, and both the Labatt and Carling breweries were founded there. A $223 million expansion project began in 1984, making Kellogg's Canada's 106,000 m2 (1,140,000 sq ft) London plant one of the most technologically advanced manufacturing facilities in the Kellogg Company.
A portion of the city's population work in factories outside of the city limits, including the General Motors automotive plant CAMI, and a Toyota plant in Woodstock. In 1999 the Western Fair Association introduced slot machines. Currently, 750 slot machines operate at the fairgrounds year-round. McCormick Canada, formerly Club House Foods, was founded in 1883 and currently employs more than 500 Londoners.
London's city centre mall, Galleria, named Citi Plaza in 2009, has suffered since the 2000 collapse of Eaton's and the loss of its Hudson's Bay Company store. The large space left empty by the departure of the Bay has since been filled by London's central library. Other sections of Galleria/Citi Plaza have also lost businesses, which have been replaced by campuses for London's major post-secondary education schools, Fanshawe College and the University of Western Ontario.
A new $11-million cargo terminal was announced to be built at the London International Airport. Two interchanges will also be upgraded to Parclo A4 configuration.
