    There is a growing body of literature concerning the impact of clustering on the economic efficiency of high technology small firm operation. By considering high technology firms within the emerging nonbroadcast visual communications (NBVC) sector, this paper seeks to explore business linkage aspects of clustering at the regional scale, and at the local level within South East England. La documentation sur l'impact de l'agglomeration des petites entreprises A la pointe de la technologie est plus repandue. A partir d'une etude des entreprises a la pointe de la technologie au sein de la jeune industrie des communications visuelles non-commerciale, cet article cherche a examiner les liens commerciaux qui resultent de l'agglomeration sur le plan regional et a l'echelle locale dans le Sud-est de l'Angleterre. Es ist ein starker Zuwachs in der Literatur uber die Auswirkung der Gruppenbildung auf die wirtschaftliche Leistung hochentwickelter Zwergfirmenunternehmen zu verzeichnen. Dieser Aufsatz beabsichtigt, unter Berucksichtigung technologisch entwickelter Firmen Aspekte von Anhaufungen von Geschaftsverbindungen im aufkommenden, nicht ausstrahlenden visuellen Kommunikations(NBVC)sektor auf regionaler und auf Ortsebene in Sudostengland zu untersuchen.
