UK electrical retail giant signs £1m meetings and events supply contract




Comet has appointed one of the UK’s leading suppliers of specialist venue and travel solutions, Inntel, to provide accommodation, conferencing and travel services as part of a 12-month contract worth £1m.

"We were very impressed by Inntel’s strong credentials,” said the major electrical store chain’s procurement manager Tony McAlpine. “We have more than 275 locations across the UK and needed an agency that could help us reduce our costs and improve the efficiency of the business nationwide.

“We are optimistic that Inntel has the solutions that will make these cost savings a reality. We look forward to forging a long-lasting working relationship with the team.”

Given the recent pressures on the company, Inntel’s managing director, Douglas O’Neill, was understandably delighted with the major contract win.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to provide top-class facilities for such a well-known and well-loved UK brand,” he said.

“We are especially pleased to announce this account win during the current challenging economic climate. The appointment is a reflection of our ability to provide an adaptable service, which can be tailored precisely to our clients’ needs, coupled with our incomparable network of contacts across the venue and conferencing sector. Inntel’s preferential booking rates will also deliver considerable savings across Comet’s business.”
