EC Collective kicks off year two with FAM weekend

Agency meetings and events buyers will be given the chance to experience a different side of London in a special trip organised by the EC Collective, a Barbican-led initiative, bringing together arts venues, conference centres, accommodation providers and unique buildings within the famous Square Mile – or ‘EC’ post code.

The trip will take place from 18-20 September 2009 during National Meetings Week.
“The EC Collective’s first year brought together a host of suppliers within the Square Mile. Now we are working more closely than ever before, passing recommendations back and forth and most importantly creating our own destination, capable of competing on the global event industry stage,” said Anthony Hyde, head of corporate sales at the Barbican.

“As home to some of the world’s greatest businesses, it is entirely fitting that the Square Mile should be recognised as a leading destination for business events – the EC Collective provides that outlet and public façade.”
Members of the EC Collective include:  The Barbican, Tower Bridge, etc.venues, Apex hotels, Ironmongers hall, The Brewery, Malmaison, Crowne Plaza, The Mermaid, The Hoxton, Guoman The Tower, The HAC, Trinity House, Cavendish Conference Centres, The Andaz, 196 Bishopsgate, Chartered Accountants Hall, Chester Boyd, LSO St Lukes, Cook and Butler, De Vere Venues, Dot 2 Dot, Museum of London, Swissotel, CCT Venues, Crown Group/Gibson Hall and Searcy 1847.
