Leading hotel group extends support for National Meetings Week




Marriott UK and Ireland has become the latest name in the list of supporters to back the seventh annual National Meetings Week, which takes place from 15-19 October 2007.
 
The established family of hotels will support this year’s National Meetings Week campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the UK meetings and events industry. The theme for 2007, Sustaining Our Cultural Legacy, focuses on the positive impact meetings have in sustaining our culture, arts, heritage, local economy, community and education throughout the UK.
 
Roger Binks, director of marketing communications for Marriott, commented: “Marriott have always been an advocator of the National Meetings Week campaign and what it stands for. However, this is the first year that we will be an official supporter. It is great to play a part in highlighting the importance of CSR [corporate social responsibility] and, in particular, the positive impact that the meetings industry plays on sustainability in the UK.”
 
In addition to Marriott, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau – voted the nation's top convention bureau in 2007 – has also signed up as a partner of National Meetings Week to give a strong presence north of the border and ensure the event is a truly nationwide campaign.
