Why London

London is a truly cosmopolitan city and an unrivalled destination for events. England’s capital city, London, is served by 5 major international airports in addition to direct routes from North America into Birmingham and Manchester. Manchester, two hours away from London by train, is up and coming and hosts major conventions and big sports events and festivals. New Hotel openings include the London Westminster, Intercontinental Hotels & Resorts which opens its doors in November 2012. The hotel will feature 256 rooms, 7 meeting rooms and exceptional dining at Blue Boar Smokehouse and bar. Other exceptional properties include The Langham London, the 4 star Sheraton Park Lane, Lancaster London, a 4 star hotel in an enviable location only brief stroll from the iconic Hyde Park and Paddington Station, a fantastic option for pharmaceutical meetings. For smaller groups, the trendy Sanderson is an option, located in the heart of London in Soho (part of Morgan’s Hotel Group). For a product launch venue and luxury, the Corinthia Hotel London and The Ritz London will knock your socks off. Aloft London Excel is the only hotel in ExCeL London (directly connected to the ExCeL International Convention Centre). We can assist Clients to budget more effectively with dates based on very low demand, low demand, moderate demand and high demand dates. Of course, during the Visit England presentation at IMEX, I found that there is still plenty of talk about the legacy of the London Games and the energy that pervaded the city!
