Manchester has become the first
destination in the UK to sign up with the Association of
British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO).
Visit Manchester, the tourist board for Greater
Manchester, has joined as a corporate member.
MD, Paul Simpson, says: “Manchester was recently named the best UK destination at the 2010 Confex Awards and
we’re delighted to keep the city at the forefront of business tourism by working
with organisations such as ABPCO.
“This new membership, which is a first for a UK destination,
will ensure that we gain the greatest exposure to the most influential clients
in the conference and meetings industry.”
Chair of ABPCO, Rebecca Cadman-Jones, says: “We are
delighted to have Manchester on board as a corporate member.
Manchester is a
vibrant, forward thinking city and we are looking forward to working closely
with them in the future.”
