Convention and exhibition centres, Manchester Central and Excel London, have been crowned as the winners of one of the country’s major business tourism awards.
The venues were named as the joint winner of the Business Tourism Award at the Visit England Awards for Excellence, at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club in Manchester (20 May). These prestigious awards, currently in their 24th year, promote excellence in England’s tourism industry.
“I am thrilled that Manchester Central has been crowned joint winner of what is one of England’s most prestigious business tourism awards,” said Manchester Central Chief Executive, Angie Robinson.
“We have had an incredibly successful past year where we have made a massive impact upon business tourism, both regionally and nationally.
“Last year saw us attract some wonderful events to Manchester, including the Labour party political conference, the X-Factor final and some major international events. This has helped to generate more than £75m of economic impact for the region.”
