Edinburgh has won its bid to host the first ever Millionaire Mind Intensive seminar in Scotland, 7-9 November 2014.
Organised by Millionaire Mind Intensive Scotland (MMI Scotland), the three-day event will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) and is expected to attract 2,000 delegates.
The city’s business tourism arm, Convention Edinburgh, estimates the MMI Seminar will generate over £1.5m for the local economy.
Based on the workings of T. Harv Eker and linked to the likes of Donald Trump and Richard Branson, MMI seminars have grown over 20 years to involve 1.5m people from six continents, 16 countries and 46 cities, have attended seminars over the last two decades.
Lukasz Loszczyk, founder and CEO of The LTL Enterprise, the company behind MMI Scotland said: “I moved to Edinburgh eight years ago with my family and have never looked back. It’s an exciting and friendly city that I think captures the positive ‘can do’ ethos behind MMI Scotland. Our plan is to make it our annual flagship event in Edinburgh.”
Lesley Williams, Head of Business Tourism at Convention Edinburgh added: “The MMI Seminars are incredibly popular across the world and we’re delighted Edinburgh will be the first host city in the UK outside London. Edinburgh has long history and reputation for innovation and enterprise which I hope will inspire the delegates.”
In other news, The Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre in Glasgow has been accepted into the International Association of Conference Centres (IACC).
Bronagh Bell, Director of the venue, said: “IACC is an internationally recognised symbol of quality and excellence in the conferencing industry, and it is important that Scotland has a venue which is committed to developing and supporting international meetings at this level. We look forward to collaborating with venues across the world to raise standards and develop excellent service to a global meeting audience.”
