Meet Gateway South Wales, which encompasses the local authorities of Newport, Monmouthshire and Torfaen, is further galvanising efforts to win MICE business for the region following the success of the NATO summit last year, with the launch of a new website.
The local authorities joined together following a grant from the regional tourism partnership, Capital Region Tourism, in a bid to generate additional business tourism spend within the region.
“The new website allows us to provide a stronger service for our clients,” says Lynne Richards, tourism officer of the Meet Gateway South Wales’ partnership. “Our aim is to show the industry that this corner of South East Wales has an amazing scope of venues and places for events, conferences and incentives, and the website is a key tool moving forward for us as we look to benefit the region and its venues.”
The new website, which can be found at meetsouthwales.org.uk, showcases a range of key venues across the region including The Celtic Manor Resort, St Pierre and Chepstow Racecourse and Conference Centre, as well as incentive offerings such as teambuilding, outdoor activities and more than 20 golfing venues in the region.
Events held in the region have included the 2014 NATO summit, The 2010 Ryder Cup, the 2014 British on Road Cycling Championships , and the upcoming Velothon.
