Collaboration for London businesses

Westminster City Council and venue portfolio The Westminster Collection (TWC) have announced a joint venture designed to further develop business tourism in the heart of London. The collaboration will include joint networking events and promotional activities plus links between the two organisations’ websites. Commenting on the launch of the new partnership, TWC chairman René Dee said: “This is a major change in the development of TWC since our launch two years ago, and will enable us to add further value to our members and increase the appeal of Westminster as a major business destination.” Westminster City Council cabinet member Cllr Danny Chalkley said: "As cabinet member for economic development and transport I have a particular interest in this new relationship with the Westminster Collection. It is a very positive move for both parties, as it enables us to further promote the considerable business tourism benefits within the City of Westminster, raise the city's profile and deliver additional value to all businesses within the area." Council principal planning officer Graham Hadley added: “We are delighted to support the Westminster Collection. Tourism – and business tourism in particular – makes a vitally important economic contribution to London, and the Westminster Collection is a crucial partner in ensuring we maximise that benefit to the local area, including local employment opportunities.”
