Milton Keynes launches conference bureau

Milton Keynes has launched a dedicated conference bureau designed to encourage corporate business into the city. Local company Events In Business has won a competitive pitch to deliver and operate the bureau, which will be called Destination Milton Keynes. The city will now be in a position to capitalise on the increasing number of hotel rooms, extensive conferencing and leisure facilities that it has to offer the business traveller and compete with the rest of the country’s top cities. Destination Milton Keynes chair Tony Palgrave said: “We are delighted to make this announcement. Events in Business demonstrated a thorough knowledge of Milton Keynes and its potential, now and in the future, as a business destination in both the national and international conferencing arena. “Milton Keynes is geographically well positioned for both UK and international visitors with its superb transport links, and we are confident that before long the whole city will benefit economically from the launch of the conference bureau.” Events in Business managing director Linda Mansfield added: “As Milton Keynes retains its position as the fastest growing city in Europe, we are hugely optimistic that we can maximise on the excitement and buzz that surrounds the city. Until now, we haven’t been able to compete with other cities, as we haven’t had the accommodation and facilities to cater for larger groups. But that is all set to change now.” Destination Milton Keynes is expected to be operational from 1 May 2006.
