MCI becomes Visit London Platinum Partner

Visit London has announced a new Platinum Partner – MCI UK, the British arm of one of Europe’s leading association, communication and event management companies. MCI UK will be able to plug into its global reach for Visit London and will work to secure more large event business for London from the corporate and association sectors. MCI is the first business of its type to become a Platinum Partner of Visit London. Existing Platinum Partners include high profile organisations, such as Transport for London, Hilton Hotels, The O2, Chelsea Football Club, Canary Wharf Group, Eurostar and Excel London. Visit London’s Chief Executive James Bidwell said: “As the corporate and financial capital of Europe, London is already a huge draw for meeting and event organisers. We look forward to working with MCI in attracting more large-scale events to London.” Jennifer Jenkins, Managing Director of MCI UK, said: "London has an enviable reputation as a destination and by working closely with Visit London, we intend to make it an even more attractive proposition for our clients when considering locations for meetings and events of all types and sizes."
