The Spires showcases business facilities at Business Travel and Meetings Show
The Spires, operators of serviced suites accommodation in Aberdeen, Birmingham and Glasgow, is presenting its business facilities at one of Europe’s top business travel exhibitions in London next week.
The Spires is on stand 84 at the Business Travel and Meetings Show in Earls Court, London, on Tuesday, February 9 and Wednesday, February 10. This is fourth year that The Spires has taken a stand at the show, which the company estimates has generated around £30,000 of business for them over the past three years.
Commenting on the exhibition, Craig Duguid, National Sales Manger of The Spires, said:
“This is the top business travel exhibition in Europe, so it is important for us to be there and to network with others in the business travel industry to present the excellent facilities we can offer for business travellers.
“Our suites in Aberdeen, Birmingham and Glasgow are well located for business guests. All have good accessibility for business centres, exhibition venues, local transport and airports.
“We’ll also be using the Business Travel and Meetings Show to tell people about our the recently-introduced Director’s Suites at each of our locations. These have a separate office room, within the suite, complete with a full-sized desk, free wireless internet, plus printer and stationery.
“Our business guests keep telling us that the big benefit of a serviced suite, compared to a hotel room, is that there is space to work and even to invite business colleagues to meet.
“By contrast, many hotel rooms have a tiny desk the size of the room service menu, possibly a chair and the internet connection is often charged by the hour.
“We want to get across to business people at the Business Travel and Meetings Show that our suites offer a much better working environment and often work out cheaper than hotel rooms. Two colleagues sharing a two-bedroom suite is usually considerably cheaper than a comparable quality hotel.”
All suites at The Spires come with living room, fully fitted kitchen and dining area, plus one or two bathrooms. Guests are free to come and go as each suite has its own front door. Continental breakfast is available.
The Business Travel and Meetings Show brings together more than 200 businesses in the corporate travel business, including airlines, accommodation and car hire companies.
The Spires will be running a competition for stays at The Spires in Aberdeen, Birmingham or Glasgow and other prizes. The competition will run on The Spires Twitter (@The Spires) over the two days of the exhibition. There will be five questions on The Spires Twitter feed during the exhibition the winners will be announced at 12pm on February 11.
