The Spires promotes suites as business-friendly alternative to hotels
The Spires, operators of serviced suites in Aberdeen, Birmingham and Glasgow, is to focus on its benefits for business travellers with a stand at one of Europe’s top business travel exhibition next month.
This is the fifth year that the Spires, which has 105 suites at its three locations, will be at the Business Travel and Meetings Show in Earls Court 2, London on Tuesday, February 8 and Wednesday, February 9. The company estimates that it has generated around £40,000 of business at the exhibition over the past four years.
Commenting on their participation, Craig Duguid, National Sales Manger of The Spires, said:
“Attending this top business travel exhibition reinforces our position as one of the UK’s leading serviced apartment providers. In addition to meeting customers, it provides us with an ideal opportunity to network with the serviced apartment and business travel agents with whom we have built valuable relationships.
“Our suites in Aberdeen, Birmingham and Glasgow are all well located for business guests. They all have good accessibility for business centres, exhibition venues, local transport and airports.
“As well as telling people about the benefits of our Director’s Suites, which have a separate office equipped with a full-size desk, we will be presenting some of the other benefits for business travellers. In addition to a better working environment for a business trip, they often work out cheaper than than a comparable quality hotel, especially if two colleagues share a two-bedroom suite.
“We’ll also be presenting newly established deals that enable our guests to eat out – or order meals to eat in – with the cost being charged back to their apartment. Combine that with the availability of continental breakfast plus our new snack hampers, and we believe we are bridging the food service gap between apartments and hotels.”
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 they please as each suite has its own front door.
The Business Travel and Meetings Show brings together more than 200 businesses in the corporate travel business, including airlines, accommodation and car hire companies. Last years show was attended by more than 5,000 corporate travel and meetings executives.
The Spires is on stand 450 in Earls Court 2.
