Liverpool welcomed over 50 staff from 20 destinations across the UK for two days of education and networking at Hilton Liverpool for the annual MIA Destinations Summit.
It was a fantastic opportunity to hear from some of the leading figures in the meetings and event industry including Christian Mutschlechner, Head of Vienna Convention Bureau, Head of Business Events Kerrin Macphie from Visit Britain, Jane Cunningham from Cunningham Consulting AB and Julian Stubbs – place branding expert.
Liverpool Convention Bureau wowed delegates with a special evening at Liverpool Cathedral and the world-famous Cavern Club. Liverpool successfully won the right to host the event after a competitive process between other UK cities.
Attendees were full of praise for the city and the warm welcome we gave them, here is just a handful of some of their comments…
