The Celtic Manor Resort has joined the British Hospitality
Association Cymru as it continues to team up with other Welsh hotels and
tourism partners to maximise the impact of the NATO Summit.
In partnership with Visit Wales, the Celtic Manor Resort has
been driving forward a NATO Legacy marketing campaign to bring more major
events to Wales. Chief Executive Ian Edwards said:
NATO Summit showed just what Wales is capable of when it works together to
deliver a major event. The Summit was spread across several venues in Newport
and Cardiff and its success was built on a ‘Team Wales’spirit to pull together to provide a special
experience for many of the world’s most influential leaders. We are determined to continue building on these
partnerships which offer Wales the greatest chance of attracting more major
events in the future. We are delighted to take another step towards that aim by
joining the British Hospitality Association Cymru and working ever more closely
with our colleagues in the Welsh tourism industry.
The new Chairman of the British Hospitality Association
Cymru is Justin
Baird-Murray, Managing Director of The Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells. He said:
The Celtic Manor Resort is an iconic venue
and a landmark tourist destination for Wales so we are delighted to welcome the
resort into the British Hospitality
Association Cymru. We look forward to working with Celtic Manor’s senior
managers and drawing on their experience and expertise to develop further
initiatives to grow the Welsh tourism and hospitality sector.
The Celtic Manor Resort recently picked up the Gold Award
for Best Business Tourism at the National Tourism Awards for Wales and has been
voted the UK’s Best Hotel at the Meetings and Incentive Travel Awards for the
last four years running.
