Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Scoops Top Award for Business Growth
27/02/24 Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Scoops Top Award for Business Growth

The Mercure Manchester Piccadilly hotel has won a prestigious award at the annual conference of its management company, Aimbridge Hospitality, which represents more than 1,500 properties globally.

The award for ‘Most Improved Brand Metric Performance 2023’, sponsored by Accor, honoured the iconic four-star hotel for achieving an impressive year-on-year improvement of 12.7%.

This follows a major £3million refurbishment of the hotel’s 280 bedrooms, reception, and ‘International Suite’, which is one of the largest event spaces in Manchester with a capacity for up to 800 people. The recent transformation is part of an ambitious long-term vision, strategy, and investment plan to revolutionise the property and position it as the go-to hotel and meetings and events venue for both leisure and business guests in the heart of Manchester.

General Manager, Andrew Krawec, said: “We are beginning the next phase of our ambitious journey, which includes several new projects for 2024 and beyond, so this accolade marks an exciting time for us. It is a remarkable achievement that not only recognises our success; it is a celebration of the exceptional team we have at Mercure Manchester. Their commitment to excellence has not only elevated our brand but has also set a high standard for the entire team.”

Beyond the building itself, the business has focused on its people, bringing in new talent to ensure its offering is exciting, full of personality, and perfectly placed to become a formidable player in the North-West hospitality scene.

The awards took place at The Eastside Rooms in Birmingham, as part of the Aimbridge Hospitality EMEA Forum 2024.

  • 26/02/24 Ocean Sciences Meeting heads to Glasgow in 2026

    GLASGOW—Ocean Sciences Meeting 2026 (OSM26) will be held in Glasgow – the first meeting outside of the United States for the biennial conference founded in 1982. The meeting will bring together more than 5,000 delegates in Scotland to discuss all aspects of oceanography following previous events in San Diego and New Orleans. OSM26, which will be held in February 2026, has been endorsed by the UN Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development.

    Co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) and The Oceanography Society (TOS), OSM is the global leader in ocean sciences conferences. These three organizations bring together participants from the worldwide ocean sciences community, including research scientists, industry experts, agency program managers, policymakers, and those working in non-governmental organizations. Understanding the global ocean is crucial to society, and these diverse participants will gather to share research results, discuss challenges, raise awareness, and collaborate on approaches to support a thriving, sustainable, and equitable future.

    OSM is one of a growing number of sustainability-focused conferences that have chosen to convene at the Scottish Events Campus (SEC) after Glasgow hosted the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November 2021.

    AGU, the Marine Scotland Directorate within the Scottish Government, the SEC, VisitScotland, the Glasgow Convention Bureau and Maritz Global Events collaborated on the proposal.

    "Advancing ocean science to meet the urgent needs posed by the climate crisis requires international collaboration among scientists, science organizations, community leaders, the business community and international governing bodies, to name a few,” said Janice R. Lachance, Interim Executive Director and CEO of AGU. “By hosting Ocean Sciences Meeting outside of the US for the first time, we're expanding access to a new region of scientists who can share their findings, build relationships, and advance the impact of science. We’re also thrilled to be in Glasgow, a city that is leading the development of a green economy and has already hosted significant sustainability events, like COP26.”

    “I’m delighted that Glasgow has been chosen to host this important global gathering in 2026. Scotland has a long and proud heritage and tradition in ocean science and we have a wealth of expertise to share,” said Mairi Gougeon, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Land Reform and Islands. “The Scottish Government recognises the importance of the ocean to every aspect of our lives and people’s lives all around the world. Our Blue Economy Vision sets out how by 2045, Scotland’s shared stewardship of our marine environment supports ecosystem health, improved livelihoods, food security, economic prosperity, social inclusion, and wellbeing.”

    Commenting on the announcement, Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales, Scottish Event Campus, said: "Scotland has a wealth of knowledge and cutting-edge expertise in the ocean sciences sector which makes us a natural host for the conference in its first venture outside of the USA. As a team, the Scottish Government, VisitScotland, Glasgow Convention, and the SEC, have worked together with AGU to secure this important conference of global significance for Scotland. We look forward to welcoming the ocean sciences community to Glasgow in 2026.”

    Commenting on the announcement, Neil Brownlee, Head of Business Events, VisitScotland, said: “Scotland has a wealth of knowledge and cutting-edge expertise in the ocean sciences sector which without doubt make the country an appropriate choice for the conference’s first foray outside of the USA. I am proud to once again have had the opportunity to collaborate with the SEC, Glasgow Convention Bureau and Scottish Government to secure a world-class convention. I look forward to welcoming OSM to Scotland.”

    Experienced marketer and Private Equity Chair, Jonathan Harman, and Foresight Investment Director, Hugh Minnock, will be joining Live Group’s board following the investment.

    Toby Lewis, CEO of Live Group, shared his excitement: "We are thrilled to propel the rapid development of our digital engagement technologies. This latest investment marks a significant stride, providing our clients with enhanced empowerment. It ensures precise measurement of event spend and behavioural impact, allowing us to tailor a bespoke content journey for each individual rather than opting for a generic solution aimed at the entire audience."

How to Organise the Best Summer Party

Looking to host an amazing summer party? We’ve got some top tips and hard facts to help your summer celebration go with a swing. High on the agenda are three essentials: your party should be well attended, inclusive, and fun. There are many factors to consider, such as the venue, the theme, the menu, the decorations, the activities, and, most importantly, the guests. Here are some ideas that we hope will help you get it right. Start Planning Your Summer Party NowYipee! Summer is finally here. Or is it? In fact, unless you’re planning a year ahead, let’s hope you’re reading this on a cold, dark afternoon in winter, or perhaps one of those beautiful, crisp, frosty mornings, it doesn’t matter, the point it that summer is short, party venues get booked up, and your guest’s calendars will be filled in no time, so get started long in advance. People want the best from their summer, book early and give them what they want. Send a save-the-date as soon as you can, then secure the perfect venue and exciting activities before they’re taken. Give Your Summer Party the Perfect Personality?The secret sauce for a sizzling summer party that is talked about for years is the vibe. Create an atmosphere that matches what you want to achieve by choosing the right venue and party style. Want to bond the team and boost morale? You could try a thrilling outdoor corporate activity day at a county showground, or in the grounds of a country house hotel. Looking to boost team energy before a major sales campaign? Try go-kart racing or attending a live track event. Perhaps you just want to party with friends and family, or reward the team with a fun and relaxing evening out—where better than a rooftop bar with views across the city? Know Your Summer Party GuestsWhatever the party style you choose, it can be enhanced or harmed by your theme. For this, you have to think about your guests and the purpose. Say you chose a summer party with a tropical beach theme, and encourage your guests to come wearing Hawaiian shirts, hula skirts, and ready to punch volley balls. Nice. It’s going to awaken the Blue-Hawaii period Elvis in a lot of folks. But not all. For some, it’ll have all the appeal of an ice cream dropped in the sand. This can be true of many themes and event styles; all we’re saying is think of your guests. What’s going to work for them? Cater for Everyone: Being Inclusive at Your Summer PartyWhile we’re thinking about different types of guests, let’s talk food and drink. It’s almost without doubt that there will be dietary preferences and restrictions within your guest list or team. Make sure everyone feels they have been catered for and included by creating a food and beverage option that offers all the common dietary choices and requirements—vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, low salt, low fat—and any others you may come across. Top tip: the vegetarians will thank you for remembering they’re not all vegans (they love a bit of cheese). And remember, inclusivity goes beyond F&B, try and ensure that all guests can participate in all experiences; you’ll have a greater time, if you can all do it together. It’s Summer Party time! Celebrate, Relax and Have Fun with Your TeamMost of all, your summer party should be enjoyable. So, whether you choose an indoors or outdoors venue, whether it’s an elegant garden party or a raucous street carnival, go out and have a great time with your friends, family members, or colleagues. You’ll find some fantastic ideas and options for the best summer party venues, themes, activities and more at
