M&IT raises £22,000 for Meeting Needs projects with Marketing Awards Dinner
The Meetings Industry Marketing Awards Dinner raised more than £22,000. Of this £17K was raised in the M&IT online auction for MIMA 2013 and the balance in a table raffle.
Among the 73 lots on offer were golf breaks and football hospitality packages, as well as stays in hotels in Costa Rica, Cyprus and China, all in aid of the charity Meetings Industry Meeting Needs (MIMN).
Bidding ended with a flurry of activity in the final minutes. Among the most sought-after lots was a trip for two including flights to Arctic Spitsbergen, Svalbard, donated by Spitsbergen Travel & Norway Convention Bureau. Bids reached £1,201 and the eventual winner was Tesco's Kate Conway.
Also leading the way after an impressive 18 bids was Glenn Garson-Oltmanns, who offered £810 for two nights at Le Bristol Paris, valued at €3,240 (£2,752).
