A cracker for buyers as Barceló throws Christmas party

Luxury hotels and resorts company invites corporate and agency planners to Christmas Cracker MICE party

Barceló's Christmas Cracker MICE party was held at IET London - Savoy Place on Thursday

More than 100 agency and corporate meeting planners were the first guests to check out the new-look IET London - Savoy Place, when Barceló Hotels and Resorts held its Christmas Cracker MICE party.

The guests met with representatives from hotels in Spain, and from the rest of Europe and Latin America, and heard about a new venue opening in Madrid, while enjoying canapes and drinks at the venue's Maxwell Library.

A treasure hunt was also devised, where attendees won more than 20 holidays.

Barceló Hotels and Resorts head of international MICE sales Ann Marie Gildea said: "The UK is a major gateway for Barceló Hotels and our teams are keen to come and meet the key players. We are excited about next year as our MICE sector is growing from strength to strength, especially in the auto sector.”

The five-star Hotel Emperatriz, with 146 rooms, is due to open in downtown Madrid in January. It will add to the portfolio of more than 100 hotels across 16 countries, including the five-star Asia Gardens Hotel in Alicante and La Bobadilla Hotel near Granada.
