BIRMINGHAM. UK - Hilton Birmingham Metropole and MCL have joined forces to bring event organisers together in anticipation of the London 2012 Olympic games.

The four star hotel, based at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, is one of the UK’s largest conference and event venues and work with MCL regularly to produce exceptional events for their clients.

The complimentary “training camp”, which will take place on Thursday 4th August 2011 from 6.30pm, will allow organisers to experience the Hilton Birmingham Metropole’s facilities and MCL will be showing event organisers how to make their events sparkle with audio visual. Their sister company Presteigne Charter will also be providing the very latest 3D camera technology.

Liz Watson, director of business development of Hilton Birmingham Metropole, added: “This looks set to be a great evening; our guests will be able to show off their athletic prowess on our Xbox Kinect, a special edition of Question of Sport and the opportunity to win lots of great prizes too.”

All attendees will also be offered a complimentary bed and breakfast stay at the hotel. If you would like to attend, please call 0121 780 6379 or email emma.gorton@hilton.com.
