It's dubbed The Oscars of the hotel industry, and The Midland Hotel in Manchester, part of QHotels is celebrating after being awarded Group Hotel of the Year at the prestigious Caterer and Hotelkeeper Awards 2014.





















Conference Predictions - 6 Month Review – June 2014


Claire Rowland, Director of Marketing at QHotels reviews predictions from January and shares her thoughts on conference trends for the next 6 months.

"2014 has been named as the year for recovery for the events & conference industry and we're definitely seeing its affect in our business as enquiries continue to rise and briefs become more tailored with increased spend.

Quality and service are still king but more companies are looking for an event with a difference within faster and short lead booking cycles, reflecting the need for a strong ROI in quality and service.



The vows, the dress, the centre pieces and wedding breakfast - all elements of the big day that couples traditionally personalise. This summer QHotels is taking it one step further by offering brides and grooms the chance to tailor their carbon footprint too.
