A bite of Europe

As an MEP I get invited to a variety of events and meetings, but it has to be a first when I was invited by Gordon Tyler, General Manager of Birmingham Marriott Hotel, and Hotel Executive Chef Andrew Robertson, to taste their unique ‘Euroburger’ which was brimming with ingredients from across Europe

There was also a serious side to this meeting as we discussed tourism and the hotel industry in the city. Birmingham is fast becoming a must see destination for tourists as well as being an established location for conferences and business events. With key events including the Ashes at Edgbaston and the Rugby World Cup at Villa Park also coming to the city and the recent introduction of a new flight path between Birmingham and Beijing, the hotel industry in Birmingham is set to benefit.
