The Spires, operators of serviced suites accommodation in Aberdeen, Birmingham and Glasgow, is to present its business facilities at the Office, a brand new exhibition at Earls Court in London on September 21-22. The new exhibition is aimed at office managers and PAs .
Commenting on the decision to take a stand at this exhibition, Margaret Beattie, Managing Director of The Spires, said:The Spires Directors Suites come with a separate office room, complete with full-size desk, wireless internet, printer and stationery
“So far this year we have exhibited at some of the top business travel exhibitions from the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, through to the NBTA convention in Houston last month. But, we recognise that office managers and PAs are a different target market for us. It is usually the PA or office manager who has to find and book accommodation for directors, managers and corporate visitors.
“At the Office show we will be showcasing the benefits our suites offer business users, particularly our Director’s Suites which we now have at all three locations. These have a separate office room, within the suite, complete with a full-sized desk, free wireless internet, plus printer and stationery.
“Our business guests tell us that the big benefit of a serviced suite, compared to a hotel room, is that there is space to work and even to invite business colleagues to meet. By contrast, many hotel rooms have a tiny desk the size of the room service menu, possibly a chair and the internet connection is often charged by the hour.
“We want to get across to PAs attending the Office show that our suites offer a much better working environment and often work out cheaper than hotel rooms. Colleagues, or family, sharing a two-bedroom suite usually work out considerably cheaper than a comparable quality hotel.”
