Get a group hug from Eurostar

5 Sep 2005

Eurostar, the high-speed train operator that links the UK, France and Belgium, today launched 'Group Hug' its new monthly e-newsletter for the Conference and Incentive market.
The monthly bulletin from Eurostar's Business Groups team will deliver the latest news on what Eurostar can offer to the MICE market. Those who have arranged group travel on Eurostar in the past will be kept up to speed on new changes and developments. Newcomers will be given an insight into the Eurostar Groups' product and what they've been missing!
Eurostar's services in this sector range from the ability to book exclusive carriages on scheduled services through to chartering an entire Eurostar train to carry 750 delegates to Paris, Disneyland Resort Paris, Brussels or Lille! Eurostar's Groups team can also advise on providing onboard entertainment and corporate branding to make a charter or exclusive carriage extra memorable.
Katie Bristow, Account Manager Business Groups, Eurostar, said: "The Conference and Incentive market is a key area for Eurostar. The launch of the Group Hug e-newsletter will ensure that all those involved in this sector are aware of the wide range of unique services Eurostar offers to the group travel sector."
