United Kingdom Meeting & Event Planning City Guide

As it is the most popular European destination for American groups, United Kingdom meeting and event planning sites have a lot of experience with meeting expectations. Many offer a “dollar-guarantee,” while others are so magnificent, such as the Tower of London, as to be irresistible. One of the UK’s attractions is its concision: London is within hours of Cardiff, Wales, which is within hours of Manchester, which is within hours of Glasgow, Scotland. Meeting and event planning in these United Kingdom regions will always be distinctly different.
