Wedding Winner Chosen
It’s been another busy week for Carlton Head Office as the team prepare for the summer months. Our sales and marketing team have been working on new ideas to promote our hotels over the next few months in the lead up to the summer. From what I’ve been told so far it sounds like there are a lot of great things in the works so I’m looking forward to hearing more. I say it every year but it’s hard to believe we’re planning for the summer already, it’ll be Christmas before we know it!
Also this week was the Fáilte Ireland Meitheal Trade Fair in the RDS which our Director of Sales and Marketing, Jean O’Connell attended, along with some of our hotels’ sales managers. The event was a great success and as with past year’s I’m confident it will bring more business from abroad into Irish hotels.
The big news this week was the end of our ‘Win a Wedding’ competition and a lucky bride to be was given a complimentary wedding at a Carlton Hotel of her choice. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my congratulations to Maggie Bourke who was selected as the winner after she received the highest number of votes. Maggie has chosen the Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel as her wedding venue and I’ve no doubt that Denis Deery and his team will help make her big day one to remember.
I’ll be tuning in to watch Leinster take on Ulster tonight in the RaboDirect PRO12 and if next weekend goes well I could be watching the same teams play in the Heineken Cup final! Hope you all have a great weekend whatever you’re up to.
