Getting into bed with the BNI
Holiday Inn Express Droitwich saw an opportunity in working with their local BNI group to spread the word on our Relaunch and product by using weekly relationship building with the local community. BNI is the world's largest business-networking organisation with approximately 4,900 groups throughout every populated continent of the world. Last year alone, BNI generated over 4.9 million referrals resulting in over £960 million worth of business for its members.
Droitwich attend a weekly breakfast meeting which starts at 6.30am and finishes at 8.30am. During this meeting, 20 local business owners have breakfast together and each business gets a 60 second slot to present their business to the group. After the 60 seconds, the crucial part of the meeting starts with group members passing business referrals between the group. Within the first 6 weeks, Somerston had won business for the Droitwich hotel and Holiday Inn Express Glasgow Riverside. If this can be achieved in 6 weeks, what can be achieved in a year?

Holiday Inn Express Lincoln celebrates 1st anniversary
It seems like no time at all since Holiday Inn Express Lincoln City Centre welcomed its first guests, but a full 12 months has passed since the hotel opened.
To celebrate the hotel's first birthday Darren Spencer-Phillips, General Manager, invited local guests to join the hotel team for a special celebration including a performance by the cast of the local festive pantomime.
"The hotel has exceeded all of our expectations, even in some of the toughest trading condition in memory and I think that's testimony to the dedication of our team and the quality of our property," commented Darren. "I'm like a proud father today!"
Having firmly cemented their position as a great hotel in the heart of Lincoln, Holiday Inn Express looks set to have a very rosy future and many more anniversaries yet to come.
