The Competitive Edge, which runs both London.DMC and Manchester.DMC is expanding its incentive and events activities to other key UK destinations including Oxford, Bath and Liverpool.
The expansion reflects TCE’s ongoing growth, as the leading UK DMC offers an alternative for European incentives as well as the hosting of international groups from China, The Far East and South America. Such corporate groups tend to stay longer in the UK providing opportunities to extend their trips beyond the major cities and explore other parts of the country.
“In the South we are expanding our London based operation up to Oxford and across the Cotswolds to Bath, whilst our Manchester team is developing their offering in Liverpool,” comments Bill Prosser, managing director of The Competitive Edge. “Using our already successful offices as bases to push into new parts of the country allows us to maintain the high levels of service and delivery we are known for, whilst remaining agile and efficient. We have chosen these particular areas for growth as they are particularly popular with groups looking to combine London or Manchester with other contrasting yet nearby destinations.”
TCE’s decision to focus on these new markets was very well received by current and potential clients at IMEX America, including a group of international buyers (pictured) introduced by René van der Veen from DMC-Connection: “A lot of European groups have done the major cities and they are looking for something different, which these destinations provide. After many years of partnership we know and trust TCE, their name is synonymous with quality and credibility and their expansion into these new destinations will offer something creative and exciting to the market.”
