It doesn't, I'm simply correcting him.

Perhaps if you stopped taking about Manchester it wouldn't happen. I don't see the references to Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool on here, just Manchester over and over again.

Just ignore LNGCats, he's a knob and I'd hate you to think that all us Mancunians are like him.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas Brum

Mmhmm

Anyway, I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. I didn't get much of a chance to check out the Christmas market because it was so rammed but the addition of the little fairground looks great.

From Business Desk:

Birmingham Christmas campaign heralded a success

BIRMINGHAM’S Christmas campaign, run in partnership with national tourism board VisitEngland, has been declared a success after attracting a record number of coach visitors.

The collaborative campaign led by Visit Birmingham, ‘Open for Christmas’, aimed to position the city as a as must-visit destination offering a unique festive experience.

The city’s destination marketing agency joined forces with more than 15 partners, including Retail Birmingham and train operator London Midland, to deliver the integrated marketing campaign comprising national and regional advertising, door drops, creative PR, digital, social media and radio promotions with voiceovers from Smethwick-born film star Julie Walters.

Its campaign generated nearly £850,000 in positive media coverage across international, national and regional titles with the number of articles increasing by nearly two thirds from the previous year.

Hotels enjoyed occupancy rates of over 80% throughout the festive season - peaking at 85% in mid-December - with revenues up by 11% compared to the same period in 2011.

Bookings with Visit Birmingham’s ‘Meet and Greet’ welcome service also rocketed with 155 coaches and 7,332 passengers descending on the city’s popular Frankfurt Christmas Market - a rise of 36% and 37% respectively - with enquiries to Visitor Information Services reaching 1.6m, up from approximately 130,000 the previous quarter.

Emma Gray, director of marketing services at Visit Birmingham, said: “Working collaboratively with partners has enabled us to pool the city’s resources and deliver a highly successful Christmas campaign that has helped to boost the profile of Birmingham and the wider region during the competitive festive period.

“The ‘Open for Christmas’ campaign targeted visitors to spend a break in Birmingham during the festive period - record numbers of coach visitors, travelling from locations such as Teignmouth and Darlington, high hotel occupancy and increased enquiries to our Visitor Information Services demonstrate that Birmingham is growing in popularity as a festive destination.”
