Sunderland’s Stadium of Light is celebrating after securing the reputable North East England Tourism Awards at the iconic venue. Gary Hutchinson, Commercial Director at Sunderland AFC and 1879 Events Management said:
Sunderland AFC and 1879 Events Management is honoured to host the North East England Tourism Awards 2014 at the Stadium of Light. As a venue we welcome thousands of outside visitors every year and understand the importance of tourism to our regional economy.
Hosting the awards is an absolute privilege but also a perfect match. As one of the North East’s most iconic venues, the Stadium of Light has had a huge impact on tourism in the region in recent years and we look forward to welcoming the region’s most innovative businesses to our venue in November
Manchester Central will host Manchester City’s ‘MTV Awards style’ season launch party 14 August (pictured). City hope to build on the success of last year’s event, that saw a live audience of Blues fans treated to a night of comedy from funny man and lifelong supporter Jason Manford, plus music from chart sensation, Miles Kane. City’s annual end-of-season awards will be dished out and new Club signings will be presented to the City faithful.
