Liverpool to open Embassy in London
Liverpool is continuing to push ahead with plans to open a London based embassy in early 2011. The idea is to attract inward investment into Liverrpool from companies already operating in the Capital city.
Chris Rose, Managing Director at Serviced City Pads (the Liverpool based serviced apartment booking service) commented, “I think this is another shrewd move by the city of Liverpool, following the investment that the city placed in the recent Shanghai Expo. Liverpool is fast becoming a can do city in terms of business and this move should see it move ahead of other competing provincial UK cities in terms of attracting business. Liverpool is making great strides as a regional corporate hub and is making up lost ground following years of decline through the 80’s and 90’s.
Liverpool having an embassy in London is good news for Serviced City Pads, as a business that is based in Liverpool with business in Liverpool. We expect to see increased movement between both cities with requirements for accommodation in Liverpool increasing from business people staying in the city, as well as workers from Liverpool having to work and stay in London as they begin to woo potential investors.
We would expect results to be apparent over a long period of time, and whether these results are directly as a result of the London based Liverpool embassy may not be clear. However, it is just another way of exposing Liverpool as a business city to the business community of London and beyond.
At Serviced City Pads we will be delighted to speak to everybody who is involved in the Embassy set up process who is requiring accommodation in London. We organise serviced apartments in London as a different option to staying in a hotel room. If you are travelling to London and staying over with colleagues, it can often work out more cost efficient to stay in a short stay apartment. This could lead to considerable savings over the course of the project.”
For anybody requiring an apartment in Liverpool, Serviced City Pads will be delighted to make arrangements for your stay. We have a wide range of serviced apartments acros both cities – and many other locations across the UK.
If you would like to know about staying in serviced apartments and the benefits they bring rather than staying in a hotel in Liverpool or London, please call the Serviced City Pads reservations team on 0844 335 8866 and one of the team will be delighted to help.
