The event management and Asian wedding specialist will be joining a select number of UK companies on next week’s trip (16th to 19th June) to the city which is due to host the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Headed by Tessa Jowell, Minister for the Olympics and London, the delegation will be honoured with a special reception before embarking on a round of meetings and visits throughout Vancouver looking at the potential for trade links between Canada and the UK during the next fours years of Olympics activity.
Leicester company Tania-Tapel Limited was set up by businesswoman Anita Patel over 12 years ago to specialise in event management, ethnic marketing and Asian wedding planning and has since expanded to create operations in Mumbai and Dubai. Earlier this year, the company was voted the UK’s premier wedding planners in the prestigious WrapIt wedding industry awards.
Says Anita Patel: “With Vancouver due to host the 2010 Winter Olympics, followed by the 2012 Olympics in London, this invitation offers a tremendous opportunity to examine the cultural and business potential between the two countries. I’m looking forward very much to seeing at first hand the commercial impact the games are already having in Canada and how that is likely to be echoed in this country and how we can assist with our expertise in niche event planning.”
The trade mission to Vancouver, part of the region of British Columbia, will be hosted by the 2010 Commerce Centre, part of the winter games secretariat, and the British Consulate.
