Hilton hosts Great West launch

GreatWestCouncillor Amrit Mann, deputy leader of Hounslow Council, welcomed more than 100 guests including Suzie Betlem and several members of Brentford Chamber's executive on 21 July to the launch of the second edition of Great West magazine, which he described as “a fantastic publication which showcases our borough and tells the world our story”.

The event was hosted by the Hilton London Syon Park and, on a sunny evening, was held in one of its courtyards. Mann said: “We’d like to thank the hosts for this very fine venue; our sponsor, the Treaty Centre; the organisers, 3Fox International, publisher of Great West; and all the MIPIM and magazine sponsors. Both the leader and I recognize that business in Hounslow is the key to our success, so we are very supportive of business and want to make sure it is valued. The overall success of our borough, the economy of Hounslow, is reliant on those businesses and some of the key players are here today.”
