HC Deb 10 June 1999 vol 332 c367W
Mr. Peter Ainsworth

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps his Department took to promote Britain's millennium celebrations at the European Incentive and Business Travel and Meetings Exhibition in Geneva. [85297]

Janet Anderson

[holding answer 24 May 1999]As the name indicates, this particular Exhibition in Geneva was primarily concerned with business incentives and business travel. The British Tourist Authority, which is funded by my Department, was present at the exhibition and promoted the millennium celebrations primarily through their "VisitBritain" internet site which was live on the stand with open access for anyone wishing to explore it. In addition, pictures of the Millennium Dome and other millennium projects, such as the Eden Project, were integrated into the overall design of the stand.
