    The Metamorphosis of the Hilton London Metropole took 10 months to complete and showcases the Hilton lobby DNA design concept for the first time in the UK.

    A 5ft cake was unveiled as a visual representation of the newly refurbished lobby at Hilton London Metropole, with each layer showcasing the six zones within the new-look space. One of the largest conference hotels in the UK and Europe, welcomes two new senior members to its sales team. The appointments of Jackie Boughton, director of sales, and Paul Weild, MICE sales manager, strengthen further the hotel’s highly regarded conference, meeting and events team with both bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to their new positions.

    Prior to being appointed as director of sales at Hilton London Metropole, Jackie Boughton was head of sales at Wembley Stadium, overseeing the launch and growth of the arena over the last five years. Boughton’s knowledge and skills acquired, over 35 years, enabled her to achieve great successes during her time at Wembley Stadium.

    During her career Boughton has been shortlisted for Conference and Incentive Travel’s top “Power 50” list. She also has an active role within the West London Business Chamber of Commerce as a board member, as well as a number of other industry consortiums.

    Paul Weild brings over eight years of corporate sales practice to his new MICE sales manager role, having previously worked for Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Hotel du Vin, Sodexo Prestige and Holiday Inn Hotels.
