Blythswood Square in Glasgow is the official hotel partner for the 2011 MOBO Awards. The deal was confirmed when Glasgow was formally announced as the host city.
Hans Rissmann, Managing Director of the luxury five star hotel, said: ‘This is the first deal of this type that we’ve agreed since we opened in 2009. We’re delighted to be working with Kanya King and her colleagues and we are very much looking forward to welcoming the VIPs here in October.’
Speaking at the launch in the hotel’s Monte Carlo Suite, Kanya King, CEO and MOBO Founder, described Blythswood Square as ‘the place to visit for a glamorous and luxurious occasion’. The event returns to Glasgow where it was last held in 2009. Kanya King remembers 2009 fondly: ‘”We had such a fantastic experience when we hosted the MOBO Awards here in 2009, that it felt very natural for us to want to return and build on our great relationship with the city.”
