Jaguar Land Rover and the Radisson Blu Hotel in Birmingham have teamed up with Birmingham City Council to offer one lucky MIPIM delegate a VIP trip to the city and the region.

Visitors to the Birmingham stand at the global property conference in Cannes will be able to look over the brand new Jaguar XJ that is set to take the luxury car market by storm.

The XJ has just been launched to critical acclaim in the south of France.

Coun Mike Whitby, Leader of Birmingham City Council, is particularly pleased that the city has managed to arrange for one of the new models to be proudly displayed on the Birmingham stand at MIPIM.

“The new Jaguar XJ exemplifies all that is best about Birmingham. It is a contemporary luxury car that is beautiful, exhilarating and sustainable.

“It demonstrates what we can do in the West Midlands and is the most powerful showcase for our automotive industry.”

After they have been fully briefed on all the existing developments coming to Birmingham and the West Midlands, delegates visiting the Birmingham stand will be invited to enter the competition.

The lucky winner will experience Birmingham as a VIP for the day. With a partner or friend, the winner will be collected from Birmingham International Airport in a chauffeur-driven Jaguar XJ before being whisked to Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich plant for an executive tour of the production facilities there.

Then it’s on to Birmingham’s landmark Radisson Blu Hotel where they will enjoy contemporary Italian dining in the hotel’s Filini Restaurant and an overnight stay in the Presidential Suite.

The following morning they will be collected from the Radisson Blu and taken to the exciting 4x4 off-road driving experience at Land Rover’s Home of the Legend track in Solihull.

Kathrine Ohm Thomas, General Manager of the Radisson Blu, said: “Whoever wins this great prize will see Birmingham at its best.

“They will enjoy a fabulous meal and a luxury overnight stay in our Presidential Suite as well as experiencing the very best that Jaguar Land Rover has to offer.”
