MIPIM Conference

Bill Wren made this Freedom of Information request to Bristol City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Bristol City Council,

It's been reported that the Mayor and an entourage attended this year's MIPIM conference in Cannes.

Can you provide a list of staff and politicians from Bristol City Council who attended the event (in the case of officers the post they hold will be adequate)?

Can you provide a list of anybody else who attended the event paid for by Bristol City Council?

Can you also provide a full breakdown of costs to Bristol City Council and any income from other organisations or authorities they received in relation to the event?

Can you provide any information on the benefits to the authority and wider public from attending the event?

Yours faithfully,

Bill Wren
