Laura Stanbridge honoured by Marbella City Council

The Marbella City Council honoured Laura Stanbridge at the first Annual Entrepreneur Assembly for her contributions to furthering foreign integration (Marbella’s newly created Think Tank and Marbella Open City), and original initiatives and contributions to the City.

An example of Laura’s contribution to Marbella is the recent trip to New York to promote tourism to the area by meetings with key press; organisations such as the NYC Chamber of Commerce to discuss mission trips for businesses; exploring ideas with NYC & Co (the official NYC tourism org.) for joint promotional opportunities; and Angeles Munoz, the Mayor of Marbella’s closing of NASDAQ which was seen by millions of viewers around the world.

Jose Luis Hernandes, Marbella’s Councillor for Tourism and Foreigners Department, presented Laura the award praising her dedication over years to develop opportunities to drive awareness of the City for both tourism and investment abroad as well as foreign integration in the area.

Approximately 200 business leaders attended the event which included a presentation by the Mayor about the City’s strategic plan and the much anticipated General Urban Development Plan. Jose Luis Hernandes also explained the objectives of the new Tourism Consortium to focus on projects supporting the local tourist industry and Marbella Open City which furthers foreign integration.

Laura Stanbridge is delighted with the recognition stating, “I hope this will inspire others. We can all make our ideas a reality by actioning them for good of our community”.
