BUSINESSES in Hertfordshire were urged to put their full weight behind the 2012 Olympics to ensure the county fulfils its potential as an Olympic venue and reaps the benefits in the future. The message came from a Countdown to the Olympics evening on July 21 at Sopwell House Hotel in St Albans organised by the Hertfordshire Hoteliers Association to draw attention to the opportunities presented by the Games. The association represents 26 properties throughout the county and is actively lobbying for more. Chairman Jon Kett-Reynolds said, The run-up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the events themselves should bring a significant increase in business into Hertfordshire. We are one of the few counties chosen to host Olympic events and now is the time to focus on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The evening began with a drinks reception followed by a barbecue and other speakers were St Albans MP Anne Main, Tim Hutchings from Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce and Steve Bromberg from Lee Valley Regional Park.
