PORTABLE hotel firm Snoozebox has won a £3.8 million contract to supply accommodation for 1,350 staff at the upcoming G8 summit in Northern Ireland.

The Aim-quoted firm, headed by Malmaison co-founder and former Ted Baker chairman Robert Breare, said it will provide 170 cabins – each capable of housing eight people – for the event at Lough Erne in June.

Breare said: “We are delighted to be able to follow up the success of our Olympic security village in 2012 with support to this important event in 2013.”

The firm, which has Scottish former Formula 1 racer David Coulthard as its president, posts its full-year results next week.
