Visit London Up For Sale
Meetpie reports that the Visit London brand is to be sold off as Visit London Ltd is placed in administration:

“The tourism agency ceased to trade following the establishment of London & Partners, which brings together Visit London, Think London and Study London under one umbrella brand.

"Stephen Robert Cork and Joanne Elizabeth Milner at Cork Gully LLP have been appointed to handle the administration, which will see the sale of assets including the company name, website, merchandising, office equipment and TV and audio equipment.
