The creative worlds of television and film have become more and more business-like in their approach, as budgets have been squeezed and potential box office profits have been the deciding factor as to whether a project ever sees the light of day. Reflecting this trend, The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has joined forces with Expotel.

Already well established in the world of business, Expotel helps companies and individuals to save money by providing a free hotel booking service. It will find and book you a hotel room anywhere in the UK or worldwide. In many cases it can also offer a discounted room rate - and the service doesn't cost a penny.

This year, Expotel has teamed up with The British Academy to help the 3,000 celebrity guests find accommodation in the capital for the 50th anniversary event, the largest in the history of the Academy. To celebrate the occasion, Expotel is offering readers of the Independent on Sunday the exclusive opportunity to win a pair of VIP tickets to the season's most glittering and spectacular social event, to be held in London's Royal Albert Hall.

Mingle with more than 3,000 stars and guests from the world of television and film at this year's awards ceremony, which takes place on 29 April.

The prize includes tickets to the ceremony, travel to and from London, accommodation in a luxury hotel and transport to and from the event by chauffeur-driven limousine.

The VIP tickets include entry to the champagne reception, celebrity gala dinner and seats in one of the Royal Albert Hall's luxury eight- seat Grand Tier boxes.

Expotel is the country's leading hotel reservations agency, booking more than 1 million room nights a year from a database covering more than 30,000 hotels worldwide. For further information about Expotel's services, call 0171 328 9841.
