About The Event

The focus for the Annual Conference in January 2018 is to ‘Inform’, ‘Inspire’ and ‘Invigorate’ members underpinning our kite mark of Excellence.  

The conference is open for registration to member venues and non-member venues who recognise the Venues of Excellence Conference as an excellent way to network with likeminded individuals, and to enjoy listening to keynote speakers who are experts in areas of leadership, customer care and have an in-depth insight into the trends and behaviours of MICE market customers.

Complementing the keynote sessions will be four interactive workshops; delegates may choose which two sessions they would like to attend.  During registration, refreshment breaks and lunch our exhibition will have a range of suppliers who are leaders in their service provision to the hospitality industry.  The conference programme will close with a panel discussion giving delegates an ‘open floor’ to discuss questions that have arisen during the day.

When the business day is done, delegates are invited to a drinks reception, followed by a dinner providing an excellent opportunity to mix with delegates, reflect on the day and enjoy great food and fine wines.

Friday 27th January, there will be two optional activities; the opportunity to visit three Venues of Excellence Venues or a unique opportunity to visit the development kitchens of the Compass Group.
