About The Event

The focus for the Annual Conference in January 2018 is to ‘Inform’, ‘Inspire’ and ‘Invigorate’ delegates underpinning our kite mark of Excellence, translating our overall message of Brave New World and the challenges this itself brings.

We are delighted to announce a stunning line up of keynote speakers for this event who are absolute world-class leaders in their fields:

Alan Chambers MBE – former Marine Commando, Polar Explorer and overall motivational expert. Alan will deliver his message of determination and leadership in constant adversity.
Mandy Hickson – former RAF pilot who will share with us her proven strategies for success in a demanding environment.

Both speakers will provide you with inspiring stories underpinning specific messages most relevant to our industry sector.

The keynote sessions will be supported by a series of sessions from industry experts and interactive workshops. Details of these workshops are yet to be announced, but delegates may choose two sessions they would like to attend.

Our conference exhibitors will provide a broad spectrum of services across all elements of the hospitality industry available at various networking opportunities across the whole day.

This year the conference will culminate in a glamorous black-tie awards dinner with entertainment and dancing. A wonderful opportunity to mix with your industry peers and celebrate another successful year !
Friday 26 January, there will be two optional morning activities providing exclusive access to either Leicester Space Centre or King Richard III Visitor Centre

The conference is open for registration to both member and non-member venues. In particular, we welcome attendance by those who may be keen to explore membership further and learn more about the exciting benefits membership of Venues of Excellence can bring.
