Chief Executive of Visit England, James Berresford is to deliver the keynote at this month’s Conference and Hospitality Show in Leeds.
The one day show, taking place on 26 April at Leeds United Football Club, is aimed at matching planners from across the UK with over 100 hotel, venue and industry supplier exhibitors from across the North and Scotland.
A strong seminar programme includes CN columnist Richard John and UK MPI President Samme Allen. Celebrated chef, Yorkshire born James Martin, is also in the mix.
Show organiser, Event Management 360, is opening the show with a VIP breakfast meeting.
Show Organiser, Emma Cartmell of Event Management 360, said: “Attracting such high level industry speakers shows how well regarded the Conference and Hospitality Show has become. We are now the only show of its type outside of London and we are recognised as one of the industry’s must-visit events which is great.”
The Show, now in its third year, has seen a 50 per cent increase in exhibitors, “at a time when some competitor shows have struggled with footfall in these challenging economic times”, according to Cartmell.
Nicola Lockwood, Head of Conference Leeds, a major sponsor of the Show, said: “The Conference and Hospitality Show has built a reputation for attracting high quality buyers and offering good old fashioned Yorkshire common sense. We are about doing business, providing educational seminar programmes, creating a welcoming atmosphere and all in one day!”
