Industry association The HBAA kicks off its first UK roadshow on 2 June.
A programme of association events will roll out from London via The Midlands and Manchester before returning to the capital.
The programme includes presentations, seminars, teambuilding events and networking, and will be documented through social media and the association’s YouTube channel.
Members, including agencies and venues, will get a chance to meet with HBAA’s representatives over the week of activities that will feature a specially designed teambuilding event from HBAA strategic partner Off Limits Corporate Events, which will take place at Alton Towers Hotel and Conference Centre.
The winning team members will win a weekend for two at the Marriott Hanbury Manor.
Chris Parnham, Chairman of the HBAA, says: “We see a lot of our members in London, or at industry events, but this is about reaching out to members and seeing how they conduct their day to day business in their venues and businesses. It also proves we are not a static organisation; we champion the importance of travel and relish any opportunity to build on our relationships with our agent and venue members.”
Juliet Price, Executive Director of the HBAA, adds: “This is an exciting venture for the HBAA and one that really enables us to convey what the association is all about. We will be documenting our week through all our social media channels and would love as many people as possible to be involved. Hopefully the success we have will mean we can make this an annual event with the opportunity to visit members in other regions next time round.”
