This Event took place at Olympia presented by James Hallam Hospitality and Leisure which is an event aimed at luxury and boutique hotels and suppliers
ACE, represented by Keith Brown, attended this last year for the first time and were impressed. This year there were over 300 exhibitors from suppliers to niche hotels.
In addition, a whole series of seminars and interactive events on topics as diverse as “weaponise your staff training” to “Oh! What a lovely Brexit” were on offer. This year Keith attended “Place Making: Neighbourhood Watch” which was basically about using your location to market your hotel but the real art is in forging alliances to make it work for you. This is about a more collaborative approach to events and building a local identity.
Off the many suppliers we were particularly impressed by Walter Greetings a family based company in Kent who produce a range of bathroom hospitality products.
This is an event that continues to grow as the independent sector grows and we look forward to attending next year.
