Tuesday 4th April 2017, First Direct Arena Leeds
Visitor registration and hosted buyer applications for the Conference and Hospitality Show has now opened.
The Conference and Hospitality Show (CHS) is one of the UK’s leading events for venue finders, event organisers and PAs; the show connects over 200 national suppliers with over 800 event buyers from across the UK. Now in its eighth year, the 2017 show will be held on Tuesday 4th April at the First Direct arena, Leeds.
The city centre location makes it easy to attend and has helped to attract exhibitors from all over the UK - over 200 venues, hotels, technology providers and many other meeting industry suppliers will be in attendance. Venues confirmed to date include Titanic Hotel Liverpool, Horizon Leeds, Feversham Arms Hotel, Elite Hotels, Lincolnshire Showground and The Lowry Hotel. Groups represented include Q hotels, Marriott and Pride of Britain, and suppliers include Venues.org.uk and Cvent.
Over 30 percent of exhibitors will be new for 2017 and include Hilton Worldwide, Principal Hayley, Church House Westminster, Jockey Club North West, Coventry & Warwickshire, Ripley Castle, Peak Venues, Teamsport and Right Angle Events.
Running alongside the exhibition is an education programme with sessions designed for event organisers, corporates and PAs. The event has a well-established hosted buyer programme and offers qualified visitors the opportunity to be upgraded to fully hosted or VIP status. VIPs and hosted buyers do not have to commit to a number of appointments on the day – they simply come along and experience the show.
Emma Cartmell, CEO, CHS Group said: “The Conference and Hospitality Show gives buyers a time and cost effective way to meet over 200 venues, destinations and suppliers all in one day, all under one roof. We have a reputation for creating events with personality that our buyers genuinely benefit from and really enjoy.”
CHS 2017 will take place on Tuesday 4th April at the first direct arena, Leeds. Doors open at 9.00am .
