The Master Innholders announces line-up for 2013 Conference
The Master Innholders has announced that its next Annual Hotel General Managers’ Conference will take place on 14th and 15th January at Grosvenor House, Park Lane London.
The organisation’s 20th annual conference, ‘Stretching the Boundaries’, will focus on the economic issues currently facing the hotel industry. The two-day event will include presentations from a range of hotel and finance professionals who will share their experiences and provide delegates with ideas and advice for boosting their business.
Topics include: ‘Winning Through the Best Companies Experience’ by Jonathan Austin and Wayne Clarke, CEO and International Partner of the Best Companies Partnership; ‘The Corporate Athlete – Managing Wellness and Resilience for Business Leaders’ by Dr Dorian Dugmore from Wellness International; ‘The Art of Service’ by Fred Sirieix, General Manager at Galvin at Windows; and ‘Global Tourism: The Opportunity for the UK’ by Dr Taleb Rifai, Secretary General for the UN World Tourism Organisation.
A Champagne reception and black tie dinner will take place on Monday 14th January, which will include the presentation of the Hotelier of the Year award.
Andrew Stembridge FIH, MI, Master Innholders Chairman, says: “2012 has been a tough year for hotels and during times like this it’s even more important for the industry to come together. By sharing our passion, experiences and best practice we will continue not only to improve standards but also to aid the survival of hotels throughout the UK.
“Last year’s conference saw attendance up by 25 per cent and we’re hoping that the great line-up of speakers and topics will encourage even more of our members to join us.”
Delegate prices start at just £250 and there is a special early bird offer of one free place with every four booked, provided the booking is received by 9th November.
