The Annual Dinner has grown into one of the industry’s most popular networking events. The evening has a great balance of fun and networking with fellow agent and venue members. We have had great feedback from our members who have attended the Dinner in the past and many look forward to it as the social event of the year!
HBAA's 2017 Annual Dinner took place on the same day as the HBAA Annual General Meeting and Members’ Kick Off Meeting, at Hilton London Bankside, on Friday 13th January 2017.
HBAA AGM, Kick-Off Meeting and Annual Dinner Feedback
Following on from our recent events, it is great to hear that our members thought the whole day was such a success! We received such fantastic feedback from the attendees.
We started with the AGM and Kick-Off meeting, where many members took a lot away from this opportunity to be updated with HBAA progress. Lauren Goodwin from Jupiter Hotels said she “really liked the updates from the committee and also excellent speaker.” Also, Helen Shepherd from Best Western Hotels stated it was “Great, really helpful knowing who was who and what the groups were doing and their plans for the year ahead, this was brilliant.” This was also reflected in attendee’s overall opinion review of these events.
The positivity continued for the Annual Dinner, held in the Ballroom. Lynette Wood from Jupiter Hotels stated “the food was amazing, venue looked beautiful and great networking.”
