A wide variety of HBAA venue members, having taken up the association’s exclusive package, will be exhibiting on the dedicated HBAA Hub at this year’s Meeting Show, running from 13 - 15 June at Olympia, London.
As well as six members and the HBAA information desk, the HBAA will feature the exclusive HBAA Hang-Out area, where members can meet one another to catch up and network.
Several of the participating members explained why they decided to exhibit with the HBAA.
Ellie Martin from The Goodwood Hotel explains some of the benefits ‘We have chosen to exhibit with the HBAA as we found it good value for money and a great opportunity to showcase our venue alongside a reputable organisation’.
For others, exhibiting with the HBAA offers competitive advantage through its industry leading reputation, as Rachel Hutchinson from The Grand Brighton Hotel, explains: ‘Being part of the association’s stand as a member offers the opportunity for us to attract a new audience, backed up by the credentials connected with a high level of integrity and professionalism giving confidence to buyers’.
Louisa Watson from Wyboston Lakes, echoes these comments, saying ‘For Wyboston Lakes partnering with the HBAA was a cost effective and symbiotic way of establishing a long-standing alliance further. It also further signals a move closer to our valued agents and giving further weight to the Code of Practice that is important to both Agent and Venue and also to the corporate client.’
Exhibiting with the HBAA also affords the opportunity for additional exposure affordably as Barbara Thomas at Danubius Hotels, reveals ‘We have done this historically to reduce costs. We are partner members of the HBAA and support them whenever possible.’
And, of course, everyone is welcome to come along to the Hang Out area at any time during the show.
