A message from Angie Mason, HBAA 2019 Chair:

"Facilitated by Calum Di Lieto from C & IT Magazine, the HBAA Forum 2019 is a 'go to' event.

In line with our strategic plans for 2019 - Supporting The Next Generation and Mental Health Awareness - the Agenda will focus strongly on these primary areas to deliver amazing content for learning and inspiration.

Sessions will cover topics such as how our #Nextgen see the hospitality and events sector developing with the ‘Future Focus’ session,  through to the ‘Not For Sale : Human Rights’ which highlights Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery in our industry sector.

With first class speakers each day and an update on the incredible success that our 2019 Charity partner ‘ Buses for Homeless’ has achieved, this year also sees the event return to the popular format which spreads content over a day and a half.

Who will want to miss the fun packed evening dinner, with entertainment from Song Division!

Spaces will be limited so do book your places soon to avoid disappointment."
