Opportunities have been created for suppliers wishing to align themselves with the agency and venue market, with two levels available – Supplier Partner and Supplier Associate.
Benefits include access to members meetings, the Annual Forum, Annual Dinner and other HBAA events. Organisations will also feature on the HBAA’s new website and contribute to the weekly Bulletin.
The initiative has been led by 2012 HBAA Chairman Chris Peacock of Conference Care, who said: “The agency and venue marketplace has traditionally been a difficult area to get access into. We’ve specifically looked at the supplier areas where our members want to learn more, gather expertise and make informed buying decisions. We’re looking to develop long term partners who will make the most of the unique networking opportunities the HBAA offers, at what have been previously member only events.”
Partnerships are available in the following sectors:
• Teambuilding / theming
• Finance & Payment solutions
• Social media / communications
• Destination bureaus
• Business services
