The conference will provide an overview of the industry from an economic perspective and reveal the association’s key plans and focuses for the year ahead – as well as celebrating the industry as a whole.
Incoming association chairman Jacqui Kavanagh, of Trinity Events Solutions and 2015 venue chairman Hayley Stokes of Principal Hayley will present their aim for the success of the HBAA, before outgoing chairman Chris Parnham shares his highlights and thoughts on how the association has evolved during his two years at the helm.
HBAA members will also get the chance to meet and network with the executive committee, and learn more about how they can get involved to maximise the benefits of a membership. Additionally, consultant Executive Director Juliet Price will highlight the key calendar dates and reveal the charity initiatives members can support.
Jacqui Kavanagh comments: “This is an excellent opportunity to hear about the association’s vision and strategies for the year ahead, and to meet our industry panel who will share their thoughts on leadership. The Kick Off Conference is a great way to spend two hours in the company of industry colleagues, and it will give you a head start on getting the most from your HBAA membership. We hope to see all the members at our annual dinner too, which promises to be a lively and entertaining evening.”
