UKHA launches Hospitality Expo 2020 event
The UK Housekeepers Association has launched the first-ever UKHA members Hospitality Expo 2020 event, in conjunction with events and awards organiser, MEG Events.
Hospitality Expo is aimed at procurement managers, general managers and housekeepers from hotels across the country and is free. It will take place at the Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, on 26th and 27th April 2020.
Hospitality Expo is the evolution of the UKHA's Shared Knowledge Days and will take place alongside the CleanEx exhibition, taking a separate floor at Ascot.
As well as a VIP day at Ascot, attendees will benefit from meeting with exhibitors as well as taking part in workshops and hearing from industry experts in panel discussions aimed at the hotel housekeeping industry. There will also be live product demonstrations taking place across the two days.
Attendees will also be able to access the exhibitors and events at CleanEx on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th April. Monday is tailored specifically for the housekeeping community.
All Hospitality Expo attendees will receive free tea, coffee and wine and will be entered into a prize draw. All UKHA members will also receive free lunch. There's plenty of free parking as well.
Potential exhibitors with products and services to offer to housekeepers and general managers should contact MEG Events now about securing an exhibition stand at Hospitality Expo 2020.
"We are very excited to introduce our first Hospitality Expo in conjunction with CleanEx 2020,” says Lorraine Dale (pictured), national chairperson for the UKHA. “This will be an exhilarating partnership with Tina and Mark Gleed from MEG Events. Our aim is to ensure our members are kept up to date at all times and to highlight housekeeping as a career of choice."
Liana Sparks, UKHA London chairperson, adds: "The Association has worked hard over the past few years to keep our members up to date and this exciting partnership will take us a step closer to keeping them at the forefront of the industry."
Melanie Penn, UKHA committee member, says the Association is forward to working with the team behind CleanEx and the Triple H awards on this project. “By joining up this will allow our UKHA members to have access to other suppliers within the industry whilst being able to attend a two-day exhibition," she notes.
