Book your place at the unmissable event for hotel professionals – the Hotel Leadership Conference 2022, taking place on 17-18 January 2022 at Park Plaza London Riverbank. 

Bolder. Braver. Better.

The 28th Hotel Leadership Conference will be taking place 17-18 January 2022 at Park Plaza London Riverbank.

To champion the unrelenting passion and innovation shown over the last 18 months, the conference theme, BOLDER. BRAVER. BETTER., will focus on how as professionals, businesses, and an industry we can operate more consciously, innovate more efficiently, and grow effectively.   

Not just aimed at general managers, the two-day event developed by hoteliers will provide invaluable development and networking opportunities, including the event’s networking dinner, for hotel teams across the industry.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from a diverse range of experts that will provide thought-provoking insights to inspire hotel professionals from all departments.

So, whether you work as a front of house assistant, F&B supervisor, spa manager, marketing director or head of operations, you and your team will leave with new ideas and forward-thinking, implementable actions to take back to your business.
