Travel summit sets date

The 2016 Hospitality and Tourism Summit opens at the Grange St Pauls Hotel, London, on 27 June – four days after the EU referendum.

More than 30 speakers and panellists are scheduled to appear, including politicians, economic experts, industry leaders, business partners and global CEOs.

The timing means it will be the government’s first travel-orientated platform and an exciting early opportunity to discuss the impact of the vote on the country and on the travel industry.

Culture secretary John Whittingdale and former Conservative leader Lord Hague will be the keynote speakers while companies represented are expected to include Accor, Bidvest, Gatwick Airport, Google, Grange Hotels, Jumeirah Hotels and the Starwood Capital Group.

The event is organised by the British Hospitality Association (BHA) and Bench Events London.

It is widely recognised as an important forum for those who want to be part of the conversation about the latest developments.

Subjects under the spotlight will include aviation, business travel, the hotel and serviced-apartment sectors, restaurants and attractions, and how developments in them will shape the future.
