Innovate to Elevate - Programme Launch

1st May 2018

At the very core of The AHC is an acclaimed programme of world class key note speakers, engaging presentations by industry leaders, interactive workshops, debates and panel discussions where senior figures in their field share valuable industry insight. We know delegates place significant value on the conference programme and so aim to create an outstanding schedule that delivers thought-provoking yet practical advice.


The 2018 programme is crafted around this year’s theme: Innovate to Elevate. Innovation is now inherent in our personal and professional lives as we encourage and expect enterprise, creativity and freedom in work and leisure. The hospitality industry stands to benefit from immeasurable opportunities facilitated by innovation and technology but often this is a baffling, complex and misunderstood world.

View The AHC 2018 programme here. Confirmed speakers include: co-presenter of Radio 4 FutureProofing, Leo Johnson; independent economist; Dr. Rebecca Harding; co-founder & CEO, Avvio, Frank Reeves and Senior Vice President, KSL Capital Partners and winner of the IHIF 2018 Young Leader Award; Tina Yu. Additional speakers and further details of session topics can be viewed here. We’ll be sharing interviews and insight with speakers plus more details on the programme over the coming months.

The 15th AHC will take place on the 10th and 11th October 2018 at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel.

We are also continuing to offer a heavily discounted hotelier rate available to owners of up to ten self-operated properties in the UK. Please contact Rowan Scahill for further information.
