Registrations Open for Inaugural Australian Hospitality Conference
Registrations opened today for the first ever Australian Hospitality Conference. The Conference is being convened by the Tasmanian Hospitality Association to coincide with the AHA’s National Awards for Excellence, to be held in Hobart on 5 September, 2012.
General Manager of the Tasmanian Hospitality Association, Steve Old, revealed the theme for the Conference will be improving profitability in your changing world and said the landmark event will be staged at Hobart’s Wrest Point, 3 to 5 September, 2012.
“The chance to use the AHA’s National Awards for Excellence as a platform to convene a national conference in Hobart was too good an opportunity to pass up,” Mr Old said.
The Conference will feature high profile international, national and local presenters in a bid to attract in excess of 250 senior representatives from the Australian hospitality industry.
“There are many tourism conferences and summits across Australia, but our Conference will be the only one of its kind because of its focus specifically on the hospitality industry.”
“We knew we had to assemble a first class line up of presenters, and we’ve certainly achieved that. Our speakers include celebrity chefs, international strategists, State and Federal politicians, expert marketers, television personalities, industry leaders and hospitality entrepreneurs.”
But it won’t be all business, with the Conference set to showcase some of Tasmania’s most celebrated hospitality providers.
“We’ll be throwing an unforgettable party at Mona, celebrating Hobart’s finest restaurants, and providing many other social opportunities for delegates to exchange ideas with their hospitality industry colleagues from across the country.”
The Conference will aim to appeal to the broad spectrum of hospitality industry professionals, with keynote presentations, workshops and panel sessions focusing on the themes of profitability, people, and best practice.
“Whether they are in the business of running a local hotel, making great coffee, operating a restaurant, or providing accommodation, the Australian Hospitality Conference will be a memorable and highly valuable experience for all delegates,” Mr Old said.
Registrations for the Conference are open online at www.hospitalityconference.com.au, where the full program and presenter details may be viewed.
