We are hugely disappointed to announce that we have been forced to cancel the 2020 edition of The Annual Hotel Conference (AHC), which was scheduled to take place at the Manchester Convention Centre, Manchester UK, between the 21st - 22nd September 2020. Unfortunately, due to the on-going COVID-19 circumstances, we're not in a position to bring over 1,000 members of The AHC community together to learn, network and be inspired.


We're frustrated to be another email into your inbox with sad news but the health and safety of each of our attendees, partners, clients and employees is and always will be our top priority. The industry we are all proud to belong to has been devastated, yet over the last few months, we've witnessed extraordinary displays of solidarity from the hospitality industry and seen organisations use the time to draw breath, reflect and adapt to trends that have accelerated as a result of the pandemic. It has been an incredibly challenging period for us all, but we are filled with hope and optimism for the future. We look forward to welcoming you to The AHC 2021 which will take place on 27th and 28th September 2021.

If you have booked your place at The AHC 2020, you should have received an email with further details about your registration. Should you have any questions, please reach out to Peter Kealy, Delegate Sales Representative at [email protected].

We recognise that staying connected is more important now than perhaps ever before therefore we'd like to invite you to join us at our virtual event; The AHC Reimagined: Reconnecting UK Hospitality, which will take place on Thursday 8th October. The AHC Reimagined will include all the traditional elements of The AHC that place it firmly on the calendar for the UK hospitality industry but vitally, it will offer a chance for our sector which has suffered so greatly, to come together, to enjoy outstanding content and to connect with peers, network with colleagues and meet new partners. More information will be released over the coming weeks but we're hard at work creating a valuable and informative event with plenty of The AHC personality sprinkled throughout.
