The Cranleigh Boutique brand’s founder and CEO, Stephen Hargreaves, is off to London! Following his continuing success with the marketing of the Cranleigh boutique (named the most romantic hotel in the UK in 2013), he has (understandably!) caught the eye of show organisers at the Independent Hotel Show and will be taking part in a seminar entitled: “Full booked – dream or reality”?
It’s a really high profile event and the session - which has been recommended for owners, operators and marketers - will be packed full of great, inspirational ideas and practical advice, to ensure maximum occupancy even in off peak times. Attendees will be provided with 20 sure-fire ways to fill their hotel's space, from social areas to rooms, all year round!
The show is taking place tomorrow, at Olympia, West London, and is the business event for the luxury, boutique and independent hotel industry! It’s a high quality exhibition of approximately 300 companies from across the hotel supply chain, a comprehensive free-to-attend business programme of seminars and workshops, multiple additional networking opportunities and an awards presentation celebrating the Independent Hotelier of the Year and Outstanding New Hotel. Attended by more than 6,500 hotel owners and operators, it’s the date not to be missed by any reputable UK hotelier!
Launched in 2012, The Independent Hotel Show presents a collection of the UK’s finest, most unique companies not typically seen at events, hand-picked to ensure they offer the high level of quality and breadth of products and services that luxury and boutique hotels require. This year, the show promises to be bigger, better and more targeted than ever before, providing a one-stop business platform for the luxury and boutique hotel industry.
We’re thrilled that Stephen is being recognised as an ‘expert’ in the industry and he’ll certainly be in good company when he takes to the stage with some other very famous hoteliers! The seminar will be chaired by Managing Director of Devonshire Hotels and Restaurants, Simon Rhatigan, Founder and Executive Chairman of the famous Mr & Mrs Smith brand, James Lohan, CEO of Wired Media, Tom Beasley and owner and Managing Director of Custard Communications, Petra Clayton. We can’t wait to hear what tips they come up with!
