Independent Hotel Show 2016-2020

  • Emily Challis

Inspiring and informative, the Independent Hotel Show, is the UK's largest and best established business event in support of the luxury, boutique and independent hotel sector. A firm fixture in the calendar of independent hoteliers and industry professionals alike, the show presents a curated collection of over 300 innovative product and service providers together with expert insight from our Seminar Programme and multiple networking opportunities.

I started working on the Independent Hotel Show in 2015 as a freelance event manager and became the full-time event manager in 2017. I ran the event until March 2020.

As the event manager I held responsibility for:
  • Full budget responsibility
  • Creative developement of the event format
  • Commercial management
  • Comunity building
  • Cross functional team mangement
