Leigh also emphasized that HBAA is committed to investigating subjects, which are bolstered by the code of practice, The Tour Operators’ Margin Scheme (“TOMS”), small meeting efficiency and accommodation tax. This has been welcomed by as small meetings are also key to the growth of the UK MICE industry.

According to Leigh “Change isn’t an event, it is a process. We are on a journey to progress HBAA onto a more strategic agenda and engage on bigger issues and get a “causethat unifies hotels, apartments, venues and agencies.”

Finally the HBAA Chairman expressed her satisfaction to lead the Association together with Louise Goalen from Ashfield Meetings & Events during 2016 and 2017. Likewise she anticipated her enthusiasm in attending the next ‘HBAA Members Meeting’ on 15th March at Leicester Tigers.
