Lloyd & Laura Attend Annual Hoseasons Conference

This week, Lloyd and Laura have been in Newport, Wales for the annual Hoseasons conference.

This event has a fantastic reputation in the industry and we were absolutely blown away by the precise organisation and obvious effort that has gone into this conference.

Day 1: We arrived at the legendary Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales at 2pm and made our way to our AMAZING room! We even had a balcony!

We checked in with the Hoseasons team and got to grips with our schedule for the coming days. We set up our stand and then got changed ready for the evening exhibitor function.

The function was in the conference room on the very bottom floor of the hotel and there were about 50 stands. The evening function was amazing and we met some really interesting people. We chatted to some park owners, and most of the exhibitors, and we all enjoyed canapes and drinks between 6-9pm.

Day 2: It was an early start on day 2 and the conference was in full swing when we reached our stand. The park owners enjoyed a day full of interesting speakers and mingling with the exhibitors.

At 3pm, the exhibitors took down all of their stands and got ready for the evening gala and awards ceremony. It's fair to say, it was a fantastic evening. The music was spot on, the food delicious, the company fantastic. The awards ceremony began and, finally, this year's MC was announced. Michael McIntyre!! And what a host he was. Sooo funny.

The awards ceremony finished around 11pm and it was time to mingle! We managed to have a proper catch up with a few suppliers that we hadn't seen in ages, which was lovely!

The band played in the background as people chatted, danced, drank and, at 2am, snacks were served!

We rolled into bed at 2.30am but we heard a lot of the conference made it until the early hours! We had a long drive back to Leicestershire, so we tried to be sensible...

It was a fantastic experience and we are so honoured to have been invited to this conference. Hoseasons have been a delight to work with and we are so excited to be in partnership with them - We can't wait until next year!
