HBAA announce executive committee for 2011

Just as Hotel Insight covered earlier in the week when HEDNA announces their board of directors for 2011, the HBAA (Hotel Booking Agents Association) announced their executive committee for 2011.

Juliet takes the reigns as chair of the association from Stephen Usher and will oversee a new executive committee line up throughout 2011.  The HBAA represents the interests of parties involved in the procurement and management of conference, meetings and accommodation in the UK and internationally.  It has an annual buying power in excess of £4.7bn per annum and is recognised by corporates as the benchmark of quality and integrity.

Juliet will develop the HBAA’s strategy as well as overseeing the executive committee members:

Vice Chair – Chris Peacock, Conference Care

Executive Director – Peter Ducker

Treasurer – Stephen Usher, House of Usher

Venue Chair – Ian Leat, Marriott

Venue Vice Chair – Ian Jones, De Vere

Academy Committee Chair – Ellis Salsby

Events Committee Chair – Jill Fleming, Absolute Corporate Events 

Technology Innovation and Environment Committee Chair – Trevor Elswood, BSI

Marketing Committee Chair – Andrew Deakin, Conference Care

Membership Committee Chair – Chris Parnham, Zibrant

Meetings Committee Chair – Jayson Hodgkinson, Venue Choice

Special Projects – Sue Burgess, Inntel and Steve Ockerby, LVS Events

 Apartments Sector – Ricky Kapoor, Hotelworld

Juliet Price said, “The HBAA has come to the fore for its tireless work in promoting best practices and advising on government legislation such as TOMS and The Bribery Act. 2011 will see the UK’s business travel market continue to turn a corner and we are gearing up for the UK being on the global stage as a tourism and business travel destination with the Royal Wedding, Diamond Jubilee and of course the 2012 Olympic Games”.
