You’ve come to the right place to discover some GREAT hotels!

As hotels across Europe begin to reopen and hotels at home are preparing to do the same, our Virtual Hotel Showcase is back for a second edition with another stellar line-up of hotels for you to discover.

Focusing exclusively on hotels for events and incentives from our own collection and beyond, our second event showcases hotels in the UK and Europe.

Our aim is to equip you with information about new hotels to turbocharge your proposals as business begins to return.

By the end of it, you will have discovered:

  • one of the largest hotels for events in Amsterdam
  • a one-of-a-kind resort for exclusive hire in Portugal
  • a brand new British hotel, described by Condé Nast as the most exciting opening in the UK

The showcase will take place on Zoom and feature THREE short and engaging introductions delivered by the hotels and including time for questions, it will last around 45 minutes.
