The conference and events arm of Butlin’s has become a member of events and hospitality association the HBAA.

Butlin’s Conference and Events, with resorts located in Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness, provides venues for large scale events.

They have run events for up to 1,600 delegates, including clients such as Virgin Atlantic, Holland & Barrett, Argos, Sainsbury’s and Sony.

The HBAA operates a code of practice to assure best practice between agents, hotels and venues.

The association has more than 300 member organisations including over 80 agency and 225 venue members.

Butlin’s Conference and Events agency sales manager Ellie Jones said: “I am a huge supporter of the HBAA and what the association stands for within the Mice industry.

“Having been both an agency member and venue member in my previous roles, there was no question about signing up Butlin’s to be members of the HBAA.

“With access to such a great support network of industry professionals, along with the many other benefits of being part of the HBAA, we look forward to a long and engaging relationship with the association.”

HBAA chairman Louise Goalen said: “It’s great that Butlin’s Conference and Events has joined the HBAA. I’d like to welcome them to the association and look forward to meeting many of the team at our future member events.”
