About the event:

Now celebrating its sixth year, CHS Leeds provide UK hotels and venues with a fantastic opportunity to showcase their facilities. CHS Leeds, formally known as The Conference and Hospitality Show, is the event for Event Planners, Agents, Venue Finders and EAs/PAs. Over the last 10 years, this flagship event in Leeds has been hosting outstanding hotels, venues and event suppliers as well as attracting the best event planners and buyers from around the UK. They run an awards ceremony each year too, which are designed to be accessible for all types of hotels and venues, allowing both large brands and even the smallest independent venue to be recognised for an aspect, service or feature of their property or service.

2020 will see the awards ceremony host over 21 awards categories at the first direct Arena, with the aim of championing venues and suppliers of excellence across a variety of disciplines.
