A review of 2019 and what's to come in 2020

  • 7th January 2020

Here at CHS we’ve been reflecting on all of the changes we’ve gone through in 2019 and feeling very grateful. Emma Cartmell, CEO at CHS Group tells us what she is looking forward to in 2020. 



We know it can be hard to keep track of everything so here’s a summary of what’s changed, what’s new, and what we’re grateful for…

London MICE Forum

We launched our first London Event – the London Mice Forum. Taking place on 5th Feb at the Millennium Gloucester, followed by a party at Chelsea Football Club.  We have some fantastic buyers signed up and ready to meet hotels and venues from around the UK

Our FIRST CHS Birmingham

We launched a sister show to CHS Leeds. CHS Birmingham will take place at the ICC on 27th October 2020.  The launch has been very well received by the industry, with almost 30% of the space being allocated within the first month!

Introduction to Appointments

CHS Leeds and CHS Birmingham will now be appointment led shows – giving our exhibitors even more ROI for their investment.

Re-vitalising IVRs

We’re also re-invigorating our Independent Venue Roadshows for 2020 – the new look IVR’s will be announced soon!

And don’t worry, we’re still going to be taking stand partners to The Meetings Show in 2020, and we have great plans for the CHS Awards that take place at the ICC in Birmingham on the 18th June.

New bright-sparks joined team CHS!
