Independent Hotel 12 will take place at Olympia in London and is due to feature some of the UK’s top CEOs, hotel gurus and managing directors. Hoteliers and guests will receive access to first hand expertise from a breadth of handpicked companies showcasing their latest useful products and ideas as well as having the opportunity to network and attend business sessions with industry experts.
