The Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport will take questions from the delegates as part of his address which will focus on the role of the hospitality industry in the UK and the current and future Government initiatives of relevance to the sector.
"The Government is committed to working with the hospitality industry to facilitate better conditions, remove unnecessary regulations and encourage more people into the sector," Hunt said. "Attending The AHC will allow me to meet the people at the very heart of the UK’s hospitality industry and I look forward to joining you in October."
The 2012 Annual Hotel Conference will take place from 3-4 October at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate hotel and Jonathan Langston, chairman of the AHC, said he was pleased Hunt would join Neville in attending. "The hospitality industry is a key sector for the UK and the inclusion of Mr Hunt at the conference demonstrates the Government is serious about the UK’s hospitality and tourism industry being of a world-class standard."
