NoVacancy Accommodation Business Expo announces new dates
National Media, the new owner of NoVacancy Accommodation Business Expo, has announced new dates for the first ever dedicated accommodation industry trade show.
Originally scheduled for the November 1 to 2 2017, the event will now take place in mid-2018, running July 17 to 18 2018 at ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre.
The date change reflects the overwhelming support for the show, giving more time for those from around the country – and even the world – to participate.
“Since announcing the acquisition of NoVacancy and our plans to transform the event into a large industry trade show, we have received significant recognition and an overwhelmingly positive response to the need for an industry event of this scale in Australia,” said event director, Mark Harvey.
“The industry has expressed tremendous support for our vision, however with the end of year fast approaching we recognise that additional lead time would be ideal for many who wish to be involved. By pushing the event into mid-2018, we are enabling not only additional suppliers to get involved but importantly, more time for owners, operators and their key staff to make plans to attend the event.”
“We acquired NoVacancy with the goal of creating a new kind of business event for accommodation industry that is groundbreaking in scale and standard. This vision has resonated strongly with the market, and rescheduling the event to July will enable us to meet this promise without compromise.” said Mr Harvey.
The APAC Revenue Management Summit was held at Rydges Melbourne 29-30 August: delegate numbers doubled the previous year’s attendance and the Summit attracted the support of over 20 partners.

An oh too familiar phone call received by the front desk of any accommodation provider is undoubtedly one that has been provoked by an unruly air conditioning remote. (Or, more likely, a guest’s inability to navigate said air conditioning remote.)
