Seminar highlights

The extensive seminar schedule across both days of the show features experts from a wide range of specialisms sharing top tips and advice for start-ups and existing businesses. Across both the Keynote Theatre programme – sponsored by and Hoseasons – and the Seminar Theatre – sponsored by Maxxton – you can hear from dozens of industry experts across 140 sessions.

Speakers this year include Luke Hansford from, who will share valuable insight on how to maximise your income through holiday letting. Don’t miss Ibraheem Dulmeer from Holiday Parks Law explaining the intricacies of Holiday Park Law – a session not to miss.

“We’ll share the latest industry trends and present real-life case-studies from landowners who we’ve helped make a profit from diversifying into holiday letting,” says Luke.  “Whether you have years of experience or are just considering taking the plunge into holiday letting, our market insight can be valuable for everyone.”

Gillian Hare and Brodie Farrow of will reflect on post-pandemic trends.

“Rather than representing a one-off peak, the pandemic kickstarted a legacy of outdoor holidaying that will continue to benefit the industry for years to come,” says Gillian. “We’ll talk about emerging trends and provide tips on how you can successfully ride the new wave of outdoor tourism, including case studies from those that have been there and done it.”

Other speakers include Dawn Bee from Netguides, who will discuss the benefits of booking system data analysis, Andreas Kuesters of Wibit Sports will share how their water-based sports parks have provided great returns all over the world, and Tom Foster of Stemy Energy will discuss the hot topic of electricity consumption, and how to monetise flexible energy use.
