Best Western Goes North! Events Producer Ellie Kilsby talks us through how our Events Team delivered Best Western’s Annual Members Conference

This year, The Best Western Annual Members Conference took place at the Radisson Blu in Glasgow. This is our 6th year of doing the conference and we always look forward to it; beating the post-winter blues, often facing snow, and getting stuck in to the 2 day conference, culminating in a themed Gala Dinner and Awards.


Throughout the rig and the show we worked closely with Best Western’s internal presenters and external keynote speakers to ensure the daytime conference ran seamlessly. Amongst the opportunities were filming and editing a highlights video onsite, ready for the closing presentation, and a 2 hour room turnaround for the Gala Dinner, including rehearsing the entertainment!

After a 4 course meal, and the infamous ‘Best Western Hotel of the Year Awards’ (making full use of our bespoke animated awards stings), the Red Hot Chilli Pipers provided a modern twist on traditional Scottish entertainment and got the delegates clapping and waving their sporrans, whilst the Zig Zag band kept everyone dancing until dawn.

Another successful Annual Members Conference complete, we could now rest easy and enjoy the hotel!
