Horwath HTL Confirms New Dates for ANZPHIC 2011 Conference

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 28 June 2011

Horwath HTL Australia has confirmed the revised dates of the ANZPHIC 2011 conference it hosts. The event was postponed last week due to travel chaos caused by ash from a volcano in Chile.

In an unprecedented move, the conference which is in its 11th year, together with a linked event, the Serviced Apartment Summit, both had to be postponed after airspace over Australia and New Zealand was closed due to volcanic ash that caused over 600 flights to be cancelled, affecting over 60,000 airline passengers.

The conference will now take place at the same venue, the Hilton Sydney, on 18 and 19 July 2011. The conference will follow the same format as originally scheduled, with the sessions being re-organized and presented as previous advertised.

John Smith, Managing Director of Horwath HTL Australia said, "The situation we suddenly faced less than 24 hours before the first of the two events was due to commence was a nightmare scenario, but once we established that no-one was able to predict when the skies would re-open, we had no choice but to re-schedule. Fortunately, we have been able to book new dates at the same venue and we have received an overwhelming level of support from our sponsors and delegates. So we are looking forward to welcoming the industry to the same two events, just three weeks after they were originally planned and as our theme this year declares Surfs Up!"
