“Hotel Inspector” Alex Polizzi to open Annual Hotel Conference 2014

UK: Hotelier and star of TV’s The Hotel Inspector Alex Polizzi will be the keynote speaker at the AHC in Manchester.

The AHC will take place on the 15th & 16th October at the Hilton Deansgate Hotel, Manchester. The day and a half event will be opened by Alex Polizzi in a key note speech followed by a Q&A session on the afternoon of Wednesday 16th October.

Polizzi comes from a long line of hoteliers – her mother is the hotel designer Olga Polizzi; Sir Rocco Forte is her uncle and Lord Charles Forte, of Trusthouse Forte and Savoy fame, was her grandfather.

After reading English at Oxford University, Alex trained at the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong, worked for Marco Pierre White at the Criterion, helped open various Rocco Forte properties as the company began business and then set up Millers Bakery, with her husband Marcus Miller.

With her mother, she launched both Hotel Endsleigh in Devon and Hotel Tresanton in Cornwall.

Polizzi said: “I am passionate about customer services. Too often this vital aspect of hotel operations is not given the prominence it deserves. It permeates every aspect of hotel life and can be the difference between simply managing and exceeding customer’s expectations. Having the opportunity to join fellow independent hotel owners at The AHC will be a joy as we are all guilty of becoming so involved in the daily grind of running a hotel that we rarely gather to share our experiences, challenges and successes. I look forward to meeting you in October at The AHC.”
