HBA Annual Conference and Awards


HBA Annual Conference &

National Hospital Radio Awards 2017


Bookings are now CLOSED for the HBA Annual Conference and the National Hospital Radio Awards.

Delegates can now pay their outstanding balances at our payment page.


The big event is being held over the weekend of 24th, 25th and 26th March 2017 at the Holiday Inn Bolton and promises to be a weekend packed full of networking, useful seminars and more.

Among the seminars currently being planned (subject to change, naturally) include a progamming seminar from BBC Wiltshire presenter Graham Seaman who proved popular at our conference in Bristol. Other seminars include how to better promote your station, whether a newsletter, social media or online. Plus how to engage fully with volunteers and, importantly, your Hospital Trust.

Around Bolton there are a wealth of visit opportunities, whether it;s a trip to Salford's Media City or one of the many Hospital Rado and Local Radio stations in the area. We'll hopefully have confirmation and a full list of visits early in the New Year.

This year, the National Hospital Radio Awards are being held at The Cloisters - a 16th Century converted church where the arches and stained glass will create a stunning background for the event. All conference residential delegates are guaranteed a seat at the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony.

The shortlist of nominations were revealed on January 1st. Good luck to all who entered.

Our Social Media sites, Facebook and Twitter will also announce details and carry news and information as plans develop.
