Our History

Our History


Starting life as the Conference and Hospitality Show, CHS Events was born in 2010 in Leeds, and our flagship event CHS Leeds continues to go from strength-to-strength with event profs, exhibitors and partners returning year-on-year to meet and network at the North of England’s only show for our sector.


2018 saw the launch of our unique Inspirational Venue Roadshows (IVR), our intimate networking events which showcase the very best venues from across the UK. The highly curated format and experience based programme continues to be hugely popular and we now run 6+ per year to meet demand.


CHS Birmingham was launched, in partnership with the ICC Birmingham and the Birmingham and West Midlands Convention Bureau. Harnessing the power of the Midlands as a key location for the events industry the show attracts event professionals, agents and corporate event planners, PAs and EAs, Birmingham has already become a major player in the industry event calendar.

2023 and beyond…

2023 has bought a new and exciting element to the CHS brand, with the launch of ‘The Edit by CHS’. This new multi-channel digital platform brings another dimension to how we support event professionals by focusing on lifestyle and personal development.

We’re with you on your journey of personal and personal growth…
