IH Directors’ Conference 2018

Sofia, Bulgaria
5-8 May 2018

The 2018 IH Directors' Conference will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria

The Directors’ Conference affords an opportunity for those who own or manage IH schools to invest time in their own personal development and leadership skills, hear from industry experts, and share their own knowledge with one another. It is also a time for celebrating the IH network, highlighting everything we have achieved in the previous year, and informing our strategy for the future.

Our 2018 conference will be held at the Grand Hotel Sofia, a hotel steeped in history with a picturesque location right in the heart of Sofia next to the pretty City Garden. We have negotiated a very reasonable room rate and there area also a number of very low cost options within walking distance.

Sofia, at the foot of Vitosha mountain, is the capital of Bulgaria. Compact compared to most, it's quick and easy to get around town by foot, metro or tram.  The conference and hotels are centrally located and 5 minutes from Vitosha Boulevard, the main pedestrianised area.

A number of 1, 2, and 3 day tour options will be organised by us if you wish to stay on after the conference or we can point you in the right direction if planning your own adventure. If you're planning to travel we have wineries, spas and great walking for a day or more.

Bulgaria is holding the EU presidency during the conference so we're expecting tons of cultural and music events which should be posted at https://www.inyourpocket.com/sofia.

Some quick facts: The weather will be sunny / around 15-20 C, Bulgarian cuisine is delicious, prices are low, entertainment is plentiful and the Lev's pegged to the Euro.

Our team is looking forward to welcoming you to our home.
