DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel West Edmonton

Aspire is a one-day professional development event for housekeeping, front office, human resources, and administration supervisors and managers. It’s an affordable way for hotels to invest in their employees with practical training, professional development, and networking opportunities … and to reward them with a bit of fun!

There will also be plenty of time for networking and opportunities to learn about some of the newest hospitality products and services at our vendor showcase. Plus, join with the AHLA in celebrating recipients of the Housekeeping Award and Employer of Choice designation at our Awards Gala.

Attendees will:

  • Return to their hotel with learnings they can immediately apply on topics such as:
    • Effective recruitment, hiring, and termination practices
    • Occupational Health & Safety legislation
    • Cybersecurity
    • Skills for new or first-time supervisors and managers
  • Be celebrated for the hard work they provide for their hotels and guests
  • Return to their hotels engaged, energized, and inspired

Safety Summit

Attend the AHLA’s Safety Summit on April 21 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel West Edmonton!

The AHLA’s Safety Summit features two training sessions for anyone in the hospitality industry focused on providing a safe and healthy work environment. Attending these sessions will increase your understanding of mental health injuries in the workplace, and will help you implement an effective health and safety management program that will save your company time and money.

The summit takes place the day after Aspire, in the same location, giving your staff the opportunity to attend both events during the same trip to Edmonton!

The cost to attend is $125 for AHLA safety subscribers and $200 for non-safety subscribers. (A safety subscriber is any property classified under the WCB code 87503, Hotels & Convention Centres). If you are unsure if you are a safety subscriber, please contact the AHLA office at 780.436.6112.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
