The ACA moves its Excellence Awards to Brighton
The Air Charter Excellence Awards will take place on Thursday 14 October, and will be held in the Oxford Suite at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, Brighton, the largest residential conference centre in the U.K.
Winning an ACA Excellence Award is a distinction indeed.

The Air Charter Association (The ACA) has announced an update for its annual Air Charter Excellence Awards, with a new date and change to the planned venue. The venue originally confirmed for the event has been selected by the U.K. government as one of the dedicated COVID quarantine hotels and is therefore unable to host the event this year.

The association has instead opted for a new venue in the seaside resort and city of Brighton. The Air Charter Excellence Awards will now take place a week earlier than planned, on Thursday 14 October, and will be held in the Oxford Suite at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, Brighton, the largest residential conference centre in the country. The venue offers excellent facilities and has many original Victorian features. It has a large capacity to cater for The ACA's fast-growing membership with ample space to accommodate any social distancing requirements.

ACA chair Kevin Ducksbury says: “We are really excited to hold our Excellence Awards event in Brighton, with some key changes to the traditional format, bringing a valuable and truly memorable evening to our members. With the hotel-based location and new evening gala dinner format, guests will be able to stay at the Hilton Metropole or one of many excellent hotels close by. Located on the seafront, the hotel is accessed quickly by train from London Gatwick airport, London Bridge and London Victoria stations.”
