Working with RAW Charging: The Exclusive EV Charging Partner for the Hospitality Industry’s Leading Events

RAW Charging, a true leader in the UK’s EV charging infrastructure, is known for implementing its state-of-the-art Destination EV Charging facilities across various sectors. Partnerships with industry giants like Abrdn and Aviva have resulted in building economical and sustainable Rapid EV Charging Hubs.

Given RAW’s wealth of expertise and experience, particularly in the Hospitality sector, it is no surprise that the company is the exclusive EV Charging Partner for The AA Hotel & Hospitality Awards at Grosvenor House in London and The Annual Hospitality Conference in Manchester.

Each year, the latter hospitality conference takes place at Manchester Central Convention Centre, hosting over 1,000 delegates. With 90 high-profile industry speakers sharing their vision and insights, it is the perfect place to educate, network, and invest in the hospitality industry.


RAW Charging’s role at The AHC

As the exclusive partner at The Annual Hospitality Conference, RAW Charging plays a pivotal role in sharing its wealth of expertise within the hospitality sector. Its insights and know-how regarding achieving net zero, widening the appeal of hotels, and enhancing guest experience are invaluable.

RAW Charging will host a sponsored drinks event on the first evening of the conference. This event will provide attendees with a fantastic chance to get to know the RAW team, collect RAW-branded merchandise, and gain intimate one-on-one knowledge.

RAW’s CEO, Jason Simpson, works closely with The AHC and has a place on the advisory board. As the only EV charging supplier at the event, RAW Charging’s speaker slot presents an excellent opportunity for hoteliers and partners to benefit from the company’s unique perspective on green hospitality and learn how you can future-proof your business.

Jason says, “We are delighted to partner with The AHC for 2024. Having been a General Manager myself in the past, I know how important guest satisfaction is. For EV drivers to have a good night’s sleep, they need a great bed and the security that their car will be fully charged when they wake up in the morning.”

He continues, “By providing fully funded solutions with best-in-class technology and turnkey installation, we make sure that the hotel’s team also gets a great night’s sleep.”


How working with RAW Charging will benefit hospitality-based businesses.
