In an exciting communications partnership, the British Hospitality Association and ITN Productions are producing a long-form current-affairs style programme, hosted by News Anchor Natasha Kaplinksy.
Drawing upon ITN’s 60-year heritage and expertise in storytelling, we will be exploring the dynamic and rapidly growing UK hospitality and tourism industry. In the wake of brexit, we will bring to life how this sector can thrive and has become a major attraction for international visitors. Not just the major cities but smaller locations around the UK are encouraging tourists and becoming a vital part of our visitor’s experience.
The programme will highlight how standards of hospitality must continue to rise and thrive to exceed customer expectations as well as exploring the latest technology and services being introduced to the industry to drive exceptional customer service, help the environment and act on customer feedback.
The Hospitality sector is the UK’s 6th largest contributor to export earnings and the 4th largest employer, with 4.49 million people choosing this sector to flourish their career. These remarkable stats are a reminder of how imperative this sector is to the younger generation and this programme will highlight the long and rewarding careers now on offer.
The programme will launch at The Hospitality and Tourism Summit 2017 on 6th June at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London. The programme will form part of a communications campaign featuring BHA members, professional partners as well as journalists, writers and bloggers.

Simon Shelley, Head of Industry News at ITN Productions said “ITN Productions is delighted to be partnering with the British Hospitality Association to explore this enormous industry that contributes vastly to the UK in earnings and employment, and examine how further growth could be achieved with support at such a crucial time."
We’re excited to embark on this project and engage with key organisations and people dedicated to shaping the future of hospitality.
