We have a clear vision for the future and are confident that, in collaboration with our members and partners, we will achieve our goals.  But don’t just take our word for it.  Here’s what other members of our community have to say about the BHA.


Hospitality is one of this country’s biggest and fastest growing industries and a tremendous asset to UK plc.  The BHA plays an important role in getting the voice of hospitality heard, showcasing and supporting the great work that we do to provide jobs, skills and careers for millions.”  Patrick Dempsey OBE, Former Managing Director, Whitbread Hotels & Restaurants


We have to work together to get things done in our industry; and the BHA is helping us achieve that.  We’ve seen meaningful reform on visas last year and of course we want to see more – on VAT and recognition of the importance of our sector in general.  We can only achieve that through collective action and coming together with one voice.” Stephen McCall, Chief Operating Officer UK&I and Head of Europe Operations Performance and Support, InterContinental Hotels Group


We applaud the BHA’s continued efforts in helping shape the future of the hospitality industry.  Government and industry working together is essential to increasing our global competitiveness in areas such as visa reform, infrastructure development and investment in young people, to ensure the UK remains best in class.  The BHA’s initiatives, which are closely aligned to our own business priorities in this area, are key to protecting and promoting our industry’s best interests.”  Simon Vincent, Hilton Worldwide
