Liverpool Hoteliers Association become members of British Hospitality AssociationLiverpool Hoteliers Association have become members of the prestigious British Hospitality Association.
For over 100 years, the BHA has acted as the leading representative organisation in the hospitality industry, representing hotels, restaurants and food service providers. Its aim is to deliver returns for their members and positively champion the industry’s priorities through partnerships with government and other associations and organisations.
Mike Dewey, general manager of Hard Days Night Hotel and chairman of Liverpool Hoteliers Association, said the benefits of joining the national ‘movement’ within the hospitality sector were numerous, as ‘the BHA provides training and advice on how to lobby within local parliament as well as address Westminster and Whitechapel on members’ behalf’.
He said: “We are delighted to announce this new membership to the BHA. As a national association they provide vital training and support within the industry and also focus on both local and regional issues, which are very important to us as hoteliers. They are then able to address them with campaigns, forums and political support with local MPs.”
By addressing both locally and nationally the areas of employment, economy, regulation, sustainability and health, the BHA provides long-term and effective business solutions. Mike added: “This will help us to build a stronger relationship between our two groups, which is vital in the current economic climate. It is only when we understand and work together on our mutual concerns and challenges, that we can then address them.”
LHA has membership across many of the city’s key hotels and apartments, providing profile and representation in key forums.
“In collaboration with each other”, added Mike, “we can make a positive difference to each of the businesses involved and to the City of Liverpool’s reputation as a destination.”
