Grange Hotels is delighted to be hosting the British Hospitality Association’s (BHA) fifth Hospitality & Tourism Summit, which will be held at our Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in central London on 27th June 2016.
Following the success of last year’s Summit, which saw 600+ attendees welcomed to London for a full day of networking with the ‘who’s who’ of hospitality, the 2016 Summit will once again provide the perfect opportunity to meet with, and learn from, other key members of the industry.
The theme for this year’s Summit is ‘connectivity’ – a topic which becomes increasingly prevalent as we approach the EU referendum, which takes place four days prior to the event.
As London’s leading independent hotels, we understand the importance of connectivity, both inside and outside of our brand.
Tony Matharu, Grange Hotels’ Managing Director, comments: “In a world of constant and often unexpected change, it is essential to listen and learn from your peers and to connect with clients, professional achievers and suppliers. At Grange Hotels, we are delighted to be able to host the 2016 Summit, and to commit to fostering learning, understanding and connection with our hospitality colleagues.”
The British Hospitality Association has highlighted that this year’s theme of connectivity does not only relate to the business, but also the individual; valuing everyone equally regardless of race, gender, sexuality, disability or background. This is something which is particularly close to our hearts here at Grange hotels, as we employ thousands of staff members from every corner of the globe.
As hosts of the 2016 Summit, we are looking forward to welcoming hundreds of other leading brands and figures in the hospitality industry through our doors on 27th June for another jam-packed day of stimulating debates and discussions, plus the ever-popular ‘Networking xPress’ 60-minute ice breaker and evening reception.
With over 3 million people currently working in hospitality and tourism in the UK, referred to by the BHA as ‘game changers’, the Summit facilitates both the organisation’s and Grange Hotels’ commitment to improving and shaping the future of the industry, and we are honoured to work together with BHA to pursue this mission.
