Generating growth and ensuring quality

by Ufi Ibrahim

We are living through one of the most critical and exciting times that our industry has ever seen. Despite difficult economic challenges, hospitality and tourism are bucking the national trend. [more...]

A united effort is needed to ensure government listens to what the hospitality industry needs

by Ufi Ibrahim

The UK hospitality and tourism industry comprises internationally renowned businesses and a fantastic variety of small enterprises. Together we contribute some 8% to the total GDP – that's around £115 billion per annum. [more...]

Visa reforms are crucial for continued growth

by Ufi Ibrahim

Theresa May announced that she'd be restructuring the UK Border Authority (UKBA) – this should be applauded. The need to reform the UK's visa procedures so that they are less expensive and more straightforward is absolutely critical to continued growth. [more...]

Join us for The Big Conversation

by Ufi Ibrahim

Youth employment is one of the BHA’s central campaign areas and our research shows that the industry has the potential to create over 200,000 jobs in the UK by 2015. [more...]

Alook ahead at 2013

by Ufi Ibrahim

As we look ahead to the new year, I want to start by taking a last look back at 2012 and then move forward to set out the BHA’s ambitions for 2013. [more...]

A level playing field for hospitality SMEs

by Ufi Ibrahim

Outsourcing has come to the fore in the last month with a report by the BHA and the Food Service Consultants Society International which encourages the government to enable companies in the food and service management sector to compete more easily on a level playing field for public service contracts. [more...]

Lowering VAT would increase the UK's competitiveness

by Ufi Ibrahim

As we approach the end of the year, the Campaign for Reduced Tourism VAT, is stepping up its work. In today's global tourism market, the current rate of 20 per cent VAT undermines UK tourism's ability to compete effectively. [more...]

Hospitality - one of the UK's growth sectors

by Ufi Ibrahim

The recent Channel 4 production Hotel GB may not have been to everyone's taste and certainly seemed to be more interested in its celebrity guests than providing any real illustration of a career in the hotel industry. It did, however, highlight that the hospitality industry can offer good jobs to the young unemployed - no matter how unskilled - as long as the will to work is there. [more...]

VAT and visa system still issues for tourism

by Ufi Ibrahim

We have a new minister for tourism as a result of the recent Cabinet reshuffle. While we regret the departure of John Penrose, who for the last two years has been a great supporter of the industry, we welcome Hugh Robertson, his former colleague who, in addition to his responsibilities for sport, now takes on the tourism portfolio. [more...]

Leaving an Olympic legacy for the sector

by Ufi Ibrahim

When International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge applauded British hospitality in his speech at the Olympics' Closing Ceremony, he rounded off a fortnight in which the country's warm welcome was a major talking point for athletes and visitors. [more...]

Our sector can help the young and jobless

by Ufi Ibrahim

How can the hospitality industry help the young unemployed? By providing jobs and training. It is one of the very few industries in the UK creating jobs, apprenticeships, placements and career opportunities. [more...]

Summit yields need for industry strategy

by Ufi Ibrahim

Following the Hospitality and Tourism Summit at the InterContinental London Park Lane, it's clear a new strategy is needed to unlock the industry's job-creating potential. [more...]

Summit to underline hospitality sector's contribution

by Ufi Ibrahim

This is an exceptional year for UK tourism. During the London 2012 Games, the UK will play host to visitors from all over the world ? including 30,000 journalists reaching out to more than 4 billion viewers worldwide. [more...]

New tourism campaign offers a GREAT platform

by Ufi Ibrahim

With the summer approaching, hoteliers and other hospitality operators are turning their thoughts to the coming season, dominated as it is by the Olympic Games in late July and August. [more...]

Olympic demand applies to all sectors

by Ufi Ibrahim

Claims that London hotel rooms during the Olympic Games are overpriced are now appearing in national newspapers, but it's surely not surprising that the capital's hotel rates are at a premium level when the world's largest sporting event comes to town? [more...]

Tourism sector to win from the 2012 Games

by Ufi Ibrahim

In January, there was much said in the media when the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) released 8,000 of the 40,000 London hotel rooms it had allocated for the Games period. [more...]
