The Brighton & Hove Hotels Association AGM

The Brighton & Hove Hotels Association (BHHA) held their AGM in the elegant William 1Vth Room at the Brighton Pavilion on Tuesday 29 May 2007 at 6.30 pm.

At the 2007 AGM of the BHHA, Chairman Mark Jones gave a very positive message to Brighton’s hoteliers for the future of the local tourist industry with the following key factors:

  • Future extension of the Gatwick Express to Brighton
  • Ongoing conference programme though VisitBrighton
  • Potential shift to domestic breaks as climate change concerns take hold
  • The Brighton Eye and other key developments
  • Excellent quality of accommodation offered in Brighton

Mark emphasised the importance of the relationship that the Association has with VisitBrighton, working together to provide training and workshops on new legislation, information sharing, and ensuring availability of accommodation for the conference programme.

Last year the Association also requested a study of future demand and a recommendation on the supply of bed spaces in Brighton and this was commissioned by VisitBrighton – the results of which are available on the Council website:

Adam Bates, Head of Tourism, who was a guest at the AGM said: “There has never been a more important time for local hospitality businesses to work together and ensure that the changes we are experiencing in our City benefit everyone, including the guests of this vital sector of the local economy”.

”The BHHA has gone from strength to strength, influencing policy to ensure the future competitiveness of all hotels and guesthouses in the City. It is well-connected and able to make a real difference to the future prosperity of hundreds of local businesses”.

Membership to the BHHA is open to rated hotels and guest accommodations in Brighton and Hove. E-mail for further information.
