Chair of BHHA, Mark Jones

Hoteliers meet to discuss key Tourism topics

The Brighton & Hove Hotels Association are holding their first meeting for 2008 at the Ambassador in New Steine on Tuesday 12 February - and key tourism topics are on the agenda.

Ongoing topics for discussion with the tourism sector include the future of the Brighton Centre and the conference diary, new developments in the city, visitor numbers, and the recent increase in hotel bed spaces, to name but a few.

Monthly meetings are open to all members of the BHHA. Traditionally a number of members have become regular attendees and contribute to the future success of the hospitality industry, and some have subsequently been elected to the Executive Committee of the Association.

The Chair of the BHHA, Mark Jones is hopeful that more members might be able to give some time in this way, and will consider attending either the forthcoming meeting on the 12th, or any future ones - held usually on the second Tuesday of the month at 2 pm.

Current topics or questions for discussion include the following:

  • What plans are in place to keep visitor numbers at current levels once the Brighton Centre closes?
  • How do we maintain the conference programme during that closure?
  • How can we increase/improve the marketing of the city over the 'lean' period we may face?
  • What progress on the development on the Brighton Centre, i360, Marina, King Alfred, Ice Arena?
  • How can the tourism industry best support the city's employment needs?

These topics are relevant to the future success of all accommodation providers in the city, as individual businesses and as a sector.

Mark Jones is keen to meet all of the BHHA members during the course of the year, and said "If you are interested in contributing to discussions on the above, come along. It is the best way of hearing about, and contributing to, the key issues affecting us and our businesses, whether large city issues, or smaller ones affecting you in your day to day business."
