Many BITA members are from construction and related industries, especially in London which hosts specialty Construction Networking Lunches. But there is a lot more to BITA than construction. We have members from nearly all industries; computing, retail, legal, finance, manufacturing, utilities and hospitality.
The newly formed Hospitality Division will be working with businesses that are already members of BITA that are working in the hospitality space, as well as actively recruiting new members from this industry. By working with some of the best businesses, and by leveraging our capital knowledge as a membership organisation, we aim to help smooth the bumps in the road for this beleagured industry.
The mission of the Hospitality Division is to focus on four main areas:
Ove the coming months, the Hospitality Division will be attending hospitality trade shows and business expos, as well as linking up with ready established chapters of BITA to run focused and fusion events for members in hospitality and other industries. They will be hosting networking events both online and face to face, for industry professionals to make the contacts they need to thrive.
As we learned from working with the construction industry, who benefitted hugely from the contacts that they make in marketing, IT, recruitment, insurance and more, so can our hospitality businesses benefit from our connections in the wider business community.
