About the British Hospitality Association

Established in 1907, the BHA is the national trade association for the hospitality industry. The BHA works for its members within government circles and beyond, promoting and protecting the interests of all operators in the industry - from the largest multi-national to the smallest independent. It ensures their voice is heard at local, national and international levels, influencing key industry decision makers and helping to shape policy and minimise the burden of new legislation. This work highlights to those in power the hospitality industry’s contribution to the UK economy. Patron Suppliers provide members with an ever-widening range of goods and services at prices which would not be possible for most individual members to obtain themselves.
