Welcome to the Cymru Branch

Following a consultation with members throughout Wales, the Institute of Hospitality Cymru Branch has been re-established, drawing committee membership from North, Mid and South Wales. Chaired by Dave Summers MIH, the new committee will provide the focus to respond to political and business initiatives.

As an educational charity, the Institute is involved in the promotion of hospitality as a career and raising the profile of the hospitality industry by supporting Wales as a country of choice for employment and business and as a destination for leisure, tourism and entertainment.

We support all hospitality professionals in their career development from hospitality students, graduates and junior managers just embarking on their career, through all management tiers to general management and directorship

We aim to organise events and activities for networking, professional development, awards and business seminars.

We believe that our new profile will help us contribute to meeting the challenges facing the hospitality and tourism industry in collaboration with other organisations in Wales. The new arrangements will provide an opportunity for greater networking and communication for Institute members and guests in the Principality, and the new Committee will look forward to working with members to arrange regional events to encourage this.

We seek to be inclusive in ensuring that all sectors of the industry throughout Wales benefit from our support and their participation. This includes suppliers, recruitment and HR organisations, charities and most importantly, support from training organisations, (public and private) for the continuous professional development of our members.

Most of all, however, we rely on the participation of our Institute members within Wales, which can be done by joining the Wales Branch Committee in the upcoming events and activities we provide. We always welcome industry sponsors. You can showcase your company by sponsoring our events, please contact me directly to find out more about the fantastic opportunities we have for you.
