Welcome to the Midlands Branch

The key role for the Institute in the Midlands is to provide help, support and guidance for our members, students and business leaders in the hospitality industry.

By doing so we aim to help them develop and function even better – so helping the businesses to thrive and the local economy to grow.

Your Midlands Branch offers a range of events and activities to support your professional development and networking.

Watch | On 17 November 2020 the branch held a Q&A session with Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands. A recording of the meeting is available now on the Branch’s YouTube channel. The discussion covers the impact of the ongoing restriction on hospitality, the support available and the future of the industry.

Watch | On 19 January 2021 the branch met with Kate Nicholls OBE FIH, CEO of UKHospitality. A recording of the meeting is available on our YouTube channel. 

Watch | On 5 March 2021 the branch held a careers panel discussion called Mise en Place : Work Ready. You can watch a recording of the event on our YouTube Channel.
