Welcome to the Sussex Branch

The Institute of Hospitality Sussex Branch supports members in both East and West Sussex and neighbouring counties and seeks to offer a range of events to support your professional development and networking within the Sussex hospitality, leisure and tourism industries. Our friendly and welcoming committee represents all sectors within the industry and comprises of members with a wealth of, and diverse range of experience.

As an educational charity, our primary focus as a branch is to continue to promote Hospitality within Sussex by assisting and encouraging young talent in to the industry and supporting all hospitality professionals in their career development from students, graduates and junior team members all the way through to management, general management and beyond. Through this we aspire to help businesses within the area thrive and raise the profile of Sussex hospitality.

We are supporting this through two main objectives:

1) Facilitating and building strong relationships between industry and education, working closely with education and training providers in the area to support them and young people considering careers in the industry.

2) Supporting members through the provision of a diverse range of events and activities some of which jointly with other related professional bodies, charities, suppliers and organisations all designed to support and add value in terms of professional development and networking opportunities.

Above all, we rely on the participation and engagement of our valued Institute members within the area and beyond which can be achieved by joining the Sussex Branch Committee in their upcoming events and activities we provide and working with us to organise them. We very much welcome industry sponsors and partnerships; you too can showcase your company by sponsoring our events, please do get in contact for further information.
