Welcome to the Hong Kong Branch


The setting up of a Hong Kong Branch enhance greatly to the value of the Institute for the Hong Kong members who will be able to better network with their peers within the region to everyone's mutual benefit.  With the establishment of the Institute of Hospitality Hong Kong Branch, a Secretariat of the Branch has been set up in Hotel ICON.

Hotel ICON is a very special hotel with an equally special purpose: Not only does it embody all the creative energy and spirit of Hong Kong, it’s “learning environment” on which the aspirations of future hoteliers come to life as part of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and an extension of its School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM).

I hope to see you in our Branch events soon.
