Welcome to the Southern Branch

Welcome to the pages for the Southern Branch of the Institute of Hospitality. The branch supports members in Hampshire and Dorset and we aim to organise events and activities for networking, professional development, celebrating educational excellence and industry related business seminars. A further aim is to work with and support local industry related government and non-government organisation for the betterment of our members.

The committee is working on an exciting schedule of events for the coming year to engage with and invigorate our members.  The committee look forward to working with members to arrange regional events in order to encourage three core objectives;

1.            To support, develop and build fellowship amongst the IoH members within the Hampshire and Dorset area and with neighbouring branches.

2.            To promote and celebrate a professional Hospitality and Tourism industry.

3.            To promote and celebrate excellence in Hospitality and Tourism education.

We welcome members and guests to our events and you will find that we are a friendly group of industry professionals. Please take a look at the Southern Branch events.  We are sure that you will find something of interest and we look forward to extending to you a warm and hospitable welcome.
