Hospitality Quarterly Magazine – Third Quarter 2019

HQ Magazine is the Institute of Hospitality’s exclusive membership publication. For our cover story ‘Will we learn our lesson?’ we consider to what degree hospitality education is buckling under pressure and look at what can be done to change current education trends.

Afternoon Tea
A timeless tradition in hotels, but why does afternoon tea continue to pull in the crowds? We asked some of the experts why they feel so compelled to offer afternoon tea at their hotels. Hear from The Dorchester, Corinthia Hotel London, K West Hotel & Spa, The Savoy, The Berkeley, The Ritz London and Nobu Shoreditch.

How to Start a Street Food Business
The UK street food market is big business and growing at a much greater rate than the total fast-food market. Read our feature on how to start your own street food business.

Cyber Security
Many businesses in the hospitality sector have suffered the consequences of mistakenly assuming that their IT provider is also looking after their cyber security, when in almost every case, they are not. We explain the differences between the two different functions.

Also in this issue:

  • Meet our new president, Surinder Arora FIH, Founder and Chairman of The Arora Group
  • Adam Rowledge FIH explores why people come to work and how employers need to think differently in order to attract and retain the best talent.
  • Guy Hilton FIH shares memories of his whirlwind tour of Hope & Glory’s trusted tea gardens in Sri Lanka.
  • Hospitality Action – a look at the work of the charity and how IoH members can help and get involved.
  • The cost of talent management in the restaurant trade – Christian Brondum, CEO of Planday, looks at the challenges faced by the restaurant sector.
  • Joe Youssef, EVP of corporate development at Amadeus Hospitality considers whether the the fully-automated hotel is the future of hospitality.
