To amplify the collective voice of the hotel, accommodation and hospitality industry:



The Bournemouth Accommodation and Hotel Association has been representing the hotel and hospitality industry since January 2003. The Bournemouth Area Hospitality Association, as it was then known, was established after long discussions with the 3 hospitality associations that had been in existence for about 50years. We became one voice to work with the council, local groups and organisations to improve the environment, tourism, marketing and communications for the hospitality industry in Bournemouth.

In 2012, after research was carried out amongst members, the decision was made to update and change the name of the association, brand image and logo. We are proud to be contemporary and forward thinking and are constantly looking to improve our offer in order to further support our members.
