HBAA Chair to develop future talent for the sector

The Hotel Booking Agents Association’s (HBAA) new chair, Chris Peacock, says his key objectives for 2012 are to develop future talent for the sector.
 
Speaking at the associations annual dinner in front of 400 senior agents, Peacock said: “The scope of university degrees in our sector is wide and, as an association, we should be supporting the industry by helping students get the best start they can.
 
“Our under-graduate scheme for those who need to find an industrial placement will be 12 months long and offer the quality of training that the HBAA has become synonymous with. Placements will be hosted by hotel booking agencies, hotels or venues and over 30 companies have already registered interest in 2012’s summer intake.”
 
In addition to the HBAA National Placement Scheme Peacock also outlined strengthening ties with the corporate market through a series of initiatives including a corporate forum.  He also announced The Royal National Lifeboat Institution as his chosen charity for the association’s fundraising activities in 2012.
 
The Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 was host to the HBAA’s headline networking event.
