A business association has launched an online charity auction.
The Hotel Booking Agents Association (HBAA) will run the auction until the first week of December following its Big Site Visit on 3-7 September.
HBAA invites participants to bid on a range of prizes including overnight and weekend stays, spa days and fine dining.
Each week the site will auction lots provided by HBAA member venues with proceeds between two industry foundations – Meeting Needs, which delivers life changing assistance to those in need both in the UK and overseas, and the HBAA Foundation which supports the development and retention of talent in the hospitality and meetings sector.
Highlights from the first week of the auction include two nights stay at the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort & Spa, two nights stay at the 5* Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria and a Beatles Story one night stay at Malmaison Liverpool.
Jacqui Kavanagh, HBAA chair said: “Following the success of the Big Site Visit, we’re very excited to announce the launch of our online auction. The generosity of our members never ceases to amaze and the range and quality of prizes we have on offer is incredible.
“Both Meeting Needs and the HBAA Foundation are crucial to improving lives as well as bolstering the development of our industry and we believe it is our responsibility to use our sector influence and networks to support such pivotal causes.”
