Consortium Venues of Excellence (VOE) has announced that it has become a strategic partner of the Institute of Hospitality (IOH).

Executive director of the VOE, Mandy Jennings (pictured), said: “VOE value the importance of their alliances with key industry partners, who all play a crucial role in the strategic development of moving our consortia and brand forward.  We believe sharing best practices across organisations and becoming a Strategic Partner of the Institute will being benefits to our members and their teams, enhancing the relationship for all. 

Through the partnership, the VOE hopes to support the hospitality industry and it's membership through three key areas: sharing best practise; supporting learning and development; and helping bring recent graduates into the industry.

Peter Ducker FIH, chief executive of the IOH, said: “Our new arrangement with Venues of Excellence is a tremendous example of Industry organisations working together to improve knowledge and promote professionalism.  I believe that the Institute’s resources, publications, webinars and thought leadership will be of great value to their members, as they are for our 10500 industry practitioner members and 5000 student members.

VoE member venues have received information regarding the strategic partnership and both parties are looking at ways to work together to benefit both the membership and the hospitality industry.
