UK Hospitality CEO to speak at tourism event

Wednesday 26 January 2022

The CEO of UK Hospitality will be sharing her experiences of battling for her industry during the pandemic and business recovery when she visits Jersey next month.

Kate Nicholls will be speaking at the Jersey Hospitality Association’s lunch at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel on 18 February.

As Chief Executive, Kate Nicholls provides a voice for around 700 members, who collectively hold some 70,000 sites in the UK from big name restaurant chains to smaller boutique hotels.

She was awarded an OBE in January 2021 for services to the hospitality industry, particularly during the pandemic.

Claire Boscq, CEO of the Jersey Hospitality Association, said the JHA were thrilled to receive Ms Nicholls.

"As we have experienced in Jersey, UK hospitality businesses were forced to close during the pandemic, and it wasn't always clear to what extent businesses would be able to re-open," she said.

"Kate fought for those businesses to make sure they received support they needed and clarity on what the next steps were as the restrictions began to be lifted. She also shares our view that hospitality is one of the biggest engines of growth in the economy and needs effective representation when engaging the Government, the media, employees and customers."
