DCMS Announce Tourism Industry Council

The Tourism Alliance has reported that at the BHA Hospitality and Tourism Summit today, Tourism Minister Helen Grant announced the establishment of a new Tourism Industry Council. The Council will be jointly chaired by Helen Grant, Matthew Hancock (Minister for Skills and Enterprise at BIS) and Simon Vincent from Hilton Worldwide.

The Council will comprise 22 members from across the Tourism industry and has a remit to improving skills, increasing the quality and quantity of jobs available and boosting enterprise in the tourism industry. One of the key themes will be for the Council to build on the work already announced by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills who earlier this year announced tourism and hospitality would be part of the trailblazers programme – an initiative designed to develop a clear and concise apprenticeship standards throughout many industries in the UK.

The Council will meet every 3-4 months with the first meeting on 10th July.
