About Us

A new concept in global hospitality and tourism partnership

Formed in 2014, this organisation seeks to establish a global conversation and network to enhance experiential learning within the hospitality, tourism and events sector through

  1. Establishment of a global network structure to support working across all industry sectors and levels of education.
  2. Provision of valuable face to face networking events each year creating opportunities for stakeholder engagement.
  3. Creation of a hub that stimulates research of practical value about work based learning and employability.
  4. Provision of a live portal to access innovative, inspirational and useful resources for supporting work based learning.

FLIGHT Hospitality is a new and growing organisation so with your help we aim to

  1. Develop a robust, identifiable and sustainable structure which complies with UK charitable status guidelines.
  2. Achieve financial security and strength to provide support for developing leadership in industry
  3. Develop a credible brand that is recognised globally by both education and industry
