By Denis Sheehan FIH: Expanded IoH Golf Day 2024 now open for dinner.
The Institute of Hospitality (IoH) in recent years has been reborn, hatching initiatives that thrive, fuelling membership, camaraderie, and influence.
This is perhaps best illustrated through the IoH’s aspiration to become the first and only Chartered Institute in the history of the hospitality and catering industry, thanks to the support of many people across the industry.
Expanding to ensure the institute is relevant to everyone within hospitality, as witnessed through the appointment of a dedicated head of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Dorothea Jones MIH MA FIEDP.
All organisations of course grow through new members joining, and as important as any are the young ones making their way into our industry. In July 2021, Robert Richardson FIH, Chief Executive, of the Institute of Hospitality created the IoH’s first ever Youth Council.
The Youth Council is now a well-established part of the IoH, not only attending IoH events but creating their own, welcoming young people making their way into our industry and making it easier for them to navigate.
To fuel the work done throughout the year by the Youth Council funds are raised at another initiative created by Richardson in 2021, the Institute of Hospitality Golf Day.
The golf day not only raises funds for the Youth Council it provides another opportunity for members of the Youth Council to make contact with and grow their network of connections with more people across our industry.
Following the recent IoH theme of thriving, the golf day for 2024 is also expanding. The event will again take place at The Belfry, and for 2024 The Wishaw Suite will be base for the day, and host dinner in the evening for 130 guests.
We spoke with Robert Richardson FIH, Chief Executive, Institute of Hospitality and asked him to set the scene for 2024, he told us: “We were delighted when we learned from The Belfry that The Wishaw Suite was available for 2024. In previous years our golf days have been full, which of course was great, but we knew others wanted to join the day, and evening, to celebrate the work done by the Youth Council and help raise funds to support their vital work.
“There are a few four-ball teams left to play on the day, and we can now take bookings just for dinner for those that don’t play, but also don’t want to miss an incredibly enjoyable evening that helps young members of our Institute flourish.”
A Four-Ball Team including two buggies, a sausage roll and a drink at the halfway house, and a three-course dinner in the evening is £1,195 + VAT.
Joining the event for dinner is £85 + VAT per person.
