Discover Financial Services and the British Hospitality Association (BHA) are joining forces to share know-how, intelligence and expertise on the UK market, as well as technological advancements and any industry developments with all BHA members and the wider hospitality community.
As part of the agreement with the BHA, Discover Financial Services will serve as a thought leader on various topics around hospitality and UK travel trends by leveraging insights across the Discover Global Network.
Discover will also be a sponsor of the 2015 BHA Hospitality & Tourism Summit, and a representative is slated to speak with attendees regarding the payments industry and how it relates to hospitality and tourism. Together, both organizations will also facilitate events providing BHA members with a platform to learn, gather insights and network.
The BHA represents over 40,000 hotels, serviced apartments, clubs, restaurants, food service, attractions and leisure companies.
