MASTER INNHOLDERS’ HOTEL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
On 23rd and 24th January 2023, we attended Master Innholder’s Hotel Leadership Conference.
Laura Meeson, our corporate manager, and Joel Nolan, our sales consultant, met with plenty of business professionals to discuss the benefits of Core by Premier Software® at the event. Everyone who attended at JW Marriot, Grosvenor House Hotel in London, was inspired to think ‘Beyond the Bubble’ as part of this year’s theme.
If you missed us at the conference, then keep your eyes peeled for more events later in the year.
BEAUTY SALONS THRIVE ON THE HIGH STREET
According to the Ordinance Survey’s ‘Points of Interest’ mapping data, beauty salons have continued to prosper on high streets compared to many other businesses. This survey shows that hair and beauty businesses have increased by 5.9% on high streets since the height of the pandemic.
The figures have been revealed by the BBC, who analysed 1.5 million records contained in the Ordinance Survey. This analysis provides quarterly, comprehensive data of businesses, facilities and services operating in England, Scotland and Wales.

UKHOSPITALITY URGES TO NAME AND SHAME ENERGY SUPPLIERS
UKHospitality has urged Ofgem to penalise energy suppliers who have carried out bad practices.
The trade association’s plea has been written to tackle behaviour such as high standing charges, inflated deposits and plenty more, wishing to name and shame energy suppliers. Ultimately, the letter urges Ofgem and the Government to punish bad practices and enable struggling hospitality businesses to renegotiate or cancel terms.
“Day after day, we get more reports from businesses with another example of how an energy supplier… won’t even engage on a contract simply because a business works in hospitality,” states Kate Nicholls, UKHospitality chief executive.
