Types of Membership

ACCOMODATION

BHTA understands that running a hotel is more about business management, advocacy, finance and marketing that about ensuring that your guests have a comfortable stay at your property.  Your business not only competes in a local market, but also in a dynamic fast paced international market.  The BHTA works daily to ensure that we create a supportive environment that will enable your property to run efficiently, be more cost-effective, and grow your profits. Through the BHTA you will have access to key industry players and resources and will benefit from an extensive network of industry executives.

To access BHTA benefits, each individual property member can register one primary contact and a maximum of four individuals.  This helps ensure that the benefits of membership are accrued at different levels and departments of your organisation.  Discounts are offered only to BHTA card members.
