As the summer months draw to a close, it’s that time of the year where businesses in the hospitality and licensed retail sector begin preparations for Christmas and New Year. If you are looking for new products and services ahead of the festive period, there is a myriad of suppliers available to businesses within hospitality and licensed retail, which makes it difficult to know where to begin and who to trust.

The British Institute of Innkeeping has recently launched a new service, which demonstrates their commitment to continually add new benefits for its members. The new service, BII Marketplace aims to ease the stress of searching for new suppliers – not just over the busy months, but all year round.

Launched as part of a brand new website, BII Marketplace is an extensive online directory of hand-picked suppliers that deliver the best-in-class products and services. As expected, the Marketplace is complete with suppliers from a range of different services. Members now have access to a diverse and growing pool of exclusive money saving deals, which covers finance, stocktaking, property, technology, utilities, cellar equipment, food, drink and health and safety.

The new website features a ‘My BII’ section, which is each member’s personal homepage. It’s tailored geographically to reflect their location and is the main hub to access to all benefits and services. Suppliers are closely monitored through regular feedback and mystery customer reports to ensure they meet highest standards and offer great value for money.

Over many years of working closely with suppliers up and down the country, the BII has developed an enviable list of trusted regional and national partners – all of which are now available on the Marketplace. The BII is also growing this list to ensure members have an unrivalled directory of the best suppliers in the industry.

The founding partners of BII Marketplace are some of the biggest firms in the industry, including PXL Insurance, CPL Training Group, Beond, Coca- Cola, JLT Employee Benefits, First Data and Merchant Money.
