Considered Joining the BII?


The BII was established over 30 years ago to provide comprehensive business and professional support for people working in the licensed hospitality industry.


They now have a national network of almost 9,000 like-minded members, working across all areas of the sector - from apprentices to barstaff, pub chefs, managers, tenants, lessees and freetraders.


The common denominator is that all members aspire to advance their careers and grow their businesses with the help and support of the BII network.


They offer a one-stop shop, with access to expert advice, guidance, helplines, mentoring, qualifications and a range of free and discounted business services specifically tailored for the licensed industry you won’t find anywhere else – all for less
