Advocacy on your behalf – You will be aware of Government and Local Bodies issues concerning B&Bs.  We ensure these issues are addressed by providing feedback on their policies and regulations - ensuring they are favourable to you and your business.  We work collaboratively with accommodation associations and tourism bodies to ensure your voice is heard in the tourism industry.
