Who is Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador? To put it simply, we are the tourism industry in NL. More specifically, Hospitality NL is the industry association representing tourism services and attractions across Newfoundland and Labrador. First established in 1983, Hospitality NL provides leadership and direction for the sustainability and growth of the tourism industry. As a non-profit membership association, Hospitality NL leads, supports, represents, and enhances tourism in the province.
Because Hospitality NL is membership driven, the association is guided by a Board of Directors made up of tourism industry operators. They are members of the association from different types of tourism establishments and from around the province. Together, the ten-member Board guides the path of the organization and the industry.
Hospitality NL values sustainability, a whole industry perspective, the environment, technology, and accessibility. These core values help guide the work of the association in three main areas of focus: advocacy and communications, skills and knowledge development, and membership and networking.
Advocacy and communications
As the voice of the provincial tourism industry, Hospitality NL aims to strengthen its connection with members and partners through open, two-way communication. Hospitality NL fosters the growth and sustainability of the tourism industry by keeping members informed of opportunities, developments, and challenges of the industry, as well as the organization’s advocacy efforts and priorities. To ensure that we are best able to meet the needs of the members we serve, Hospitality NL works collaboratively with partners and industry stakeholders, and encourages feedback from all members.
Advocating on issues of importance to the tourism industry in order to sustainably build a more competitive environment for tourism operators, the Board and staff of Hospitality NL work diligently on behalf of members, meeting with elected officials and stakeholders, preparing letters and submissions, clarifying the issues, openly supporting other tourism stakeholders, and highlighting the concerns of industry operators to ensure that the needs of the tourism industry are not overlooked and that tourism is acknowledged and respected as the significant and sustainable economic generator and employer it is.
Skills and knowledge development
Part of Hospitality NL’s mandate is to foster the development and growth of the tourism industry in Newfoundland and Labrador. Through professional development, training, and quality initiatives, Hospitality NL helps operators to improve their service delivery and professionalism and offers a wide range of training and education products and services specifically designed for tourism organizations. By offering resources such as industry standards information and labour initiatives, Hospitality NL fosters the growth of its members, as well as the industry itself.
