An Introduction to the Hospitality Industry
The hospitality industry is probably the world’s fastest-growing, job-creating profession, employing one in ten people worldwide. In the UK alone, the industry employs over 1.8 million people. It is estimated that the industry will require 30,000-35,000 trained people at management and supervisory level year on year until 2010, if it is to fulfil its potential. There are currently too few students taking college and university courses in hospitality to sustain this requirement. You can imagine, therefore, that there is enormous scope for those who want to pursue a career in the industry, plus a huge range of employment opportunities across the varied subsectors. You might want to manage a hotel, run a restaurant or become the next most famous chef, or maybe your interests lie in accountancy or information technology. Whatever your talents, the hospitality industry offers variety and opportunity.
Examples of primary providers or the Commercial Sector in the Hospitality Industry:

• Hotels, inns and guest houses
• Public houses and café-bars
