Leading figures from the hospitality industry gathered last month to celebrate the Island’s tourism industry. JHA CEO Simon Soar gave a strong presentation, followed by a guest speaker, Kat Thomas of Onegreenbean, a PR agency being utilised by Visit Jersey to promote the island. Remember the yoga men in kilts? That was Kat’s doing. After some insights into global tourism PR do and don’ts, guests enjoyed a three course meal and a black tie dancefloor shuffle to an excellent performance by local band Roodmood. The mood was upbeat so here’s to growth in the hospitality industry for 2019.
