Interested in supporting National B&B Week?
We want even more companies and organisations to get involved in National B&B Week!
Because we want to make as much noise as possible about the Great British B&B, to make people think of a B&B first when planning a stay and to encourage them to enjoy the unique and genuine hospitality that only independent accommodation can provide.
By getting as many partners as possible from across the tourism industry to shout with one voice to promote the country’s independent hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs. The more noise we can make together, the more we’ll be heard!
What’s in it for me?
If you work with B&Bs, this is your chance to show your support for the hardworking individuals, families and small teams behind their success. Your brand will be featured here on the National B&B Week website where it can be seen by the 20,000 B&Bs across the UK, and we are planning on generating plenty of media interest to give your brand free exposure.
What do I need to do?
