An Established Local Organisation
Booking with a StayBlackpool registered business gives you the assurance of knowing that you have chosen a quality provider. It’s an old and well established group which has seen it all over the years!
It was originally formed in 1898 with North and South sections which then amalgamated in 1945. The present name of StayBlackpool came about in 2007 when the Blackpool Guesthouse Association merged with the Blackpool Premier Hotels Association.
Support for Hoteliers
As a membership organisation, it works hard to help its member businesses. It provides a strong voice for the sector through the Chair who is always on hand to offer comment to the media and represent the holiday providers of Blackpool.
It also creates a strong united group with a stronger voice and greater influence to steer the direction of tourism issues in the town. For example, they help the whole area with funding issues surrounding the illuminations, and supported individual hoteliers in selected areas in the face of growing issues with HMOs.
It’s is also a source of information to businesses in the tourism sector – for example planning information is received and passed on to businesses who may be affected, trade events and visits are organised to local attractions so that hoteliers can offer better knowledge to their clients, and of course the website and regular newsletter provide current news on a host of subjects.
StayBlackpool members also maintain their own listing on the website and training can be provided in the best use of the function.
If you have an accredited accommodation business then StayBlackpool is the membership group for you.
