Village Hotel Club Portsmouth joins Business South in the Year of the Champion

Set to open their newest hotel at Lakeside North Harbour in November 6th, Village Hotels Portsmouth is the latest company to join the network.

Business South was established in 2007 to be the independent representative of businesses in the South of England.  To unite businesses, to gain strength from this collaboration, and to use it to make a difference to both individual organisations and to the wider economy.

In the last decade, countless business connections have been made, and the Champions programme has grown to 200 members. 85 per cent of Champions are making connections and doing business as a result of being a Champion.

Beyond making connections between individual businesses, the Champions programme and the strength that such an influential group of organisations represents, has achieved a huge amount for the region.  Together, the Champions have promoted the area, demonstrated the importance of their sectors, provided invaluable thought leadership, influenced policies and investment decisions and delivered on a range of projects.

Set to open their newest hotel at Lakeside North Harbour in November, Village Hotels Portsmouth is the latest company to join the network. Founded in 1995, Village Hotel Club now operates 28 hotels across the UK.

Fiona McBride, Director of Sales, Village Hotels, said:

“In association with Business South, we are proud to be championing the business community, helping our guests work, rest and play at our new 153-bedroom Village Hotel at Lakeside North Harbour. The hotel, which includes a leisure club, with a world-class gym, and Business Club, will be an exciting focal point for the staff of many local companies and organisations.”

Leigh-Sara Timberlake, Champion Director at Business South, said:

“I’m really excited to have Village Hotels on board as Champions. Their hotel launch in Portsmouth will be a welcome addition to the South’s hospitality industry as well as their Business Club providing a pivotal hub for local businesses in the Portsmouth area. We look forward to working with Village Hotels as we continue to help develop local economy growth”
