Hotrec & hospitality sector

WHAT IS HOTREC?

HOTREC is the Voice of Hotels, Restaurants, Cafés and similar establishments in Europe. We bring together 42 national associations representing the hospitality sector - which is composed mainly by SMEs - in 27 countries across Europe, from Portugal to Estonia and from Ireland to Cyprus.

HOTREC's Mission is to promote the interests of these enterprises vis-à-vis the European institutions. We continually monitor all EU policies that have an impact on the hospitality industry and bring the sector's interests and concerns across to EU decision-makers. Our aim is a legal environment which enables hotels, restaurants, and cafés to be competitive and therefore provide more jobs and growth to the European economy.
