Alliance Leadership

Mission Statement

The New York City Hospitality Alliance is a broad-based membership association founded in 2012 to foster the growth and vitality of the industry that has made New York City the Hospitality Capital of the World. It is the first association ever formed in New York City representing all facets of this diverse industry: restaurants, bars, lounges, destination hotels and major industry suppliers.

With the five boroughs boasting the highest concentration of these industries in the United States, The Alliance plays a critical role in meeting the specialized and unique needs of this essential sector of New York City’s economy that has become a beacon to the world.

Through the support and involvement of its members, The Alliance is committed to advancing -- with a clear and unified voice -- an agenda focused on opportunity, economic investment and job creation.

Advocating on behalf of our members at all levels of government, The Alliance supports pro-growth public policy, encourages investment in and promotion of NYC’s hospitality industry, and evaluates the development, implementation and fairness of relevant government regulations.

By providing education and training, access to expert consultants, and opportunities to collaborate and exchange ideas, the New York City Hospitality Alliance helps ensure our members have the tools necessary to grow and prosper and continue to offer the world-class quality of service that has made our industry famous and our City a global destination.
