Koninklijke Horeca Nederland (KHN) is the largest organisation representing hospitality businesses in the Netherlands. Our association speaks for almost 20,000 hospitality businesses that together employ around 240,000 people and we dedicate our efforts to ensuring that the industry as a whole is professional and future-proof.
We support our members by lobbying, providing advice, information and inspiration and offering them financial benefits. Our central consideration is a good business climate. This starts by protecting the interests of our members: we lobby policymakers at local, national and international levels to mitigate financial burdens and excessive rules for the hospitality industry. We keep our members comprehensibly informed of relevant legislation affecting the hospitality industry and supply practical tools to facilitate compliance.
Hospitality businesses can come to us if they have questions about legislation or management matters. KHN employs in- house policy consultants and lawyers to address complex issues. We keep a sharp watch on market figures, developments and emerging trends with a view to inspiring members to come up with new ideas and developments. Additionally, we stimulate an exchange of information between businesses in the knowledge that there is much that we can leam from each other.
Besides protecting interests and providing personal advice, KHN agrees arrangements with multiple hospitality industry suppliers, such as Buma, Sena, energy providers and insurance companies. This allows KHN members to benefit from high discounts, thus enabling members from small to large to keep more money in their business.
