Independent hotel group, the FJB Collection, has confirmed its support for the Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry by signing up as a Gold Patron.

Steered by group operations director and current president of the Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Michael Regenhardt, the FJB Collection is comprised of four prestigious Dorset-based hotels,  Haven Hotel, Sandbanks Hotel and Harbour Heights Hotel on the renowned Sandbanks peninsula and the Chine Hotel in Bournemouth.

With a range of conference facilities and dining experiences available at each of the four hotels, as well as outdoor corporate team-building activities hosted by the Watersports Academy, the FJB Collection recognises the importance of working with the region’s chamber to enhance the profile of its facilities, and made the decision to join as a Gold Patron.

The Gold Patron scheme represents the highest level of Patron membership within Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry and will provide the hotel group with the opportunity to access specialist business services, from top level networking opportunities to having priority consultation on key business issues.

Peter Scott, chief executive of Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, says: “Our region’s businesses are always looking for the opportunity to further develop impact in the local market as well as increase their own brand recognition. The Patron scheme helps businesses who wish to take a more leading and prominent role in chamber activities. We acknowledge that FJB is a long-standing Dorset business, attracting thousands of visitors to Dorset each year, and are delighted to welcome the FJB Collection as a Gold Patron.”

Michael Regenhardt adds: “FJB is an extremely exciting group, rooted in great service and quality. We recognise the benefits of working closely with the county’s Chamber of Commerce, which is becoming an increasingly vital resource for local businesses, and becoming a Gold Patron is an important step in further enhancing FJB’s profile within the region’s business community.”
