The British Institute of Innkeeping (now known as BII) was founded in 1981 with the support of the Brewers’ Society, the National Association of Licensed House Managers, the (then) National Union of Licensed Victuallers, the (then) Hotel and Catering Industry Training Board, and the Scottish Licensed Trade Association.

BII is a private limited company and a registered charity.
