Tasmanian Hospitality Association

On the 17th April, 1839, a group of men met at the Whitehorse Tavern in Liverpool St, Hobart Town after having formed and instituted the new ‘Van Diemens Land Licensed Victuallers Society’. The main objective of the society was to maintain and promote the respectability and general interest of the Licensed Victuallers in the colony providing assistance to the members as required. When Van Diemens Land became self-governing in 1856 and the name of the colony was changed to Tasmania, the Van Diemens Land Victuallers Society became the United Licensed Victuallers Association – Tasmania Branch. Since that time, the society has gone through two further name changes settling on the name as we know it today – Tasmanian Hospitality Association (THA). The association today is recognised by the Tasmanian Government as the peak industry body that represents the hospitality industry in Tasmania. Proudly claiming 180 years of delivering industry service, the association is governed by a board of industry professionals. The THA is a membership-based organisation representing more than 500 venues including hotels, accommodation, pub/taverns, cafes, restaurants, community and sporting clubs making it Tasmania’s third largest industry. The THA is a proactive body which seeks at all times to advocate for the hospitality sector and to ensure Tasmania has a viable and profitable hospitality industry now and in the future. With a commitment to ensuring productive and inspiring workplaces, the THA is positioned to ensure the hospitality businesses of today, are the industry leaders of tomorrow.
