HOSPACE is a one-day annual conference and exhibition hosted by HOSPA which is the UK's leading educational organisation for Professionals involved in Financial Management, Revenue Management and IT within the hospitality industry.

HOSPACE 2016 will enable UK and international delegates to get an informed and cutting-edge view from an international line-up of inspirational experts – all icons in their own field – about the latest key financial, revenue and IT management issues and developments; as well as the commercial aspects that connect these together to maximise profitability and create value. 

Highlights include: ‘A Leaders’ Panel’ comprising a line-up of some of the UK hospitality industry’s most influential executives who will be looking at present issues, trends and developments affecting all hospitality professionals; two major HOSPA Spotlight Panel Sessions that will examine in detail key topics of the day that affect all our Members and delegates; and a programme of industry specific workshops and technical updates – all led by top specialists in their subjects.

As in past years, HOSPACE will be supported by a growing and increasingly influential exhibition of hospitality technology solutions – providing delegates with a ‘one stop shop’ to view and interact with the latest and ‘best in class’ technologies – covering all eventualities for any hospitality business, whether they be start-up, established independent, or multi chain-owned, operations.

The impact of leaving the EU on the UK hospitality industry and the profession’s influence on the rest of Europe to be scrutinised at HOSPA’s 11th annual HOSPACE2016 Conference and Exhibition on 10 November

The impact of leaving the EU on the UK hospitality industry and the profession’s influence on the rest of Europe to be scrutinised at HOSPA’s 11th annual HOSPACE2016 Conference and Exhibition on 10 November In a post-Brexit Britain, the impact of leaving the EU on the UK hospitality industry and the profession’s influence on the rest of Europe will be perhaps the most pressing subject under scrutiny at HOSPACE2016 – to be held on 10 November at the Sofitel London Heathrow, Terminal 5. Other hot issues under the microscope at HOSPACE2016 – celebrating 10 successful years since the first annual HOSPA Conference and Exhibition was held under the former British Association of Hospitality Accountants (BAHA) banner – will include: an analysis of the ‘Current state of the Hospitality Industry’; a top-level discussion by a distinguished panel of industry leaders on ‘Attracting and retaining talent’; an expert look at ‘Hospitality Sustainability – the importance of the world we live in’; an examination of the challenges faced by the accommodation industry from the likes of AirBnB and onefinestay (handmade hospitality for stays in the finest homes), under the title ‘Disruption within traditional hospitality’; and a branded versus non-branded hotel debate, based on the proposition: ‘This house believes chain hotel brands tend to supress value rather than create it’. Presiding over the day’s conference sessions will be raconteur and motivational speaker Peter Hancock, Chief Executive of Pride of Britain Hotels, whose legendary wit and wisdom will keep a top line-up of high profile industry speakers, to be announced shortly, on their mettle. Other highlights of HOSPACE2016 will include the opportunity for delegates to attend a wide selection of highly relevant ‘HOSPACE Workshops and Technical Updates’. In a similar vein, new to HOSPACE2016 will be an interactive ‘4-Way Drop-in Surgery’ – enabling delegates to benefit from four concurrent, topical presentations by leading suppliers on pressing hospitality industry issues, IT challenges and solutions. “HOSPACE2016 promises to be the most thought provoking and informative yet,” said HOSPA Chief Executive Jane Pendlebury. “The challenges facing the UK hospitality industry in an uncertain post-Brexit world are immense, but certainly not insurmountable. HOSPACE2016 will be an invaluable forum for airing commonly experienced issues, problems and solutions. The Conference and Exhibition also represents an unrivalled networking, knowledge updating and learning opportunity for hospitality finance, revenue management, and IT professionals. At this year’s event, we have the newly added bonus of providing hospitality marketing expertise, as HOSPA now works hand-in-hand with the Hotel Marketing Association (HMA) – with HOSPA membership now additionally encompassing HMA membership.” As in past years, HOSPACE’s ever popular exhibition of hospitality technology solutions will provide delegates with a ‘one-stop shop’ to view and interact with the latest and ‘best in class’ technologies, suitable for all sizes of operation and types of ownership. The event’s grand finale Gala Dinner will witness another first for HOSPACE2016. HOSPA’s prestigious annual Hospitality Finance, Revenue Management and IT ‘Professionals of the Year’ awards will be presented at the Dinner, instead of at HOSPA’s traditional annual Christmas awards lunch.
