HOSPA (Hospitality Professionals Association for the commercial support functions of the sector) is a non-profit educational organisation, which was formed to bring together those hospitality industry professionals involved in Financial Management, Revenue Management, and IT. HOSPA is now seeking to extend its reach and has already expanded into Marketing and Asset Management. 

Not only is HOSPA recognised as the UK’s authoritative voice in the hospitality industry on financial management, technical accounting issues and IT, but also as the leading arena for debate on hotel technology developments, Revenue Management, Asset Management and marketing. HOSPA’s Professional Development Programmes in Revenue Management and Financial Management provide rigorous, relevant and recognised education for all those seeking to further their careers in or gain knowledge of these important functions. 

Both programmes are endorsed by the Institute of Hospitality, demonstrating that they adhere to good practice standards in training and training delivery, are relevant to the needs of the industry and meet a wide range of essential criteria relating to quality standards and quality learning outcomes.  The IoH particularly commended:

  • The quality of materials and access to e-libraries and databases
  • The work-based nature of the assessments
  • The explicit timetable of events for each Stage/Level of the programmes
  • The support mechanisms available to learners at Stage/Level and in particular, the Tutors
  • The expertise of the staff involved in the running and support of the programmes, and the advisory committees
Other professional development opportunities include:

A regular programme of workshops and seminars provide the perfect opportunity for members to continue to develop their knowledge and network with colleagues. 

HOSPACE is a one-day annual conference and exhibition hosted by HOSPA to be held on Thursday 28th November 2019 at the Royal Lancaster, London. HOSPACE 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.

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 or established,  independent, or part of an ownership or branded group.

HOSPA is on all major Social Media channels, including Twitter on @HOSPATweets
