HOSPA's annual HOSPACE conference is once again set to unite the industry — offering networking opportunities with leading industry figures coupled with insightful, topical discussions on key issues affecting hospitality.
Confirmed for the Royal Lancaster London on Thursday 17 November 2022, HOSPA will play host to an array of discussions and workshops from leading minds in the industry — followed by a popular gala dinner and award ceremony in the evening.
The event is set to address some of the key issues impacting the contemporary hospitality landscape, including sustainability, technology, cyber security and career progression — something that has been at the forefront of HOSPA’s agenda with its recent #ShareYourSuccess campaign.
Jane Pendlebury, CEO of HOSPA, commented: “Following the success of last year’s event, we are delighted to announce that we will be returning to the Royal Lancaster for another evening of networking and celebration. There is really no substitute for in-person events like this one, and last year's HOSPACE event was welcomed by many following the isolation of the pandemic. We are hoping to emulate that success and provide attendees with informative and engaging discussions around some of the most pressing issues we all face.”
HOSPA will once again be calling upon a range of voices to discuss the ongoing impacts of the pandemic and how the industry has evolved and will continue to evolve as we move forward — with content and speakers to be announced shortly.
Notable contributors at last year's event included Kate Nicholls, Chief Executive of UKHospitality, Sue Williams, GM of Whatley Manor, Veryan Palmer of the Headland Hotel, Mark Edwards of BDO, Samantha Williams of Profitroom and Caroline Baldwin, features and special projects editor at The Caterer — with many more leading industry voices expected to take the stage.
Jane continued: “Last year’s hybrid event was a great success, and we’re hoping to replicate that level of accessibility through a similar format this year. Of course, no HOSPACE event would be complete without our much-anticipated gala dinner and award ceremony in the evening — a collective celebration which seeks to shine a light on those exceptional individuals who help firmly position hospitality as one of the UK’s leading sectors.”
