First cutting edge 70-minute ‘HOSPA Spotlight’ sessions to shine on hottest hospitality finance, revenue management and IT challenges, at ‘HOSPACE 2014 Conference and Exhibition’
The first 'HOSPA Spotlight' sessions are to be introduced to the one-day Conference programme – to be held at the Sofitel London Heathrow, at Terminal 5. HOSPACE 2014 will stage a morning and an afternoon in-depth, 70-minute 'HOSPA Spotlight' session that will form major focal points for the day's discussions. The two 'HOSPA Spotlights' will be designed to dissect, analyse and discuss – with the help of a chaired panel of industry experts and cutting edge, interactive technology to ensure full delegate participation (including voting on issues raised) – the most pressing and wide ranging topics facing hospitality management today.
"We are very excited about the introduction of the 'HOSPA Spotlights' which will enable delegates to explore every facet of the biggest issues and developments presently affecting hospitality finance, revenue management and IT. This fulfils a priority HOSPACE objective of providing information, education and inspiration through innovation, unrivalled networking opportunities, and devising a conference programme that helps enhance delegate skills and knowledge. And in this context, we will be linking our popular and highly topical industry-specific afternoon 'Educational Workshop' programme into the 'Spotlight' sessions, enabling attendees to get the maximum benefit from HOSPACE 2014 – the largest and most prestigious annual gathering of like-minded hospitality practitioners in the UK."
The two 'HOSPA Spotlights' will be interspersed with two traditionally popular HOSPACE presentations – specifically the 'Industry Overview' and the 'Leaders Panel', where top hospitality industry leaders will examine everything from how hoteliers are dealing with the upturn in the UK economy; and the ongoing campaign to reduce VAT rates for visitor accommodation and attractions, to the improvement of visa access for tourists and business people into the UK; making the most of working with Online Travel Agents (OTAs); and tourism predictions for 2015 which will see England hosting the Rugby World Cup (with a number of matches played at The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff). In addition, there will be a session dedicated to an 'Overview of the Tourism Council'.
As in previous years, HOSPACE 2014 will be hosting its ever popular and growing 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 event's grand finale Gala Dinner – including the signature 'HOSPA Pub Quiz' – is one of the traditional social networking highlights of the Conference.
