"Choosing to be a member at HOSPA has been a decisive element in my career. Apart from allowing me to meet with valuable professionals in the industry from all around UK and abroad, HOSPA is a very useful forum for the hospitality industry where tangible ideas can be debated, latest developments shared and innovations explained.
It has also allowed me and my team to grow in knowledge through its professional training program, honing our analytical skills and giving us a renewed momentum to succeed in the industry. Its strength resides in the fact that all members are active in the hospitality scene and willing to exchange information in an ever competitive environment.
My advice: buy your membership card!" Stephanie Timsit, Director of Finance, Jumeirah Etihad Towers, United Arab Emirates
"HOSPA has been a great benefit on a personal level to grow my network and knowledge in areas of the business that I would not normally be dealing with. Every meeting has had excellent content and speakers with such invaluable content that we even got the whole reservations team to join as part of their career development.
By being an active member of HOSPA we have been able to keep our accounts, revenue and IT side of the business all well ahead of the game." Neil Braude, Revenue Director, The Cavendish London & Acorn Award Winner 2011
