"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 the 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 are willing to exchange information in an ever competitive environment.
