Jane Pendlebury, chief executive of HOSPA, said: “We’re delighted to have such hospitality heavyweights on board. Peter is enormously entertaining so will no doubt prove a thoroughly engaging host, while Harry and Sally’s fascinating backgrounds and abundance of experience will make them enthralling interviewees. We’re really looking forward to it.”

HOSPACE 2018 is hosted by HOSPA, the UK’s leading educational organisation for both UK and international professionals involved in financial management, revenue management, marketing, IT and asset management within the hospitality industry.

Booking for both delegates and exhibitors is currently open for this year’s annual event which is set for Thursday, 1 November at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.

Highlights of the event are set to involve: panel discussions focusing on a variety of subjects, including the impact of leaving the EU on the hospitality industry; plus some of hospitality’s most successful women will discuss the future for women working in the industry. There will also be a programme of industry specific workshops and technical updates, led by top specialists in their subjects.

As well as a learning experience, nominations are also open for the Professional Of The Year Awards, which will be announced and presented at the Gala Dinner.
