Join our Festival4Finance for hospitality & our community of online resources

We are very excited to be launching our very first Festival4Finance for the hospitality industry and with this the first peek into our online Finance4Hospitality community with all of this happening on Thursday 30th June!

The Festival4Finance runs online throughout July and is a joint collaboration between arena4finance, Merlin Business Consulting and as part of the Master Innholders Aspiring Leaders Diploma (MIALD).

The MIALD is a 12-month development programme which supports junior level supervisors and managers in improving management skills, developing leadership talent and building career prospects. The MIALD was awarded the Princess Royal Training Award in 2021 for its contributions to hospitality training and development.

For the Festival4Finance event we will be hosting a variety of opportunities to learn more about managing the numbers in your hospitality business, including seminars and panel debates. The session topics include: 'Why are the numbers important?', 'Preparing a demand forecast for your hotel business in a post pandemic world', 'Managing food costs in challenging times' and 'Managing energy costs in a hospitality business'.

To take a look at the full Festival4Finance event programme please visit our events page.

At the same time we are also launching a brand-new online community which has been developed for all those wishing to learn more about hospitality accounting and keep up to date with the latest trends and techniques.

arena4finance has been in operation since 2004 and during that time has built an outstanding reputation for providing training and professional development solutions to a range of clients including operating companies in the hospitality sector, trade associations as well as universities and hotel schools.

We are launching our online monthly subscription service to share our knowledge and expertise in hospitality finance to inform and equip new and existing professionals within the industry as well as students and those looking to join the industry from other professions.

The subscription service has been developed with the importance of continuing professional development (CPD) in mind as we seek to support hospitality professionals within their current roles and provide the opportunity to grow and prepare for the future too.

Our Enews updates, which will be released twice monthly, and free webinars, which will run every month, will keep subscribers up to date with the latest developments within the industry. Subscribers will have the opportunity to share knowledge and network through the webinars and in our community groups, and our learning bites will provide guidance on key topics to help our subscribers fulfil their role with confidence. Subscribers will also benefit from exclusive discounts on our courses and training as well as have access to careers advice and our jobs board.

The resources will be ideal for you if you are:

  • > Completing the Master Innholders Leadership Programme (MIALD)
  • > Enrolled as a Hospitality Manager Apprentice at Level 4 studying the Business modules
  • > Enrolled as a Hospitality Supervisor Apprentice at Level 3 studying the Business modules

  • > New to the hospitality industry, working in a finance role and seeking to learn more about the Uniform System of Accounts for the Lodging Industry (USALI)
