F&B has always been one of the fastest-paced, most market-reading, innovative and agile building blocks of the hospitality industry. Restaurants and bars are the pulse and heartbeat of all good properties and developments and a key driver of revenue, reputation, brand differentiation, loyalty and joy.
They have also just endured perhaps the most challenging year in their history.
As the industry moves beyond common solutions and into a period of dramatic innovation, adjustment and change as we emerge back to more normal business conditions during 2021-2022, The F&B Stakeholders Summit will bring leading industry experts and practitioners to one place, at one time, for a series of highly focused and candid live discussions revealing their plans and strategies for the next year and beyond.
All F&B professionals are welcome to attend and take advantage of the opportunity to network with their peers and colleagues in the industry at its first major live event in over a year, as well as hearing frank insights on how leading players intend to rise from this period more strongly than they entered it.
