Hospitality recovery to be key topic for Casual Dining
STRATEGIES for rebuilding the UK hospitality industry, which has taken a huge financial hit since the outbreak of COVID-19 leading many potato growers and suppliers to look at other outlets for their crops and products, will be amongst the topics discussed by speakers at the forthcoming Casual Dining show.
As in previous years, the show is supported by UKHospitality, whose CEO Katie Nicholls will lead an exclusive session providing an overview of the government strategies needed to help the sector recover and grow.
The organisers have also confirmed a number of panel sessions with speakers discussing investment, menu innovation, business rates, staffing, wages, Brexit, rooms, surviving the pandemic, key business areas and innovations – operations, marketing, going global and the next big thing.
Reflecting the challenges and innovations of the post-COVID landscape, Peter Bachman will be presenting a session on delivery and virtual brands.
Event Manager Eva Ellis commented: “With this year’s show there is a real sense of coming together and celebrating the innovations that have emerged from a challenging 18 months. The calibre of this year’s Keynote Speaker line-up (not to mention the exhibitors and buyers!) really reflects just how passionate and resilient this sector is.”
Casual Dining takes place on September 23rd and 24th at ExCeL London and is co-located with lunch! and Commercial Kitchen. Registration is free for those in the trade.
