The macro trends affecting the on-trade, women and families, food, technology and the demand for premium experiences are just a few of the topics Heineken's brand director for cider Emma Sherwood-Smith will discuss at this month's Future Trends: Beer and Cider event.

As well as the emerging trends affecting pubs, Sherwood-Smith will also reveal how the global drinks giant is responding to changing consumer demands and how pubs can better capitalise on such changes.

She told the Publican's Morning Advertiser ​(PMA​) in this exclusive video interview ahead of the event: "In beer, craft has been huge trend for the past couple of years, but we're now seeing the second wave of that coming in as craft starts to become more mainstream and the impact of that is new product and brand launches."

It was also evident that those pubs and bars making the most of activities and tapping into certain trends were seeing a rise in footfall, Sherwood-Smith told the PMA ​in this teaser video ahead of her presentation at the event in London on 22 June.

"The pubs and bars that are really making the most of getting more people in, more often, are [seeing customers] spending more.

"All day food is a big thing, as are activities in pubs, and we're seeing trends around golf and darts – so it's giving people reasons to come out and spend money rather than stay at home."

Other speakers on the day include British Beer and Pub Association's chief executive Brigid Simmonds, the National Association of Cider Makers' new communications director Gabe Cook and headline speaker Bob Pease, president and CEO of the Brewers Association.
