The Pub & Bar Show 2016
Monday 3 October – 5 October

Stuck for ideas? Look no further than the Pub & Bar Show. This brand new event will give operators key insights into the latest trends and developments affecting the sector.

Bar and pub show

Featuring lively debates, interviews, demonstrations and talks, the exhibition will cover topics including ‘growth areas for pubs’ and provide lessons in how to turn a country pub into a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Experts will be on hand to offer advice on wine lists and craft beers and how best to pair these with food offerings, while meat lovers will enjoy the live line-up in the World Steak Challenge, with the opportunity to sample the best.

Often the best and most engaging stories are from those on the ground, so successful industry names, including Josh and Holly Eggleton of the Pony & Trap, Chew Magna, Bristol, will be among those sharing their knowledge.

You’ll also get the chance to quiz food and drink suppliers, technology and equipment representatives and exhibitors and be granted access to three other leading hospitality industry events: The Restaurant Show, Conscious Hospitality Show and the Catering Equipment Expo.

Future Trends: Spirits, the Royal Institution, London
Monday 3 October 2016

With pubs and bars tapping into the premium spirits and cocktails trend, the pressure is on having a unique offering that can help you stand out from the crowd.

Future trens

Returning to London for a third year, the Future Trends: Spirits event brings the industry together to discuss future innovations and key challenges.

The one-day event will identify how spirits brand owners, distributors, distillers, operators and influencers can make the most of new and exciting opportunities spanning the world of cocktails and provide pointers as to what the future might hold within this growing category.

Given that spirits performed well in pubs last year – the category grew by £111m with vodka, gin and non-cream liqueurs driving that growth – and CGA Strategy suggesting that the addition of cocktails to a bar menu can increase sales of spirits by 36% – the time has never been better to develop your knowledge.
