We’re starting to see a few chinks of light at the end of the tunnel, with the Government roadmap to reopening having remained in place for the Monday 12 April allowing those pubs lucky enough to have a garden able to undertake some limited trading as we move towards indoor opening in May and fingers crossed a full re-start in June.
How to attend
The MA500 May event will be taking a look at some of the challenges facing businesses as things begin to return to normal for pubs, and will be speaking to some top operators that have innovative solutions in store in order to hit the ground running in the next few months.
The event will be virtual and you can register your interest in attending by emailing Ubfcvgnyvgl.Riragf@jeoz.pbz
Some of our topics to be covered include:
- Late-night action — After a year of full closures, what’s left for the late night sector? How can it recover and adapt to the new normal? We’ll be talking to late-night operators to get their insight into this once booming sector
- Food factors — How has the pandemic impacted on food trends in hospitality? What are consumers looking for, and how are operators adapting to recover and meet those changing needs? What lessons have we learnt from lockdown? We’ll be hearing for different operators on how they see their food offer moving forward.
- Staycation anticipation — With the summer looming, and holiday’s abroad unlikely, how can operators tap into the opportunity of tourism at home? We’ll be speaking to some top operators on their advice when it comes to making the most of the staycation crowds
- Wedding bells - With ongoing restrictions on large gatherings unlikely to change soon, pubs have a great opportunity to tap into the smaller wedding market. We speak to operators to get firsthand insight into how to host the perfect wedding.
