THE INAUGURAL EVENT.

We’re starting small, focusing on re-connecting and the road to recovery in 2021. In the years ahead Hospitality Unites will become a destination for all things foodservice with a live exhibition and full education program in 2022 and beyond.

DIGITAL.

Beyond the event, Hospitality Unites is a content led initiative for everything foodservice - sharing stories from around Australia and providing solutions the industry needs to operate. Hospitality Unites is committed to helping the industry recover and is passionate about spreading your message, products and stories - from ‘How Tos’ and inspiration, to practical guidelines.

DISCOVER THE STORIES.

HALF ACRE.

Named after the sheer size of the land located in the industrial neighbourhood of South Melbourne, Half Acre is owned and operated by Adam Wright-Smith (ex-Fat Radish, NYC), Leigh Worcester and Asaf Smoli (food&desire).

Although the initial site was dilapidated, they saw its true potential and turned it into what we now get to enjoy today - an all-day eatery, a bar and a unique event space for private and communal functions. It is a distinctly Melbourne venue, and perfect for hosting an industry reunion.

AN INITIATIVE OF FINE FOOD AUSTRALIA.

For 36 years, Fine Food Australia has been the heartbeat and most trustworthy food industry event, bringing together over 25,000 local and international professionals for a 4-day showcase of the latest products, trends and experts.

The team at Fine Food were so inspired by the strength and innovation of Australia's foodservice industry in the midst of this ongoing COVID-19 battle, we wanted to use our voice to make yours louder.
