What is Hospitality Unites?
Hospitality Unites is an initiative of Fine Food Australia dedicated to uniting and supporting the hospitality industry. Delivering connections, conversations, and meaningful business advice and education for whatever stage of recovery your business may be in across the country.
HU was born out of industry need during a challenging two years, launching originally as a digital hub, into a Virtual Summit in 2021. Now, in unison with the exponential growth the foodservice industry is seeing, Hospitality Unites has become a larger format exhibition 22-23 Feb 2023, MCEC Melbourne.

Can students attend?
Students enrolled at a tertiary level or registered apprentices may attend the show if they have the appropriate student identity card. All students will need to register online. Primary and Secondary school students will not be admitted, regardless of any courses they are studying.
Students must be mindful that Hospitality Unites is a business event.
Can children attend the expo?
As this is a business event for those people working in the industry, we ask visitors not to bring anyone under the age of 15 to the show. The exception is infants under one year old that cannot be separated from their primary caregiver. If you bring an infant we strongly recommend that you carry them in a baby harness due to crowds (strictly no prams or shopping trolleys allowed at the show). This applies to the children of both visitors and exhibitors.
Under no circumstances are any children permitted into the exhibition halls during Move In and Move Out of the show.
What do I do if someone tries to sell me the Hospitality Unites databases and visitor lists?
This is a scam and you should ignore them. Hospitality Unites operates under strict data privacy laws, and we do not share our visitor or any other internal data with unauthorised third parties.
Any communication you may receive offering you to rent/buy or download our visitor or exhibitor contacts is a scam and should be deleted. We are currently exploring legal avenues to shut down these practices.
