Hospitality Unites Rejuvenated As 2-part Event
Fine Food Australia has today announced the rejuvenated format of the 2-part Hospitality Unites event, with a one-day Live Summit to be held June 21 at Half Acre, South Melbourne, and a one-day Virtual Summit to be held June 22, 2021.
Product and Event Manager of Fine Food Australia and Hospitality Unites, Andrew Lawson, said the two parts are set to be a unique experience unlike any event the foodservice industry has seen before.
“Foodservice was one of the hardest hit markets by COVID-19 last year, and as the industry navigates a strong recovery in 2021, we’re thrilled to unite everyone in Melbourne in person at the Live Summit, and nationally via our Virtual Summit.”
“We’re excited that this new format means we can bring industry professionals, colleagues and friends back together in a refreshing and engaging way at Half Acre” said Andrew.
The Live Summit is set be an intimate and vibrant face-to-face event focused specifically on the needs and landscape of the local Melbourne café and restaurant scene in their growth. The day will host a Business Breakfast, a celebratory Networking Drinks and tailored education streams for those who find themselves as either an emerging business, navigating a rebuild or innovating in a post-pandemic world.
The free-to-attend Virtual Summit will take that focus and extend it Australia wide, hosting thought leadership, education sessions and product discussions on the key topics and trends affecting the broader national foodservice industry.
“As consumers once again flood restaurants and cafes across the country, the future looks bright.”
“We’re working with industry leaders and those on the frontline to create workshops, networking opportunities and panel discussions that address what is really important for success in the immediate future and beyond – both in Melbourne and nationally” continued Andrew.
With over 36 years in the market, Fine Food Australia has a vast community of foodservice professionals, the Hospitality Unites event is curated for that industry.
“We’re continuing to work with the industry as Hospitality Unites comes to life, including from thought leaders and companies who are keen to be part of this important initiative dedicated to recovery” concluded Andrew.
More detailed information regarding the Hospitality Unites agenda and registration will become available over the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
