Industry leaders gather to discuss and debate the ‘state’ of hospitality 2019
The ceda Conference 2019 takes place this Friday 5th April and will see the businesses that design, build and supply the components that power the engine rooms, kitchens, of our industry come together to discuss hospitality in 2019.
The agenda sees the key issues facing our industry being addressed by the people best positioned to address them. An update on Brexit will be given by UKHospitality CEO Kate Nicholls, who is regularly in No 10 representing hospitality. Thank you Kate.
CGA’s Peter Martin will outline where he sees the UK’s eating out sector currently. Martin’s 35 years’ experience as a columnist, editor, media owner, market analyst and consultant enables a unique historical view and perspective to be delivered.
Looking forward from where we are today in Artificial Intelligence and how it will impact hospitality, delegates will hear from Victoria Albrecht, CEO, Springbok AI. Albrecht can draw from her experience of working with global businesses on AI including Airbus, Coca Cola and Barclays.
H&C News will be attending and reporting live on the day broadcasting updates through social media. You can join the conversation on the day on twitter using the hashtag #cedaConnects and on Facebook through our HandCSocial Group.
If you are attending please come and see us on our stand (publishing desk), where we will be reporting live.
We are also sponsoring this year’s ceda Grand Prix Awards taking place in the evening, and we have two seats available on our table. If you and a plus 1 would like to be our guests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
