Publicans eager for next week’s Pub Leaders Summit

18 March, 2021 by Vanessa Cavasinni

The 2021 Pub Leaders Summit is only four days away, and pub operators from across the country are keen to hear from their colleagues about the various paths forward to recovery.

The Pub Leaders Summit will be held this coming Monday 22 March at Doltone House Darling Island in Sydney. More than 25 industry operators and stakeholders will take part in the days program, discussing topics as varied as F&B, property values, new gaming propositions, adapting to compliance changes, and sustainability initiatives. On the expo floor, exhibitors will unveil the latest goods ands services in everything from superannuation to the latest drinks SKUs to at-table ordering.

Between the conference and the expo, there will be plenty of ideas and sources of inspiration for publicans to take back to their own venues. And at such a crucial moment in venue recovery, the Pub Leaders Summit is more significant than ever.

Toby Chick, licensee of the award-winning Hotel Rose Bay, will take part in the F&B panel but is most looking forward to learning from his industry colleagues and their experiences throughout the day.

“2020 has been one of the most challenging and difficult years in business but notably hospitality within the past century. It is with these challenges that we have all faced that we are realising the usefulness of working together and understanding what it takes to thrive through change. The Pub Leaders Summit is a fantastic concept that brings all those who have failed and succeeded through 2020 together to tell their stories. It is this platform that allows us all to learn from one and other and grow as an industry,” says Chick.

“I am looking forward to and honoured to be participating in this year’s Summit so that I can contribute our successes and failures but most importantly listen to everyone’s experiences. 2021 is looking to pose a fresh range of challenges and by understanding others perspectives on the past year I believe it will strongly gear me up to prepare for the new challenges ahead of us.”

The Summit also provides an excellent opportunity to interact with industry peers throughout the day, particularly during the networking drinks once the conference is complete. And with yesterday’s news that drinking while standing is now allowed once more in New South Wales, it brings a whole new element of socialising to the event! Strong ticket sales suggest pub operators are very keen to get out and interact with their peers face to face, so this year’s Summit is shaping up to be a big one.
