Details are now being released for the 2018 Pub Leaders Summit.

To be held on 19 March 2018, the Pub Leaders Summit will once again bring together publicans, pub owners, operators and upper management to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities in the industry.

Now in its third year, alongside platinum sponsor Intrust Super, the one-day conference and expo will be held at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney. The expo will cover services as broad as superannuation and cleaning, to goods as varied as beverages and kitchen equipment.

The conference program will cover various facets of pub operations, including gaming, creating pub identity, new opportunities related to food offerings, and the rise of the brewpub. With the program yet to be released, confirmed speakers include Jackie Booth, COO of Zagame Corporation; Marcello Colosimo, CEO of Momento Hospitality; Stephen Hunt, director of Hunt Hospitality; Jaz Mooney, managing director of Pelathon; and Kasie Ferguson, owner/operator of the Railway Hotel Parkes.

Adding a new element to the conference format this year, the mid-afternoon session will be broken into two streams, to cover even more topics. It will also allow attendees to choose between topics so that they can have the most relevant experience for their business.

“Delegates and sponsors have given us terrific feedback from the first two Pub Leaders Summits. This year we’re enabling delegates to tailor their experience a little more, allowing them to choose between a selection of different presentations. This should make the Summit even more valuable to attendees,” stated Paul Wootton, publisher of Australian Hotelier and founder of the Pub Leaders Summit.

Tickets are now available on the Pub Leaders Summit website for pub operators, owners, licensees and managers for the earlybird price of $249 + GST until 19 February 2018. From 20 February tickets will be priced at $349 + GST. Suppliers may purchase tickets for $599 + GST.
