Hospitality Outlook 2022

In his presentation, Hospitality Outlook 2022: Living with Covid, KPMG partner Morgan Kelly will gaze into the crystal ball to reveal what’s in store for the hospitality sector.

He will explore the strategies hospitality operators in Australia and internationally have used to respond to Covid, and he will also identify the key trends expected to emerge over the next 12 months.

Kelly will also share new ways to ease these pressures through the use of data to improve revenue.

Unlocking future potential

Quantaco founder and CEO Anthony Sullivan will also be sharing insights aimed at helping pubs. “Data tells a story and by being able to read the story you will gain better business outcomes,” he says.

“Having a deep understanding of supplier data, customer data, employee data ensures a whole of business approach to running an operation. By measuring it, you can start to manage it.”

In his Pub Leaders Summit presentation, Key trends and actions to unlock future potential in your business, Sullivan will help demystify some of the terms used, unpack the component parts, and identify common trends that attendees can walk away and implement the very next day.

Hotel property values in a Covid world

JLL Hotels & Hospitality MD John Musca will take the stage on April 4 to share his top pub property predictions.

According to Musca the rise of corporate and syndicated capital flows, supply constraints, consolidation and record pricing have all played their part over the last two years. “Covid kept money cheap, and equity sought a home,” he says.

Operator fatigue, which saw some “getting off the roller-coaster after three years”, is another big issue that’s been affecting the pub property market, he says, along with the regionalisation of the market and the rise of greenfield and brownfield new hotel developments.

Musca will discuss these trends and what they mean for pub owners and operators in his presentation, Hotel property values in a Covid world, at the Pub Leaders Summit.

Many more experts and operators will be there on the day to share their insights including keynote presenter and workforce change expert Alicia Stephenson, me&u founder Stevan Premutico, and Jinesh Patel, CEO of the Gaming Technologies Association.
