Australian Hotelier is pleased to announce that this year the Pub Leaders Summit will be heading to Queensland for the very first time, from 24-25 July.

Now in its seventh year, the conference and expo for Australia’s pub owners and operators has been held in Sydney and Melbourne, but never in the Sunshine State.

“Queensland has a very lively pub landscape, held in high esteem, and we can’t wait to bring the Pub Leaders Summit there,” states Australian Hotelier’s managing editor, Vanessa Cavasinni.

“We are incredibly excited to bring a dynamic program to Queensland, that we believe will be hugely beneficial to publicans all across the country.”

The event will be held at one of the most admired hotels in Australia – the award-winning Eatons Hill Hotel and Accommodation.

The conference program is being directly influenced by publicans and the topics that need the most attention right now. Last month, a survey was sent out to publicans, and you responded with the topics you want to see addressed within the conference: dealing with the current economic conditions; staffing shortages; F&B; gaming regulations; and data and loyalty systems. You can expect all of those topics and more to be covered by the program.

For the first time, the Pub Leaders Summit is also adding a second day to the itinerary. On Tuesday 25 July, the Pub Leaders Summit will run an optional half-day study tour of some of greater Brisbane’s most esteemed pubs, where publicans can see firsthand how some of the most forward-thinking and dynamic operators are running their venues. It’s a great way for publicans to network and draw inspiration for their own hotels.

There are plenty of details still to be announced for the Pub Leaders Summit, so keep an eye out on the Pub Leaders Summit website – where you can also purchase tickets – for more information and updates.

The 2023 Pub Leaders Summit will be held on 24-25 July 2023 at Eatons Hill Hotel & Accommodation. For more details, visit For sponsorship opportunities, contact Jason Wild on 0416 576 256 or at
