Ask Arena: ‘From Reopening Roadmap to Recovery’ - CLICK HERE to watch the webinar recording

By Berenice, Friday 25 June 2021

Yesterday, we hosted a fascinating webinar, in partnership with CGA, looking at the impact of the pandemic on the sector, how operators have reacted and what are the key challenges going forward after 'Freedom Day'. Read on and watch the recording of the fascinating discussion.


Whilst it wasn't all 'doom and gloom', it's obvious there are still some challenges that lie ahead. The hospitality sector has lost £80bn of revenue through the pandemic but despite this there is optimism. If you missed the session you can see the full recording here and a huge thanks to our speakers Karl Chessell and Peter Martin from CGA, Will Lees-Jones from JWLees Brewery and Mel Marriott from Darwin & Wallace.
