Arena launches ‘Hospitality Reopening - The Global View’ virtual event - 21 July 2020

By Berenice, Tuesday 30 June 2020

On Tuesday 21 July Arena will bring together three global hospitality leaders in a live online event to share their Covid-19 experience and how they're recovering: Catherine Roe, CEO, Elior UK representing the UK; Naim Maadad, Founder and CEO, Gates Hospitality, Dubai representing the Middle East and Barry Westrum, Chief Marketing Officer, Taco John's, Los Angeles representing the USA.

Our panellists will discuss how Covid-19 affected their business and the wider hospitality industry in their respective countries, the strategies they have in place to enable them to return to a ‘new normal’, the challenges being faced and how they are working with their suppliers to help them recover. The discussion will be hosted by Robert Willock, Director of the Economist Corporate Network Dubai and formerly Group Editor of The Publican’s Morning Advertiser and M&C Report.

Why attend?

The discussion will provide you with ideas and shared knowledge to take back to your own businesses, providing opportunities to innovate and collaborate with your colleagues, customers and suppliers.

There will also be the opportunity to join the conversation and ask questions to the panelists in this live event and the opportunity to network afterwards.

Some of the key topics for discussion are:

  • How Covid-19 affected Elior UK, Taco John’s and Gates Hospitality and what they did to respond
  • What the trends are as these businesses emerge out of lockdown
  • What practical changes are being made that other companies can learn from
  • The current challenges being faced
