Kate Nicholls brings unmissable updates from Westminster to the Arena Savoy Lecture

By Berenice, Thursday 14 February 2019

With direct links to Government, the Arena Savoy Lecture’s headline speaker, Kate Nicholls, UKHospitality’s CEO, is uniquely placed to provide in-depth insights into the political process and likely next steps as we exit the EU and enter the next phase of Brexit planning.

Since October, UKHospitality has been part of weekly meetings with the Secretary of State and Food Minister at DEFRA on no deal Brexit planning as well as fortnightly meetings with the Tourism team in DCMS and quarterly meetings at No 10, including business council briefings with the PM, Chancellor, Business Secretary and Brexit Secretary on the EU negotiations.

Kate will share her unparalleled insight with hospitality professionals, just nine days before we are due to leave the EU, making the Arena Savoy Lecture an unmissable event for anyone seeking up-to-the-minute information on Brexit and core issues impacting the industry, such as food security and supply, tariffs quotas and prices, and labour supply and migration.

The debate will open further, as other industry leaders from across the sectors give their differing opinions and approaches to the unprecedented situation, including the challenges and opportunities Brexit brings and running a successful business in times of change and uncertainty.

Arena events are designed to enable attendees to make connections and develop relationships with fellow foodservice and hospitality professionals, and the Arena Savoy Lecture is no exception. During the drinks and canapé reception and three-course dinner with wine, colleagues from across the industry will have opportunities to discuss ideas and issues.

Starting at 5.30pm, this is an unmissable event for anyone working within foodservice and hospitality.  Tickets are available now. Click here for more information and to buy tickets online or contact Lorraine Wood by email or on 07803 853 618.
