See who is on the guest list at the Arena Face2Face Interview & Lunch

By Berenice, Thursday 22 September 2016

In just over a week the Arena Face2Face Interview & Lunch 2016 takes place at The Landmark, London. Join over 150 senior decision makers from a variety of foodservice manufacturers, wholesalers and operators including Nestle Professional, Unilever Food Solutions, Bidvest Foodservice, Brakes, Bestway Wholesale, ISS Facility Services Food & Hospitality, Elior UK, Compass Group UK & Ireland and BaxterStorey, to name a few, and benefit from a valuable day of insight and interaction.

Dennis Hogan, the managing director of Compass Group UK & Ireland, will talk openly about his business and the wider industry in a live interview with ITN’s Alastair Stewart.

And, the hot topic of Brexit will be debated in an exclusive panel discussion starting at 11am that will look at its impact on the foodservice and hospitality industry.  Chaired by James Bielby, CEO, Federation of Wholesale Distributors, panelists will include Ufi Ibrahim, CEO of the British Hospitality Association, Ian Wright CBE, the director general of the Food & Drink Federation and Phil Sermon, MD, Vapiano.

Driving innovation is one area that will be explored by Dennis Hogan and Alastair Stewart. Take a walk down your local high street and the choice of food now on offer would have been unimaginable a decade ago. People’s food tastes, as well as their consumption habits, have changed dramatically and the food service industry has changed with it. Dennis will discuss how crucial it is for food service providers to be agile, adapting to high street trends and ensuring they understand what customers want from a dining experience. Ongoing innovation is central to the future success of food service and Dennis will reveal how Compass is putting innovation at the heart of its business.

The popular event also offers attendees the opportunity to connect with fellow foodservice and hospitality industry professionals throughout, plus the five-star hospitality of one of London’s finest hotels.
