The late night economy of pubs, bars, nightclubs and late night venues offering competitive socialising has staged an impressive bounce back from the Pandemic of 2020/2021 despite being the most impacted sector by government closures and restrictions.
New brands are emerging and existing operators evolving their customer offer and experience. Many more traditional leisure operators are trading into the later hours to maximise their revenues.
How will the future of the late night sector look and will regulators and the government support its growth.
The session will feature presentations from our panellists on the sector and their businesses.
We will then be joined by a panel of industry experts in the sector to discuss its evolution and recovery since the pandemic as well as opportunities and challenges in the market
The event will finish with networking drinks.
