2021 saw a continuation of one of the most disruptive and difficult periods for the leisure sector, and of course, the country as a whole. With the strong signs of recovery but new areas of challenge such as rising costs, supply shortages and staff wages, what can we look forward to in 2022?

The Leisure Property Forum annual review is one of our flagship events and a must-attend event, providing attendees the opportunity to hear from four major industry experts who will cover the economy, F&B market, non-food/Big Box Leisure sector and investment market.

Our experts will review the big events of 2021, as well as take a look at how the sector has learned from the experience, with examples of innovation and adaptation across many aspects of leisure and hospitality. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion discussing and expanding on key trends and challenges in our sector.

The Event will be chaired by Emma Mackenzie, Head of Asset Management & ESG at NewRiver.

After last year’s virtual event we are delighted to say this will be a physical event, unless there are any changes in restrictions, with networking afterwards courtesy of our generous sponsors, Gowling WLG.
