Insight and innovation at Pub19


A look ahead to bar and pub industry show Pub19, returning to Olympia London on 5 and 6 February

Pub19 is a key calendar date for the industry, presenting an exciting arena for networking with likeminded individuals, discovering upcoming trends and sharing information to help drive businesses forward.

2019’s highly anticipated show will feature a line-up of over 50 industry experts, senior figures and leading publicans, who will be discussing a spectrum of topics – all designed to inspire and continue to help pub operators of all sizes grow their business.

At the Pub Theatre stage, JD Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin will be talking about Growth in the Face of Adversity, while Lee Cash, owner of multisite operator Peach Pubs, Charlie McVeigh, founder of Draft House, and Joycelyn Neve, managing director of The Seafood Pub Co, will discuss Growing Your Business. Paul Dickinson, director of Food, Fuller, Smith & Turner, will speak about why Profit is in the Kitchen, and power-players Kate Nicholls, CEO of UK Hospitality, and Brigid Simmonds, chief executive of BBPA, will debate Tackling the Issues: Staff Turnover, Recruitment and Retention.

An array of new and unique features have been developed to help publicans increase sales, drive footfall and make the most of this year’s event. Pub19’s dedicated drinks area Thirsty Business will play host to The Trends Bar, which has been created in partnership with Fever-Tree and The Taproom. It will also feature a wealth of drink-specific exhibitors including the likes of Wolfpack Lager, Salcombe Brewery Co and Jubel.

The Barcade is the show’s central networking hub and the place to meet up, network, grab some lunch or simply sip a beer. Here, visitors can also take advantage of a variety of jovial bar games such as pool, fruit machines and shuffleboard.

Pub19 visitors will also be able to grab a copy of the exclusive Pub Trends Report which details the latest consumer insight for the UK pub industry. It comprises six pages of market data, alongside commentary on key emerging trends and an analysis of challenges and opportunities for pub and bar operators.
