Pub20, the UK’s only dedicated trade show for the pub industry, is back for a sixth year on 4 and 5 February 2020.
The free-to-attend show will welcome thousands of pub operators and owners, offering the chance to learn from industry experts, share ideas, meet suppliers, discover the latest industry trends and do some all-important networking.
Over 200 exhibitors will be tempting taste buds, whetting appetites and engaging brains with everything from food, drinks and vegan snacks to technology, streamline efficiency and pub quiz providers on display – all under one roof.
More than 60 expert speakers will be sharing their knowledge with visitors too. Engaging talks and tastings from industry heavyweights will feature hot topics including sustainability, food revenue opportunities, business growth, recruitment and more, to help improve pub experiences and profits across the country.
Pub20 will support every area of the pub business, and, to help keep fingers on the innovation pulse, there will be plenty of refreshing new things to see and do.
Reflecting greater demand for pub grub, this year’s show will welcome a brand-new area called Hungry Business, dedicated to showcasing food and snack providers. The focus on food continues with the Taste Table, in partnership with Brew City and supported by Rational and Brakes, which will feature new celebrity chef presentations, guided tastings and demonstrations.
The show will be full of new ideas too, such as Fever Tree’s DrinkX installation, themed around immersive experiences, innovation and turnkey solutions to bring a pub or bar to life.
Pubs are the glue that hold society together, so this year Pub20 will celebrate the people who are all about humanity and hospitality, with their brand-new awards. Designed to recognise the passion of publicans who drive the dynamic pub industry forward, along with pub chefs who are giving the sector a culinary makeover, The Pub Awards will champion the very best pubs in the UK. Winners will be announced on Tuesday 4 February during a special ceremony at PUB20.
The Pub Trends Report is back for a second year, available for guests to take away, while those looking to rub shoulders with other industry profesionals can pull up a bar stool at The Watering Hole, designed by Form Creative and fitted out by Faber Bespoke, grab a snack and, of course, have a tipple or two.
Pub20 commercial aanager Alex Booth said: “PUB20 will showcase the diverse and dynamic UK pub sector, celebrating the passion and innovation in the industry and ensuring visitors who are usually on the other side of the bar get treated to a brilliant day out too!”
