PUB20, the UK’s only dedicated trade show for the pub industry, is back for a sixth year in 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 with their peers (at the bar of course!).
The Pub Show Returns to Olympia, 4th & 5th February 2020.
Over 200 exhibitors will be tempting taste buds, whetting appetites and engaging brains with everything from food, drinks and vegan snacks, to technology to 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. All sessions are free-to-attend; simply register for your free ticket in advance to book your place.
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:
- Food, glorious food….reflecting greater demand for pub grub, PUB20 will feature more deliciousness than ever, with 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, featuring new celebrity chef presentations, guided tastings and demonstrations. PUB20 really is the perfect place to pick up tips and trends, get great advice and inspiration for all things edible and profitable.
- 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 your 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 4th February 2020 during a special ceremony at PUB20.
There are new take-away trends to digest, with ‘The PUB Trends Report’ back for a second year – so if you’ve ever wanted to know what your customers look for most in a landlord, be sure to grab a copy!
Regular visitors to The Pub Show will know that rubbing shoulders with other industry professionals is a key part of PUB20, so be sure to 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 Manager, 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!”
