Earlier this month, Hastings MD Luke Butler had the pleasure of emceeing this year's Australian Hotelier Pub Leaders Summit in Sydney. Going strong for six years now, the Pub Leaders Summit is a one-day conference and mini-expo organised by Australian Hotelier magazine to help pub owners, licensees, and managers navigate the dynamic pub landscape.
It was one of the first large scale industry events in 12 months, and the program of speakers was exceptional. Packed with industry-leading influencers and community members, the program included presentations, discussions, and Q&A's providing practical business advice, new commercial ideas, and plenty of inspiration. The line up included Michael Rodrigues, Morgan Kelly, Jennifer Russell and Jess Miller to name a few.
From operators and regulators to publicans, suppliers, and brewers, it was great to connect, and we look forward to the next year's event.
