Future of hospitality sector under the microscope

The future of the hospitality and leisure sector will come under the spotlight at an event in Bristol  later this month.

The event takes place at the offices  of Evelyn Partners in Portwall Place on Wednesday, 28th June and is targeted at business owners and finance teams in the hospitality and leisure, and food and drink sectors.

Kelly Jones, partner and head of assurance and business services at Evelyn Partners in Bristol, and her colleagues Katherine Colledge, partner, business tax and Lynne Blakey, director, advisory consulting, will look at the challenges in the sector and the actions that businesses can take to overcome them.

Meanwhile, representatives from commercial agent Christie & Co. will provide a market update, with a speaker from dairy company Yeo Valley discussing sustainability within the sector. A local business will also share insights into operating in the current environment and lessons learned along the way.

“The industry is facing a very challenging trading environment with over 1,500 insolvencies in the accommodation and food service industry in the last six months,” said Lynne Blakey.

“Having most recently borne the brunt of testing economic conditions with energy and wage costs spiralling, the event will focus on the practical issues and steps that businesses in the sector should take to not only survive but to thrive, as we head towards the summer.”

The event takes place at Evelyn Partners’ office in Portwall Place, Portwall Lane, Bristol, from 3-5pm on Wednesday, 28th June, followed by a drinks and canapes networking reception.
