“Guest speakers will share experiences/expertise on the theme of past, present, and future.

“The conference will provide the opportunity to reflect on the past and understand the differences/context in which licensed premises operated in 10/20 years ago … discuss the current challenges to licensed premises …  and to plan for the future to ensure we offer a variety of employment opportunities in the hospitality industry and a diverse choice of venues catering for a multi-cultural society.”
