Peach 20/20 Leaders Summit Agenda

Business leaders networking at the Peach 20/20 Conference  

Peach 20/20 Leaders Summit Agenda

This year’s summit will explore real opportunities for innovation, transformation and growth across the UK eating and drinking-out market - the forces shaping the sector’s future and the hurdles that will need to be overcome.

We’ll be:

  • Mapping out the economic and political landscapes

  • Asking how the need for vital funding will be met

  • Arguing for the sector to double down on investment in technology, sustainability, consumer insight and people

Our roster of expert and inspirational speakers will highlight the need to transform thinking to drive innovation and creativity alongside operational efficiencies. The Leaders' Summit will be followed by the Peach 20/20 Hero & Icon Awards dinner.

Expect the usual Peachy mix of invaluable, actionable insight, unrivalled networking, plus plenty of lively conversation.
