PUB18, the only dedicated trade show for the UK pub industry, closed for another year following a record-breaking number of visitors to the show. Held on 6-7 February, the two-day show welcomed over 4,000 people.
With a double-digit percentage increase in visitors from last year’s show, more than a third of attendees stipulated that it was the draw of being able to discover more about the latest trends in the industry that made them want to visit.
Hosting over 200 top exhibitors, a wealth of industry knowledge was also showcased via the engaging PUB18 talks and workshops programme. Topics covered everything from day-to-day pub operations to wider industry talking points.
The panellist line-up for the sessions featured industry titans and innovators, as well as celebrity chef and Michelin-starred publican Tom Kerridge and pub personality Neil Morrissey, who hosted an invite only ‘Lock-In’ networking event.
