The flagship conference, and its accompanying Hero & Icon awards ceremony, will return to London on November 17.
The new advisory board consists of:
- Karen Jones CBE, executive chair of Prezzo, chair of Hawksmoor, Mowgli and Frontier Pubs, and a NED at Deliveroo and Crown Estates.
- Nisha Katona MBE, founder and CEO of Mowgli Street Food
- Simon Potts, CEO at The Alchemist
- Alex Reilley, co-founder and executive chair at Loungers
- Emma Woods, former CEO at Wagamama and NED at The Gym Group
Emma Woods will also be co-chair for this year’s conference, alongside Peach 20/20 founder and executive director Peter Martin.
I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve been able to assemble such a talented and experienced group of individuals to help us develop the big conference themes for what is a critical time for the out-of-home market,” said Martin. “Their insight will be invaluable in bringing fresh perspectives as we build a programme to shape future hospitality thinking.”
Said Karen Jones: “Peach 20/20 is a genuinely enjoyable and thought provoking industry event. It’s one that those involved in hospitality really want to go to and treat seriously.”
Alex Reilley added: “Peach 20/20 is a must-attend event in the hospitality calendar. Informative, thought-provoking and, most importantly, immense fun. It’s when hospitality colleagues and friends gather in one room and celebrate our wonderful sector, in style.”
Peach 20/20 is now also at the heart of a comprehensive, year-round programme of face-to-face and virtual events for sector leaders and innovators, starting in July.
With the new focus in 2021 also comes a new venue for the main invitation-only 20/20 gathering, when it moves to Exhibition London, a newly opened events and conference complex in the heart of White City and the Westfield development.
The COVID crisis has taught us the value of staying in touch year-round, as well the real need for people to have face-to-face interaction again. As hospitality re-emerges and reboots, never has it been more important to stay engaged,” concluded Martin.
CGA is proud to be principle partner of Peach 20/20.
