With tougher competition coupled with market nervousness, the cost of getting investment decisions wrong is higher than ever. CGA’s annual Future of Finance conference has gathered a panel of experts to examine where the market’s moving – and where both opportunities and bear-traps lie.
Market investor Jurriaan van der Schee, head of Europe & TMENA, private equity, at TriSpan, will join Mark Sheehan (pictured below right), managing director at Coffer Corporate Leisure, and Paul Newman (pictured left), head of hospitality & leisure, RSM, to discuss where the smart money is going, and why.
How growth and investment are being affected by legislation and the continuing uncertainty around Brexit will also be major themes of the market’s longest established finance forum.
The exclusive, invitation-only event for senior executives and finance professionals from the out-of-home food and drink market is being held at the 30 Euston Square State Room venue in London.
The packed programme will provide new and powerful insights into market trends, funding, property, costs and the health of the wider economy.
How technology is shaping consumers’ spending habits, as well as proving efficiency and productivity solutions for operators, will also feature prominently on the agenda, with Barclaycard providing an insight into the latest tech developments. A panel of tech experts, including PizzaExpress’s IT director Siobhan Fagan will debate the challenges for hospitality with CGA’s Peter Martin.
CGA’s own experts will examine the changing market landscape, revealing the latest market confidence ratings and new data contrasting the fortunes of Britain’s major towns and cities.
Leading industry commentator and CGA vice president Peter Martin will chair the seminar.
