The bar and restaurant industry has been significantly impacted by the pandemic and in an immediate effort to support the industry, Bar & Restaurant launched Evolve, a six-month education and networking program to keep operators informed and engaged during the toughest winter months. Now that there are emerging signs of recovery, a vital next step is to bring the industry together in a safe, in person environment and apply these key new learnings to get business back to work.

Tim McLucas, Vice President, Bar & Restaurant, Questex said, “The pandemic has had a devastating effect on bars, restaurants and hospitality venues. Supporting the industry to get their premises open again as quickly as possible is our main priority, and providing access to the latest education, new products, innovation, and know-how in a live setting, is an important component of this recovery. A major focus of the event will be on food – helping small and mid-sized operators purchase mobile kitchen equipment, introduce new menu items, sample new food products, and attract new guests. This is a pivotal moment to strengthen the industry for long term future success.”
