Reinventing the HORECA scene

As the world opens back for business, restaurant owners are facing steep costs to reopen, including hiring back staff, paying off invoices and replacing spoiled ingredients, sometimes refurbishing entire dining areas to accommodate safe distances between diners, and investing in sanitizing products and technologies. 

This session will reveal opportunities not only for the businesses still standing after an unexpected and brutal culling, but also for the entrepreneurs and pioneers willing to set up in an uncharted territory.
