What could the second lockdown mean for the UK’s 50,000 pubs? How will these new restrictions impact an already beleaguered industry? Have the unintended consequences of these measures been considered – or is the government at risk of taking action that will simply lead to a further increase in unregulated private gatherings, where transmission of the virus is easier? Join us to discuss these issues, and to explore and examine how UK hospitality might overcome this immense challenge.
The event will be live-streamed on the IEA’s YouTube Channel. You can set a reminder here.
