Stellar line up for ‘For Industry, By Industry’ HNZ conference 2023 –

One of the driving forces behind Australia’s biggest hospitality and accommodation empire will open Hospitality New Zealand’s conference and trade show in Auckland later this month.

Sam Egerton is General Manager of New Projects for Merivale Group, which owns 104 restaurants, pubs, bars and hotels across Australia, most of them in Greater Sydney.

He heads a program of speakers and sessions designed to inform, educate and entertain operators from across the hospitality sector.

This year the theme is ‘For Industry, By Industry’, and will feature motivational and subject speakers, expert sessions and panels that cover consumer trends, compliance, Chat GPT, and the serious workforce issues that are confronting the industry.

Outgoing Hospitality NZ Chief Executive, Julie White says she’s delighted they have been able to attract Sam Egerton to open the conference.

“It doesn’t get any bigger than Merivale in hospitality in our part of the world. They’ve built an amazing business and they’ve done that by being true innovators.

“Hearing from one of the guys at the forefront of that about how they’ve gone about it and how they see the future, will be a real treat for conference delegates.”

Tickets for the two-day event, which offers a huge selection of hospitality and accommodation trade exhibitors and networking opportunities, are now available. It will be held at the Pullman Hotel on June 27-28.

A first this year is a dedicated workforce summit, on day 2, where the industry, including officials from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, will explore and discuss key workforce issues and intergenerational comms.

Panels include Consumer Food & Beverage Trends, Sustainability in the industry, and the Educational Landscape, while breakout sessions include Compliance Trends in Gaming, growth mindsets and Courageous Conversations for Leaders.

A trade show with 60+ hospitality and accommodation industry suppliers will allow exhibitors to showcase the latest in sector developments and technology.

Also part of the event is the 25thth Lion Hospitality New Zealand Awards for Excellence. These celebrate the success, achievements and resilience of people in 20 categories from across the sector.

The Leader of the Year in the People’s Award category will be announced at a social event on the 27thth of June, the evening of Day 1. These include Leader of the Year in Hospitality, Accommodation, Future Leader of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Supplier of the Year.

The conference will conclude with a gala dinner on the 28thth where the winners of the Awards for Excellence will be announced, followed by the overall Supreme winner. The People’s Choice Award, chosen from the finalists list, will also be announced then.
