Stunning line up for Digital Summit

A host of visionary operators are set to take the stage at The Caterer Digital Summit.

Through a series of engaging speaker and panel sessions, the conference will explore all the technological advances that have the potential to power hospitality businesses in 2015 and beyond, including the latest on mobile technology, digital marketing and revenue management.

One of the most hotly anticipated sessions will be presented by Waitrose retail director Rob Collins.

The e-commerce expert will explain what hospitality can learn from the John Lewis Group in terms of data mining and marketing, and will address how the household name maintains its service culture.

Taking place at Kings Place in London on 12 May 2015, the Digital Summit will also address how to develop a modern digital strategy, ways to sell your services online, and how to create a coherent technology strategy throughout food and beverage service.

It will be opened by Sky News business anchor Ian King, who will share his thoughts on the disruptive influences on hospitality and how the landscape is being reshaped by technology.

Meanwhile, Sticky Walnut owner Gary Usher will take the stage to explain how an engaging social media strategy helped boost a successful crowdfunding campaign for his second site.

The restaurateur raised £100,000 in 30 days, to open sister restaurant Burnt Truffle. Usher drove the campaign largely through Twitter, and will share how he has used the medium to raise awareness and funding.

The Caterer deputy editor James Stagg said: "Through a series of lively, engaging and educational sessions, this year's Digital Summit will showcase all the technology and innovative thinking that's shaking up hospitality.

"We're bringing together an unrivalled collection of experts, both from within hospitality and from other sectors setting the pace, to provide a digital blueprint for a modern hospitality business."
