Caterersearch users are being given the opportunity to save £100 on tickets for the inaugural UK Restaurant Summit by Allegra Strategies.
The summit, to be held 9 June at the Millennium Mayfair hotel in London's Grosvenor Square, will feature some of the biggest names in the restaurant sector sharing their thoughts and tips on how to survive the recession.
Confirmed speakers and panellists include David Page, chairman of Clapham House Group; Channel 4 chairman and restaurateur Luke Johnson; Ian Neill, chairman of Wagamama; Jamie Barber, managing director of Steam Roller Restaurants, the owner of Hush and Villandry; and Jeffrey Young, managing director of Allegra Strategies.
Companies confirmed as attending include Coco-Cola Enterprises, Yum!, Giraffe, McDonald's, Whitbread, Sodexo, Mitchells & Butlers and Nando's.
The all-day event will be followed by a networking reception.
Steve Gotham, senior analyst at Allegra Strategies, said: "The economic slowdown is leading to a shake-out in the restaurant sector, in which only the most skilfully managed, better funded and more customer-centric operators will survive."
Caterersearch users can purchase a ticket for £330, representing a discount of £100 on the standard ticket face-value of £430 by contacting Allegra events co-ordinator Amar Thapen on 020 7691 8843 or via e-mail quoting Caterer.
