Big Table Group’s property director Matthew Ainger, Popeyes UK’s chief development officer Tom Byng and Itsu’s property director Vishal Talreja, will discuss the opportunity for well-capitalised businesses looking to grow in the post-pandemic property market at MCA’s Restaurant Conference next month.

This special panel session will explore which geographical locations are proving most promising, what new considerations operators have for site specification, and just how much rent levels have undergone a reset.

Taking place at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on Wednesday 3 November, MCA’s annual sell-out Restaurant Conference returns for its first live event since 2019, and will see sector leaders coming together network, share vision and strategy, and digest the current dynamics of the sector through a day of keynote speeches, insight presentation, panel discussions and Q&As.

Also speaking at the event will be Paula Mackenzie, KFC UK & Ireland’s managing director; John Eckbert, CEO Five Guys, Minister Paul Scully, Jeremy King, CEO, Corbin & King; and Lord Mark Price, former Waitrose MD and founder of employee engagement platform WorkL.
