The Conversation is MCA’s weekly online event for hospitality leaders. On this week’s episode, MCA deputy editor Finn Scott-Delany and regular panellist, UK Hospitality’s Kate Nicholls, were joined by Deltic Group CEO Peter Marks and Boxpark CEO Roger Wade.

With the upcoming September rent day looming and furlough set to come to an end next month, our panellists discussed some of the ongoing issues hampering industry recovery.

As head of the UK’s largest nightclub operator, Marks emphasised the need for a roadmap and additional financial support for the late-night sector, while Wade shared his frustration at the obvious reluctance of government to enter the rent debate.
