11:00am – 12:00pm Panel 2 – The Fine Art of Conscious Dining
The fine dining scene is drawing the world to Southeast Asia, fueled largely by the increasingly well-travelled and affluent consumers who are looking for more experiential dining and unique produce. At the same time, concerns for food safety, provenance and sustainability are growing among both consumers and chefs alike.
In an industry which is constantly faced with changing consumer tastes, labour scarcity and escalating costs, can a restaurant really balance profitability and business viability with social and environmental responsibility? How does one continue to engage with consumers to ensure brand loyalty?
Come attend this session and hear from leading chef-owners on how they’ve managed to maintain their competitive edge without compromising on social responsibility and gain valuable insights into the world of your customers from two of Asia’s most influential taste makers.
02:00pm – 03:00pm Panel 3 – Going Digital
What does digital transformation mean for the food and drink industry? As customer behaviors and needs change, the industry must have the flexibility to adjust business practices in order to meet those changes. Listen to the movers and shakers from across the spectrum of F&B – from the innovators and think tanks coming up with the next big thing, those revolutionizing the way we buy our groceries and the way we make dinner reservations, to businesses that are harnessing technology effectively – and understand what it takes to truly leverage Digital in today’s climate.
