Good Food Symposium presented by Lightspeed

Venue: Collingwood Yards

Address: 35 Johnston St, Collingwood, 3066

The editors of Good Food, along with industry champions, are hosting the Good Food Hospitality Symposium presented by Lightspeed, in response to the growing challenges facing our beloved hospitality industry.

We’ve read the stories about the struggles facing restaurants, cafes and bars. Good Food is taking action and asking “What can we do about it?”

Join us in the conversation. Industry and the general public are invited to the first Good Food Hospitality Symposium presented by Lightspeed on Monday the 17th of June in Melbourne, and Monday the 24th of June in Sydney.

Our Melbourne panellists are:

Charlie Carrington, Chef and Owner, Atlas Dining
Almay Jordaan, Owner and Executive Chef, Old Palm Liquor & Neighbourhood Wine
Leon Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer, The Mulberry Group
Kate Reid, Founder and Co-owner, Lune Croissanterie
Patrick Ryan-Parker, Senior Manager New Business, Lightspeed


Our Sydney panellists are:
Alessandro Pavoni, Chef and Restauranteur, a’Mare,Ormeggio, Chiosco and Postino Osteria
Huss Rachin, Co-owner of Bread Shoppe, Snack Shoppe and My Mother’s Cousin
Palisa Anderson, Boon Lucky Farm and Chat Thai
Rebecca Fanning, Director Arthur, Jane and Fior
Patrick Ryan-Parker, Senior Manager New Business Lightspeed

While the Good Food Hospitality Symposium is aimed at Australia’s hospitality industry, there will be a strong consumer focus, too.

Conversations will centre around the impact the rising costs of dining out is having on diners, and if that means they’re willing to take a gamble on new venues and new dishes, or stick to what they know.
