What happens when you arrive at the show?

When you arrive, you will check-in with the assistance of our friendly welcome team who will provide you with a colour coded lanyard indicating whether you are an existing publican or just starting your journey in the pub trade. This will help our team to make sure you can make the most of the day, so make sure you have the correct colour!

You’ll also receive the fantastic show guide which will help you plan your eilive day, letting you know who you can meet and where they are.
