Evans & Co and 200 Hospitality Partner for Manchester Event

Evans & Co Hospitality Accountants and 200 Hospitality have joined forces to bring you the ultimate workshop for hospitality:

Spend Less, Make More.

Taking place at Joshua Brooks in Manchester on September 11th, Evans & Co Founder Gareth Evans describes the event as “this year’s most important workshop for hospitality owners and operators.”

Gareth will be joined by 200 Hospitality Founder Joe McDonnell, who’s passionate about the future of the hospitality industry.

“It’s about reshaping the way we see the restaurant scene, with a key focus on how to spend less by identifying cost-saving opportunities within the hospitality industry. Not only that, we’ll be looking at ways to make more by identifying profit making opportunities alongside ways to drive growth, nurture talent and foster vitality.”

The event will include a panel discussion and sessions from guest speakers – and of course – great food and drinks. It will be an excellent chance for local business owners and operators to network and gain some unique insights.

Tickets are priced at £99 and are available HERE.
