The Global Restaurant Investment Forum 2018 (GRIF), the annual meeting place for the international restaurant investment community organised by Bench Events and powered by Michelin, has partnered with Palazzo Versace Dubai to host its fifth edition.
GRIF, which will be held from March 12 – 14, 2018, will bring together more than 300 investors, owners, franchisors and senior hospitality professionals to facilitate investment decision-making within the global restaurant space.
Jennifer Pettinger-Haines, managing director Middle East, Bench Events, said: “The global restaurant industry presents investors with some challenging dynamics currently, with start-up finance, rent demands, the social conscience, consumer brand loyalty, declining retail footfall and the growth of food delivery models all posing potential impediments to investment. At the same time, the industry is full of opportunities, such as those related to mixed-use concepts, the rise of boutique restaurant collections, authentic dining experiences, technology advances and service innovation. At GRIF 2018, we will debate these topics and many more, helping attendees gain valuable insights from industry leaders, build contacts, share best practices and gain confidence in the market.”
