The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA), Hospitality Ulster and professional services company Deloitte are to host four free live webinars to help businesses and stakeholders from the beer and pub sectors prepare for Brexit.
The focus will be on the challenges for the brewing and pub sectors as we leave the EU, but each live webinar session is open to ALL drinks and hospitality organisations and will feature an hour of expert advice from a Deloitte consultant, followed by an open Q&A of 30 minutes. The webinars will also be recorded for those unable to make the live sessions.
