With less than one week to go until the biggest event in the licensed hospitality sector, the ALMR is pleased to announce that the talented Marcus Brigstocke will host the 2014 ALMR Christmas Lunch.
The comedian and entertainer will take to the stage in front of 1,200 of the sector’s most influential delegates on Thursday 18 December at Old Billingsgate in London.
The ALMR Christmas Lunch has rightly earned a reputation as the biggest and best event in the licensed retail calendar and continues to promote the best of the sector through its slogan: one great lunch, one united industry.
ALMR Chief Executive, Kate Nicholls said: “We are very pleased to welcome Marcus to the ALMR Christmas Lunch, our largest and most prestigious event, for what promises to be another great event.
“The ALMR’s Christmas Lunch is the culmination of a year of hard work and a chance to reflect on the challenges and successes of the past twelve months. We have seen major ALMR wins such as a root and branch review of business rates, a 50% increase in rate relief for pubs and restaurants and cuts in the job tax for under-25s, plus the ALMR has continued to broaden and strengthen its voice with a 30% increase in membership. We will be unveiling some exciting new initiatives for the coming year to deliver ever improved benefits to members
“We hope all our guests enjoy the lunch and we look forward to a fruitful and prosperous 2015.”
