‘Gather’ was started by fintech startup Wi5 to encourage collaboration in the hospitality industry during the coronavirus crisis

The forum targets owners and senior executives of restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars and nightclubs and acts as a platform for them to gather and share information, resources and ideas during the global pandemic.

‘Having worked closely with our clients and friends in the industry since the coronavirus crisis took hold, it has been clear that there is a real sense of togetherness in the hospitality community, but there’s been a need for a simple communication channel for operators to collaborate and help each other through these challenging times, said Gavin Peters, chief marketing & strategy officer at Wi5.

‘This forum is all about creating a positive environment to help operators get proactive and creative, and, along with partners such as HospoLive [the new live streaming service by Think Hospitality], help the industry come back stronger than ever.’

Gather is open to all topics of discussion and has already facilitated collaborations on content and comms strategies, supply chain management and remote staff training.

If you want to be part of the discussion, all you have to do is register here.
