We wanted BII Members to be the first to see the line-up for PUB19, including the thought-provoking J D Wetherspoon’s Chairman Tim Martin.

Martin, who founded the successful pub giant J D Wetherspoon is well known for his candid view on a number of issues impacting the industry, most recently Brexit and the role of social media after shutting down all of the company’s accounts. At PUB19, Martin will be speaking with Peter Martin, Vice President of CGA, on the topic of Growth in the Face of Adversity.
