Experts from investment and venture capital firms also reinforced their optimistic view of the relevance and attractiveness of this sector for them, at a panel discussion attended by top executives from European Capital Partners, Nazca and Corpfin Capital.
The attendees made several votes, one of which also reflected this vision of a future where the sector of bars and restaurants will specifically base their growth based on increased traffic (visits to their establishments).
There is also talk of a natural selection within the establishments and the supply of the sector, propitiated by the years of crisis and by the new demands of the consumer.
Factors that are already propitiating this new scenario, are several such as: tourism + a national consumer who wants to indulge, go back out, have fun and have fun, meet friends and live new experiences thanks to catering and hospitality ( According to Ken Hughes – CEO of Glacier Consulting – AECOC Shopper view, “Why people go to bars” by Nielsen and Index K, …) + new consumer opportunities outside the home and new needs + The growth of consumption on the go and take away + the increase of the senior target and the offer of health for young and old, among the most mentioned in the course of these two days.
