HOSPITALITY businesses from across the North East will be finding out how to stay afloat in the current tough market at an event in Newcastle tomorrow.

A panel of six people ranging from pub owners to restaurateurs will be talking about the steps businesses can take to beat the economic downturn.

The event is being hosted by RCM Stocktaking Solutions at the Town Wall pub in Newcastle.

Richard Macdonald, owner of RCM Stocktaking, said: “This free event will be in the style of Question Time, albeit more informal.

“We're inviting lots of like-minded business owners and managers in the trade for a beer, local food and the chance to ask any questions they have to the panel.

"I've found that successful businesses have invested before and during the recession, which has helped keep their offering fresh and appealing to customers. These businesses are stronger than ever while others have fallen by the wayside.”

The evening’s panelists include Andy Hook, managing director of Blackfriars Restaurant, Adam Munday, hotel general manager of Hotel Indigo Newcastle and Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill, Ramandeep Walia, general manager of Browns Bar & Brasserie, Christina Denton from Fresh Element, Alastair Gilmour from Cheers North East and Richard Macdonald from RCM Stocktaking.
