Beyond the Craft new dates: April 4-8 2022.

Ordermentum, Australian hospo’s favourite ordering and payments platform, is launching the first online trade show for the hospitality industry. It’s  free, you can access it from your phone, and it’s an easy way for venues to find new products and suppliers, and for suppliers to get connected with venues who want to buy from them. 

Initially slated for March, the event was postponed until April 4-8 due to the devastating floods that impacted a portion of the Ordermentum network. 

This five day online celebration of venues and suppliers is now going ahead, and has been created as a way to invigorate the industry after an incredibly challenging few years of lockdowns and uncertainty.

While hospo is bouncing back from COVID and venues are filling up around the country,  the industry still needs support. Events like this bring people together and are an easy way to foster long-term relationships. It’s a chance for venues to think about ways they want to add to their business and jump on any food trends. 

“The event may be digital, but supplier/venue relationships have incredible longevity, and it’s our hope that this event sparks many long-term partnerships,” says CEO of Ordermentum, Adam Theobald.  “It’s not often you get the chance to ask questions to multiple suppliers at the same time.” 

The online event will be held from April 4-8 2022,  and venues can visit the landing page and download the Ordermentum app whenever is convenient to them during that week. Venues will be able to check out new suppliers, access special deals, and meet the people behind the product.

Additionally,  new insights will be released each day from an impressive line up of speakers who’ll shed light on hospitality’s biggest themes right now. 

Hospitality experts Sam Sgambellone from ForPurposeCo and Michael Fox from Fable Food Co will discuss sustainability in hospitality and what venues need to do next to contribute to a better food system.  Kim Teo from Mr Yum speaks about digitisation and why venues who aren’t streamlining their internal operations are losing out. And we celebrate women in hospo with Giuls Treuner (Owner of Giuls in Surry Hills), and Petra Kanalosova Owner of Beast & Co).

“All of these topics are so important for the hospitality industry right now,” says Theobald. “The past two years has accelerated a lot of change and made us realise how important it is to act on things we care about. I think anyone working in hospo should be interested in the insights from these amazing guests.”
