The hospitality industry is in a state of reinvention. Today we unpack how with Co-Founder and Managing Director Corbonate, Candace MacDonald. The brand communications and creative services agency specialises in food, beverage and hospitality, and for the last 15 years, have been producing free trend reports for the industry, which we delve into in this episode. 

Tune in as we also explore solving some of the biggest challenges in our industry, the future of plant-based and what it means for the customer in 2023, the power of audio, and preparing for the Metaverse.
