Then, on Day 2, industry professionals will spend the day engaging in educational lectures and demonstrations. Butchery, coffee, IPAs, food writing and hot chocolate are among the topics that will be discussed.

Breakfast, lunch, snacks and happy hour will be included for the all-day affair on March 6.
