Top class venue

Liverpool’s L20 Hotel School restaurant welcomed experts from across the hospitality industry as it provided the setting for a recent debate.

The venue within Hugh Baird College, which provides a work-based learning facility for students training to work in hospitality, was picked by the North West commercial property and business magazine Move Commercial for its latest lunch debate feature.

L20 Hotel School director, Mike Mounfield was joined by fellow panellists Bob Prattey, chief executive of ACC Liverpool; and Alastair Shepherd, director of Liverpool-based architects Falconer Chester Hall, as they talked about the current rise in hotel developments across the region.

The discussion, set to feature in the February issue of Move Commercial, considered the driving force behind the hotel industry’s growth and the types of hotel being built, to the skills needed to secure the industry’s success and whether it is sustainable in the long term.

Delicious courses from the L20 Hotel School’s menu were also served to the panel by students and apprentices as the debate took place.

Following the debate, Mike said: “It’s nice that the sector has embraced what we do. To be sat around a table with people from the sector is something that wouldn’t have happened a year ago, but it has happened because we’re being taken seriously.”
