Aged Care Catering Summit

Improving aged care hospitality

As an industry, Aged Care has a lot to think about: the Royal Commission, new standards, audits and more. The Aged Care Catering Summit will provide expert speakers to help you stay informed and to make good decisions. The demands and expectations of Australia’s booming aged care sector are evolving and we are see huge changes in the way meals are prepared and served. At the Aged Care Catering Summit the industry will come together to discuss the latest trends and techniques. 

With its vibrant speaker program and networking opportunities, this conference will be held as part of the Foodservice Australia trade show at ICC Sydney, and is a high profile event on the aged care hospitality calendar. It will be held in Sydney on Tuesday 19 May 2020.
