How Atlantic Club is making waves in global hospitality

Peter Martin’s Atlantic Club is an exclusive, international forum, bringing together the brightest and best brains in the UK and US restaurant and bar markets.

Ambitious businesses are increasingly looking internationally for operational inspiration, growth and investment opportunities, with the trans-Atlantic route still the one most travelled.

Hence Peter, with his reputation as being one of the most influential and well-connected communicators and community-builders in the out-of-home food and drink sector, has developed the Atlantic Club network for like-minded senior executives and entrepreneurs to share best practice, gain new insights and connect and learn from global and local experts and fellow leaders.

The club’s programme of specialist seminars and networking events, together with insight and data-driven fact-finding tours, has already taken in events in Dallas, Chicago, Washington DC, London and Manchester in the UK.

Each month members will receive Peter Martin’s exclusive Making Waves newsletter providing profiles and a global take on the key issues affecting the food and drink scene on both sides of the Atlantic. Register here to receive it:


Once the hospitality sector emerges from this emergency, the need for global co-operation and sharing of best practice will be greater than ever.
