The Academy of Food and Wine Service runs a number of events throughout the year including competitions, industry dinners and masterclasses. The purpose of these events is for attendees to network with friends and peers in the industry but also to gain product knowledge from the various sponsors. Our events also help to achieve the AFWS’ mission statement to raise the profile of front-of-house service as a career choice.
