Twitter announces #RestaurantWeek campaign in June

Following the highly successful #MuseumWeek back in March, on Tuesday 6th May, Twitter UK announced that it is inviting restaurants across the UK and Ireland to sign up an exciting new initiative in June: #RestaurantWeek.

Taking place from 2nd – 8th June, the week-long social media campaign will focus on celebrating the industry and its offerings throughout the UK and Ireland, helping restaurant owners to connect with their local communities, showcase their menus, profile their staff and bring new customers through the door.


Supported by the British Hospitality Association, OpenTable and the Restaurants Association of Ireland, restaurants will be able to take part in #RestaurantWeek by signing up and tweeting with a different hashtag each day (to be revealed), giving customers a peek behind the kitchen door sand into the day-to-day running of a restaurant. Each hashtag will be specific to a different aspect of the industry; participating businesses can join in with as few or as many as they like.

According to the British Hospitality Association, more than 8 billion meals are sold in the UK each year, with over 20 million meals eaten out every day, making it a huge part of our daily lives, culture and economy. We think this campaign is a fantastic way for establishments both the UK and Ireland to shout out their offerings and really spread the word of food and dining through the powers of social media. Make sure you follow us on Twitter @TheInsuranceOct we we’ll be getting involved too!
