About the Summit
This Summit presents a full program of solutions-focused educational sessions offering insights from across the restaurant environment, including technology, operations, finance and marketing. Key decision-makers will be able to share strategies and exchange ideas outside of departmental silos, with the collective goal of staying in front of industry trends, preserving financial health, and positioning their companies for growth. Peer-to-peer collaboration and networking with the hospitality industry's leading technology solution providers provide additional value to attendees.
2010 Theme & Sessions
This year's focus is "Priority Initiatives and Growth Opportunities in the New Hospitality Dynamic." Over the past 18 months, a number of societal, technological and economic factors have converged, resulting in a very different landscape for foodservice operations - in effect, a "new hospitality dynamic."
The End of "Business as Usual"
The industry overall is collectively ready to embrace getting "back-to-business," but it's no longer business as usual. Today's restaurant customers are more value conscious than ever before and come armed with instant access to information via mobile devices and social media.
The educational sessions at the Summit will help you identify priority initiatives and growth opportunities that will give you an edge. Speakers - senior-level restaurant executives and trends analysts - will share ideas for improving operations through technology, while also capturing consumers in new and innovative ways, including:
- Ubertrends: Socially Engaging the New Era Guest
- A New Design Model for Business Innovation
- Technology Super Session: Technology that Drives Top-Line Growth
- Rebuilding Your Workforce
- Impact of National Policy: Unprecedented Change
- CFO Perspectives: Managing the Cost of Change
- Insights into an Award-Winning Initiative
A keynote address by Michael Tchong, a popular speaker and founder of Ubercool Inc., will focus on "Ubertrends" in consumer behavior, technology choices and short-term vs. long-term opportunities.
