ROUNDTABLE WORKSHOPS

These hands-on workshops give restaurant executives a platform to discuss pressing business topics in a roundtable setting. Two sessions, offered concurrently, will allow groups of 25 operators to work through the top-of-mind issues that are most important to them. In each session, teams of two moderators will help drive group discussion and capture group results. Pre-set agendas will be further shaped during the workshop based on the needs and interests of the group. Operators can choose from one of two workshops:

Workshop #1
Vendor Negotiation and Implementation Strategies 

Workshop #2
Social Media Strategies
