Restaurateurs and other foodservice industry professionals will find take-home tools and solutions to improve restaurant businesses with more than 70 education sessions at the 2011 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show – set for May 21-24 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
The sessions are free to all attendees registered for NRA Show 2011, and will tackle such issues as social media and commerce, increasing sustainability efforts, new technology innovations, what the new dietary guidelines will mean to restaurant operators, and how philanthropy can boost business and other topics critical to operator success.
“Trends, challenges and technologies are constantly evolving in the restaurant industry, and operators need to stay up-to-speed in order to maximize their business opportunities now and into the future,” said C.W. Craig Reed, Convention Chair for NRA Show 2011 and Director of Food and Beverage, Broadmoor Hotel. “We focus the educational component of the NRA Show on proven best-practices and tactics that can be immediately implemented, as well as built into long-term strategies, and tailor information to various industry segments.”
