The 2011 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show programming was unprecedented in scope. This year's line-up included 83 NRA Show education sessions, including 3 "featured speaker" sessions and a special "add-on" session oriented toward helping exhibitors sell to the military.
In addition, 10 International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event (IWSB) education sessions, a "Restaurant Executive Breakfast" panel discussion, 14 culinary demonstrations and presentations led by 22 leading culinary experts, 8 book signing sessions by 10 influential authors; and a keynote address by General Colin L. Powell (ret.) who provided his perspective on the momentous changes taking place around the world.
The Association has invited all education sessions presenters to provide copies of their presentation materials. Those that have been submitted can be found and downloaded by clicking on going to the specific session name and clicking on the relevant speaker.
Recordings of all the sessions that have been granted permission to distribute will be made available on NRA Show Web site approximately June 10.
Proposals for NRA Show 2012 education sessions will be accepted soon after Labor Day. Instructions will be posted on the NRA Show Web site.
