Much More Than Presentations


The unproductive days of aimlessly strolling an expo floor are over! In advance of the forum, participants of RestaurantSpaces are able to login to our private network and schedule facetime with the service providers and supplier companies that interest them most.


In addition to thought-provoking talks, RestaurantSpaces also includes numerous opportunities for casual discussions amongst peers. With a delegation of leading senior executives from the nation’s largest chains, we realize the potential for these organic conversations.


Wouldn’t it be fun to travel to Mexico and sit in a conference center all day? Yeah, didn’t think so! We know that a prime reason people attend conferences is to network. Which is why we carefully consider the social activities that take place at the event. The social activities will be announced soon!
