Build Smarter

A retreat for restaurant development, design and customer experience leaders.

RestaurantSpaces was created to bring together the nation’s top restaurant chains, in a casual setting, to explore the intersection of development, design, technology and customer experience.

Unlike other industry events, RestaurantSpaces is limited to a select audience and features a healthy balance of content, strategic sourcing opportunities, and memorable networking. The agenda features thought-provoking talks from industry experts as well as small group discussions on topics that are top-of-mind for today’s restaurant executives.

Another key feature of RestaurantSpaces is the opportunity to schedule one-on-one time with the industry’s leading service providers via our private event app. In addition to business and professional development, RestaurantSpaces also features a full agenda of unforgettable networking activities. All of this combined with the laid-back vibe of the Eden Roc in Miami Beach, will provide a setting that encourages the cross-pollination of ideas and establishment of meaningful relationships.

We look forward to collaborating with you in Miami Beach!
