An inside look at CREATE: The Future of Foodservice

Hundreds of restaurant operators gathered in Denver this month

Almost 500 foodservice executives gathered in Denver this month for CREATE: The Future of Foodservice, the annual event by Nation’s Restaurant News.

At the event, restaurant industry leaders including executives and entrepreneurs from the biggest brands and fast-growing emerging concepts came together to connect, learn and grow their businesses.

More than 40 operators were featured speakers at the event, and the winners of the 2022 CREATORS Awards and Hot Concepts Awards were honored. The program included immersive experiences such as the Cool Things Tour around Denver, Flavor Immersions, Pop Up Festivals that were never the same twice, off-site dinners, a closing party featuring a live band, a cornhole championship game hosted by the American Cornhole League and keynoter Bonin Bough who was on hand for networking and engagement with attendees.

Take a look at this gallery for an inside look at what you may have missed, and be sure to join us next October for CREATE in Palm Springs.
