The National Restaurant Association Show organizers have created robust schedule of educational sessions.

National Restaurant Association Show expands educational sessions

The prospect of learning from the experts continues to capture my interest

With the National Restaurant Association Show starting May 18, I’m getting myself ready for the trip from Dallas to Chicago to meet with operators, to ask them what they are looking for among the expansive exhibits, and, of course, to attend some of the educational sessions.

The show’s education sessions run for the duration of the show —  Saturday, May 18, through Tuesday, May 21 —in what show organizers tout as an expanded track for all aspects of the restaurant business.

The schedule of educational sessions is provided at the National Restaurant Association Show website.

Topics, addressed by operators and experts, range from conquering high turnover rates among employees to technology’s pivotal role in the U.S. restaurant industry.

I’m especially interested in the session on “The Disappearing Dayparts” and changing consumer behaviors, which will no doubt touch on indulgence and snacking. I’m a snacker.

I will be hanging around the Nation’s Restaurant News booth (No. 6001 in the North Hall, for those keeping track of the geography). I look forward to meeting you.
