3 reasons not to miss our new sustainability conference

Be part of a groundbreaking effort to spearhead sustainability efforts in the restaurant industry. Our sustainability summit is a first for the industry and exclusively for restaurant professionals.

When: Oct. 18 and 19

Where: NRA  headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Join sustainability and sourcing experts from the leading restaurant brands to share best practices, creative solutions and emerging opportunities. We’ll discuss waste reduction, sustainable sourcing, water conservation, consumer marketing and more. Take part in a candid conversation on the industry’s progress in reducing our environmental impact for consumers and our bottom lines.

Here are three reasons why you should attend:

  1. Sustainability is more than just a trend, and it’s here to stay. Don’t fall behind. Our research shows that most consumers say eco-friendliness is a strong factor when considering where to dine out. 
  2. Peer-to-peer networking with dozens of restaurant pros from top brands.  This is an excellent opportunity to meet new industry leaders in sourcing and sustainability and grow your network.  Representatives from McDonald’s, Yum and Arby’s will be there, to name just a few.
  3. Meet with National Restaurant Association staff. Our sustainability experts Jeff Clark and Laura Abshire are eager to help you devise a sustainability strategy that makes sense for your operation.
