The National Restaurant Association (NRA) announced the education sessions for the NRA Show at Chicago’s McCormick Place, May 18-21.
The more than 100 sessions offer show attendees the opportunity to grow their industry knowledge while leveraging and expanding their professional and business networks.
“We develop programs focused on the pain points restaurateurs around the world face each day, and on opportunities that they can take advantage of to grow their businesses,” said Marc Lapides, vice president of marketing, programming and communications for the show. “Revenue growth, managing a workforce in a tight labor market, digital marketing, leveraging restaurant technology and uncovering trends to shape menus are all part of the program. There are multiple sessions for every operator, regardless of size or segment.”

There will also be various focused tracks, including:
