Tribute to a Legend

Remembering Michael Roman and an award in his honor

Catersource founder Michael Roman was the first to believe in the strength and contributions of our industry.
He saw the opportunity to educate and inspire and created Catersource to help catering and event professionals reach their full potential.

This year we’ll pay tribute to Mike and celebrate his vision of continuing professional growth for caterers as we name the first ever Michael Roman Lifetime Achievement Award Winner. This award will be presented in recognition of someone who upholds a commitment to the craft, a dedication to lifelong learning and a level of success that adds value to the industry as a whole. Bernice Roman will present the award at the Opening Session on Monday.

On Tuesday, March 25, join Bernice and Mike’s family for the Mix & Mingle Tribute event in his honor. Join others who have been touched by Mike’s teachings and compassion for a casual evening of sharing, reminiscing and honoring Mike’s contributions.

If Mike touched your life in some way, please come and take part in this very special evening in the Attendee Lounge.

A message from Bernice Roman:

I want to thank everyone who sent their well wishes to our family after Mike’s passing. It touches our hearts to know that Mike made such a profound impact on so many people. I’m looking forward to being at the get together in honor of Mike for the chance to talk to so many of you who touched his life as well. It will be an opportunity for all of us to share our stories and pay tribute to him.
