Catersource Call for Sessions Closes in 1 Week

Do you have some high level social media strategies you are willing to share?

Could you talk about how to start a catering or event business from the ground up, from idea to execution?

Are your buffets and action stations the talk of your town?

Are you willing to share how your company excels at Bar/Bat Mitzvahs?

These are just four of the “asks” our attendees of Catersource 2018 hope to hear about in 2019, via our post show survey.

There is ONE WEEK left to enter your session proposal before we are off to the races at Catersource, vetting our submissions enroute to building our 2019 education program!

Your deadline is May 25.

Here are some other details:

When: February 24-27, 2019 in New Orleans, LA at the Morial Convention Center. We’re excited to be back in New Orleans with both tradeshow and conferences under the same roof. We have the premier location within the convention center and plan to integrate conference & networking into all aspects of the four days. 

Our audience: Our audience is comprised of top-level professionals who have been in the industry a long time, but also may bring new hires, and/or recently promoted chefs, managers, and salespeople. Attendees may be representing a small company in a big town, a big company in a small town…or a $500 million-dollar company in a densely populated metro area. But they are all at Catersource & AOCF for the same reason: to be wowed with new products, new education, and new ideas—and network, too.

The deadline for submissions is May 25, 2018.

See you at #catersource!
