Catersource Call for Sessions Closes in 2 Weeks

Do you know how to connect sales and kitchen teams successfully?

Are you interested in sharing your knowledge about menu development?

Does your company book a good amount of high capacity non-high-end catering that you’d like to teach others about?

Do you know how to show others how to notch up their hotel catering?

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

There are TWO WEEKS 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.

Go to for an expanded version of this notice, full of ideas and prompts to get you thinking about the kind of information you’d like to impart, and how you’d like to convey it. Then, create an account and get started with your session proposal.

The deadline for submissions is May 25, 2018.

See you at #catersource!
