Catersource Call for Sessions Closes in 3 Weeks!

My clients are asking for food that also serves as healing, as medicine. How do I talk to chef about that?

I would like to start zero waste initiatives and food waste reduction across the board in my company. How can I get my team on board with this?

I would love some new techniques in qualifying clients.

Gen Z? Gen Z? I was just starting to understand millennials! Help me understand this new target, please.

These are just four of the “asks” our attendees of Catersource 2019 hope to hear about in 2020.

There are THREE WEEKS left to enter your session proposal before we are off to the races at Catersource, vetting our submissions enroute to building our 2020 education program!

Jonathan Jennings, a Top 15 speaker at Catersource 2019, wowed the audience with ideas regarding how to qualify clients in his, “Are You Qualified to Qualify?”

Here are some other details:

When: March 9–12, 2020 in Las Vegas, NV at Mandalay Bay. We’re excited to be back in Las Vegas with both tradeshow and conferences under the same roof. We are also co-locating Catersource with The Special Event, with a combined tradeshow floor that will bring over 8,500 professionals and 500 suppliers together to provide an unmatched opportunity to source, network and learn in one-sensory stimulating environment.

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 for the same reason: to be wowed with new products, new education, new ideas—and network, too.

The deadline for submissions is July 02, 2019.

See you at #catersource!
