In Pictures: Connect Live

Catersource + The Special Event may seem like a distant memory for some, while for others it seems like we were just in Anaheim last week. To help get you excited for next year's event (happening March 27-30 in Orlando) lets take a look back at Connect Live! Who knows! Maybe you'll even find some inspiration for your own events. 

And keep an eye out for the 2023 agenda in the next few months!
