Pack your bags and lace up your most comfortable shoes: conference season is underway in the foodservice industry. From the National Restaurant Association’s massive May show to the Society for Hospitality and Foodservice Management’s annual event in September, summer is prime time for educational sessions, peer connections and more than a few vendor fairs. FoodService Director spoke to operators from across noncommercial foodservice to gather their top tips on getting the most out of this whirlwind time.
