Innovation Forums (please choose 1 of 6)

At the Global Restaurant Leadership Conference, we’re examining the people, innovations and forces that will change your business for the foreseeable future. We’ll look at the factors revolutionizing restaurant development and expansion and how operators go to market for a decade, a generation or a lifetime.  Led by the brightest and most innovative entrepreneurs in foodservice, GRLC's Innovation Forums feature global “hot topics” and powerful messages designed to spark new ideas. 

Option 1: Operations -  
Option 2:  Future of Food 
Option 3: Franchising -  
Option 4: Technology 
Option 5: Sustainability in Motion: How Operators are Building Environmental Stewardship into Better Business (PRESENTATION)

Just as consumers now expect more in terms of the food they eat, they are also beginning to take note of restaurants’ “green” practices for management of supplies, buildings and infrastructure. Major global and regional chains are making important changes and—importantly—promoting them aggressively, indicating that they have reason to believe “green” positioning resonates with their customers. Walk away from this session equipped with the forward-looking initiatives industry leaders are deploying to become more sustainable and build business off of it.
