16th Annual UCLA Extension Restaurant Industry Conference
Highly regarded as a premiere annual industry event, the conference includes among its attendees restaurant operators, lenders, private equity investors, investment bankers, suppliers, and professional advisers.
From our "State of the Industry" address, to our highly insightful panels, to the astute comments of our Innovation Award winner and keynote speakers (Jerry Deitchle, CEO of BJ's Restaurants, Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group, and Chip Conley, CEO of Joie de Vivre Hospitality), we will provide restaurant executives with the tools and information they need to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities the next year holds. During the Conference, we will learn how restaurant companies are building remarkable brands, highlighting their distinctive cultures, appealing directly and instinctively to their target audiences, and generating strong loyalty to their concepts. Recognized experts will share best strategies for engaging your guests and ensuring higher traffic.
