The National Restaurant Association has opened attendee registration for its 2011 Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show and International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event (IWSB). A special “early bird” online-only discount is available for restaurant and hospitality industry professionals who register before Dec. 1, 2010. National Restaurant Association members receive free registration for the NRA Show and a member-exclusive rate on IWSB registration. Attendees may register online at www.restaurant.org/show or www.winespiritsbeer.org.
NRA Show 2011 will be held May 21-24 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. IWSB 2011 will be held in conjunction with the NRA Show on May 22-23, and is the only beverage alcohol event exclusively focused on growing restaurant and hospitality bar programs.
“NRA Show 2011 will provide more opportunities and business leads than any other industry event, and registering now gives you access to all four days of world-class events, education sessions and a bustling exhibit floor for only $30,” said David Gilbert, chief operating officer of the National Restaurant Association. “And IWSB is the one place where attendees will find everything they need to build better and more profitable bar programs.”
Before December 1, registration for the NRA Show is only $30, and IWSB registration is $85. Between December 2 and April 15, 2011, NRA Show registration is $45 and IWSB registration is $100. After April 15, registration fees increase to $90 for the NRA Show and $145 for IWSB.
National Restaurant Association members may register free of charge and receive a value-added discounted rate of $55 when registering for IWSB at any time.
