With so many topics and so little time, the National Restaurant Association's Marketing Executives Group (MEG) will host a new 24-hour format for its fall conference Oct. 23 and 24 at the Hyatt Grand in Downtown Denver, said Julia Kanouse, VP of strategic marketing, NRA.
MEG Fast-Forward: Big ideas for Marketing Executives Short on Time begins at noon on Oct. 23 and concludes Oct. 24 hours later, yet covers two full days of content. The TED Talks-style conference will feature industry influencers, tastemakers and proven leaders who will share their knowledge and expertise with attendees, Kanouse said.
"We are excited about the new format for MEG. To help meet attendee needs, it was important to create an event that delivers rich content and ample networking opportunities in a timeframe that works for today's busy marketers," she said.
Registration for MEG's bi-annual conference is now open and is $295 per person for NRA member and $795 for non-members. Those registering by July 31 will save $100 on the registration fee.
