Falls' opening keynote will address social business strategy development for foodservice that leads to increased communities and sales.
“FSMU is the first and only specialized conference for restaurant and hospitality industry professionals where attendees connect, learn and share social media practices for community management, engagement, measurement and analytics. Many major brands such as Taco Bell, Firehouse Subs, Red Robin, ChowNow, profitstreams.com and hearsaysocial.com had strong participation,” said Michael Atkinson, President of FohBoh, Inc., and conference founder. “We’re continuing to build on the success of last year and expect more participation from not only restaurants, but foodservice vendors as well” he adds.
Attendees of this conference will include a wide array of human resources, operations, marketing, social media and community managers, finance, real estate, purchasing, media, technology and business development professionals and decision makers for restaurant chains, independent operators, service providers, food manufacturers, media, technology and other hospitality group participants.
“This conference will bring together many different titles and functions that should network together to benchmark the best social media practices that help businesses move forward and stay ahead in this industry,” said Kathy Doyle, SVP of Sales and Marketing for NetWorld Alliance, FohBoh's conference partner. “It’s the only one of its kind serving the foodservice industry.”
Breakout session topics include interpreting social media conversations, the science of social media analytics, the practice of online customer/community and brand management, measuring guest satisfaction and social+mobile marketing campaigns that win.
