Highlights from the annual National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show are now available online. The NRA has launched an e-Learning component that features audio and video recordings of the show's most popular demonstrations and presentations year-round.
The NRA Show typically delivers more than 100 expert-led education sessions, panel discussions and culinary demonstrations. Multi-media presentations of select programs are now available online for industry professionals through the e-Learning feature.
"No other industry event offers more access to the world's top culinary, management and operational experts and trendsetters. The insights and ideas they provide to inspire and improve business are a big part of the NRA Show experience," said Jack Crawford, president and CEO of Ground Round Independent Owners Cooperative LLC (IOC).
This year's e-Learning includes culinary demonstrations from chefs including Rick Bayless and Marcus Samuelsson, and sessions by industry experts such as Nancy Kruse talking about menu trends and using profits to turn profits.
The e-Learning sessions also highlight how leading brands like Red Robin, Whole Foods and Buffalo Wild Wings are taking on marketing, local sourcing and workforce issues. In addition, viewers will learn about U.S. Small Business capital resources directly from the Small Business Administration, and how operators can start and sustain a food truck.
Audio presentations of other sessions can be purchased through the NRA Show website.
