"Meet the Experts" Event

Presenting Sponsors:


You have questions. We have Experts.

Imagine a room full of restaurant and hospitality industry experts ready to help you with your business. That's "Meet the Experts" and you're invited.

Each year, this popular event offers restaurant operators the opportunity to speak one-on-one with experts in a variety of fields including staffing, insurance, taxes, purchasing, marketing, public relations, licensing and more. While enjoying a fun, casual evening with good food and drinks, attendees can sign-up to sit with selected experts to ask questions, get advice, and exchange business info to keep the conversation going in the future. It's speed-coaching and power networking!

The date for the 2017 Meet the Experts event will be announced shortly. Please check back soon for more information and to register. To contact the IRA Membership department, call 1-800-572-1086 or email
