Register now for the 23rd American Express® Restaurant Trade Program at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, June 15-17, 2012. Join José Andrés (Think Food Group), Rick Bayless (Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, XOCO), Tom Colicchio (Craft Restaurants), Tim Love (Lonesome Dove, The Love Shack), Danny Meyer (Union Square Hospitality Group), Marcus Samuelsson (Red Rooster, Marc Burger, C-House), Ming Tsai (Blue Ginger), and others in the Colorado Rockies at the granddaddy of all food and wine events – the one that started it all 30 years ago: the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Be in an intimate setting with industry leaders, restaurateurs, and top chefs, learning from and networking with them and other attendees.
This year’s Trade Program features panels focusing on technology, marketing, and operations. Topics will include using technology to communicate with today’s diners, how small changes in your establishment can result in big payoffs, and using the media to promote your brand. There’s also a welcome reception on Thursday, exclusively for Trade Program attendees and panelists, and networking happy hours on Friday and Saturday.
The Restaurant Trade Program package – which includes the Trade panels, welcome reception and happy hours, plus all cooking demos, and early access to the grand tasting tents – is $1,125 if purchased before 3/15/12; $1,225 thereafter. When you use your American Express Card, you’ll receive an additional $40 savings. Note: The Trade Program sells out quickly, so reserve tickets soon.
