2014 American Express Restaurant Trade Program Seminars

Be part of the 25th Annual American Express Restaurant Trade Program at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Friday, June 20 – Saturday, June 21, 2014.

American Express is proud to once again assemble leading hospitality professionals, chefs, and restaurateurs in Aspen during the Food & Wine Classic. The 25th annual Restaurant Trade program will include a panel moderated by Andrew Zimmern (Television Personality, Chef, Food Writer, and Teacher), featuring Barbara Lynch (Barbara Lynch Gruppo), Danny Meyer (Union Square Hospitality Group), and Jonathan Waxman (Barbuto) as they share experiences and advice from their decades in the industry. Another session will serve up cocktail and bar trends and ways to drive bar business.

Graham Elliot (Graham Elliot Bistro), Tom Colicchio (Craft Restaurants), and Sean Brock (Husk Restaurant) will weigh in on customer loyalty in the digital age. Plus, there will be networking opportunities at pre-panel continental breakfasts before the sessions, as well as during a Trade-only Happy Hour.

The Restaurant Trade Program package – which includes the Trade breakfasts and sessions, the Trade-only Happy Hour, and Trade-only early access to the Grand Tasting Tents, as well as to the consumer wine seminars and cooking demos – is $1,250 if purchased before 3/15/14; $1,350 thereafter.
