Every Tuesday in October at 1:00PM Central, we'll present thought leadership talks from experts in foodservice equipment and design. In the style of a TED Talk, these presenters discuss how to evolve to meet the new ways consumers wish to interact with restaurants and foodservice establishments. Weekly programming includes the opportunity to participate in a lively Q&A with the presenters.
