The conference season has officially kicked in and I will be seeing many of you this next week.  Starting off on Sunday, I will be speaking at the International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York that will be held at the Javits Center. I will be talking about how technology is changing the landscape of restaurants and digging into the world of web3 and how it could change the way you approach the concept of loyalty with your guest. If you are attending this show, I will be speaking at 3pm so make sure you don’t miss it!

Without a moment to spare, I will be uttering my last words as I head out the door to catch a flight to Vegas. There I will see you at MURTEC at the Paris Hotel and be speaking at 1pm on Sunday. It is going to be an awesome Firechat where Kevin Seo, Co-Founder of Bored and Hungry, and I will be doing a session on the metaverse 101. It has evolved so much, just in the past few months, I can’t wait to share our thoughts on where it was and where it is going. A fascinating chat that is a must see and one that people will be talking about the rest of the conference.

Big show today…. Big, big show.  Did I mention this is a big show? He’s been here before and I am honored to have him back.  Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine joins me for a riveting conversation about all the things that are going on in his life. Everything he does touches or contributes in one way or another to the Robert Irvine Foundation whose sole mission is to strengthen the physical and mental well-being of our service members, veterans, first responders and their families.

Of course, we will be talking about his new book, Overcoming Impossible and having some very interesting conversations around his thoughts of how technology is a key element to success. We even go so far to discuss if AI is going to take over the human race…. Is it? Well, you will have to listen to find out. I really enjoy talking to Robert and I hope you also enjoy our chat.

How To Contact Me

Coming Soon...

So, New York Food Show, MURTEC, lots of places to meet up and say hello so please do so. I always look forward to hanging out and catching up with all of you. And if you would like to be on this show and are up to something that you think this audience would like to hear, let me know as I will have my recording gear with me during this trip.

Also, for anybody that is interested in the world of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality and want to learn how this is going to impact the world of hospitality, this would also be a good time to strike up a conversation. I have just started up a brand-new committee for the VR/AR Association and we are looking for like-minded leaders that what to help revolutionize the customer experience. This billion-dollar industry is literally untapped when it comes to the hospitality space.

You know, after MURTEC, that Toby Malbec and I must do our obligatory coverage of the show so for those of you who are not able to attend, be on the lookout for that podcast very soon! Time to prepare, pack and get ready for these upcoming trips. 

So to all of you, I say stay safe, stay healthy and stay hungry my friends.
