Last day of EXPO features great Idea Zone line up!

The Idea Zone is a new feature of the Louisiana Foodservice and Hospitality EXPO—now celebrating its 59th year. The Saturday and Sunday line-ups have been covered in previous weeks and boast a whole host of topics to inspire and inform you—to become more profitable.

Dig in to the final day at the EXPO by getting one of your LRA SIF Safety Dividend criteria met. “The Risk of Doing Business,” starts at 10:30 a.m. and LRA SIF VP of Loss Prevention Victor Balbuena will provide valuable perspective on the most common workers’ comp claims frequency and severity.  Members of the SIF attending this session will receive credit towards their Safety Dividend criteria. You must register in advance to attend this session.

Ned Fasullo of Transformyx follows with “Digital Interactive Signage Strategies for Restaurants” at noon. Fasullo will share facets of digital signage both in a static and interactive implementation for restaurants. Secrets will be revealed for selling advertising to other businesses to potentially cover the costs of this technology and perhaps deliver you a nice profit too!

Closing out the Idea Zone and the 59th EXPO, legendary restaurateur Dickie Brennan will discuss the movement to rebuild the Louisiana farming business and share his knowledge and insight about working with local producers to deliver the best local ingredients to diners in your restaurant. Learn how you can connect to local farmers using Louisiana Market Maker, a resource of the Louisiana Dept. of Agriculture.

Registration to attend the EXPO is open. Restaurant members of the LRA receive four free passes if they register before July 15. Beginning July 16, LRA restaurant members will be charged $10 per person for admission to the EXPO.
