GGRA’s 3rd Annual Industry Conference

April 10 – 11, 2017

Bently Reserve

301 Battery St. San Francisco



Panelists discuss restaurant operating models relative to increased costs of doing business at the 2nd annual GGRA Industry Conference. April 11 - 12, 2016

 The GGRA’s annual Industry Conference is a must-attend event for Bay Area restaurant owners and operators as well as hospitality industry stakeholders and service providers. The conference is a unique opportunity for the industry to come together for two days of highly relevant, curated programming. In 2016, more than 350 attendees across the hospitality sector joined us for dynamic conversations, gained insights from their peers, and had their questions answered.

Topics for this year’s conference include diversity and immigration, hiring and team building to prevent employee churn, a review of labor laws unique to the Bay Area, strategies to grow your business, food waste reduction tactics and cost-saving measures, as well as the return of our hands-on Chef Professional Development sessions targeted at developing skills for sous chefs and line cooks.

We will return to the Bently Reserve on April 10 – 11, 2017 and hope you’ll join us. The GGRA industry conference is also a great opportunity to connect with your peers and colleagues in the industry. Restaurant work can be isolating and its important to remember that the community shares its challenges and its voice is strengthened when multiplied. The GGRA acts as a force multiplier for the Bay Area restaurant industry and your voice and experience plays an important role in the work that we do. Join us at the 3rd annual Industry Conference to have your questions answered and prepare for what’s ahead in 2017.

We look forward to seeing you April 10 – 11, 2017 at the historic Bently Reserve in San Francisco. Check out the schedule below and get tickets.
