On today's episode of All in the Industry®, Shari Bayer has another special episode from H.O.S.T. SUMMIT + SOCIAL, our first all-day conference, for and about our dynamic hospitality industry, which took place on Monday, January 27, 2020 at The William Vale in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  H.O.S.T. (HOSPITALITY. OPERATIONS. SERVICES. TECHNOLOGY.) featured top culinary and hospitality leaders, who have all been past guests on our show, in informative panel discussions and one-on-one-interviews, creating a forum for the exchange of ideas and innovation.  Over 250 hospitality professionals joined us for a full day of programming, which included networking opportunities with fabulous food and drinks.  Our overall theme, ""ALL IN”,  was carried throughout the day, from our panels to our curated lunch conversations to Shari's keynote address.

We realize that a lot has changed in our industry, and the world, since we hosted H.O.S.T. due to Covid-19, and the tremendous impact it has had on restaurants and the entire hospitality space.  We hope that you will still find our conversations to be inspiring and valuable in moving forward through this unprecedented time.

 

Many thanks to all of our panelists, partners, team and attendees who helped make our first summit so special.
