The Summit is the number one European Platform for the restaurant Industry.
The Summit is the number one European Platform for the restaurant Industry. Issues we discuss are trendsetting and on tomorrow’s agenda. Together we have created a think tank to analyze the most important changes in the industry as well as an annual forum where we may all share our thoughts on a regular basis. The people who join us are the industry leaders who shape the European restaurant landscape for the future.
Main players (entrepreneurs/senior management) of the multi-unit restaurant and catering industry as well as suppliers and consultants. Seats are limited for suppliers and consultants. There is a maximum of 250 participants to keep the atmosphere intimate. Be a part of the best community and help create a strong Pan-European network!
The past European Foodservice Summits (2000-2018) have been very successful. Every year this major platform for main players in the European away-from-home market has attracted more than 200 senior foodservice executives from 20+ nations.
