Flavor Summit

Flavor Summit Program Summary

Throughout quality-focused, volume foodservice, American menus and the  American dining experience are undergoing a revolution in flavor. As never before, diners are expressing an interest in freshness, world cuisines and authenticity, flavor experimentation, and new menu formats and dining concepts.  The Flavor Summit brings together each year a select group of top food and beverage directors, corporate and executive chefs, and other experts in American foodservice to explore, discuss, and taste their way through a stimulating, critical set of hospitality and related kitchen and dining management issues. This invitational leadership retreat welcomes as its core audience 35 to 40 talented individuals drawn from the following sectors:

  • Hotels, Resorts, Casinos, and Cruise Lines: corporate chefs, corporate food and beverage directors, and corporate vice presidents, as well as food and beverage directors and executive chefs from some of our country’s largest, most significant properties
  • Upper Tier Chain/Multi-Unit Restaurants: vice presidents of food and beverage, corporate chefs, and R&D chefs in the upper tiers of this sector

We look forward to welcoming another group of influential food, beverage, and hospitality executives to next year's Flavor Summit, March 10-12, 2021.
