Rising Tide LinkedIn Live: Stories from The National Restaurant Association Show 2024

Many of the Rising Tide LinkedIn Live Room regulars took to the road to converge on the National Restaurant Association Show 2024 in Chicago, Illinois. The annual trade show brings together the best and brightest in the hospitality industry to learn, network, and build.

A previous Rising Tide Room discussed best practices as it pertains to attending industry events large or small, but after being a part one of the largest restaurant shows, participants returned home with amazing stories. 

In yesterday’s LinkedIn Room, they shared these stories, which included landing face time with the great Robert Irvine!

Listen to the replay of yesterday’s conversations, and be sure to join us every Wednesday and Friday at 10am PST.
