RestaurantPoint EAST is an exceptional forum for Chain Executives to connect and drive innovation. This intimate Event allows our ever evolving industry a new way to connect Executives with peers and Suppliers in a structured and efficient environment where business gets done, actionable insights gained and relationships forged. This invitation-only Event fosters knowledge sharing, best practices and forward thinking dialog amongst industry leaders. As opposed to a traditional trade show, our Events have several differentiators that provide for a worthwhile and beneficial experience:

Boardroom Presentations: Executives are pre-assigned to a small group of peers (7–9 Executives) who have expressed an interest in similar products/needs. Suppliers’ leadership teams present their latest innovations to this group in concise 20-minute presentations. A group leader is assigned to each group to ensure each presentation ends on time – it’s extremely efficient.
One-on-One Appointments: No exhibit area, the One-on-One appointments provide a private environment to discuss your interests/needs with Suppliers of your choice. These appointments are fifteen minutes in length and provide just enough time to determine next steps, if interested.
Keynote Sessions: Each day features a keynote or panel delivering actionable insights into trends of today and opportunities for the future. Their purpose is to inspire innovation, leadership and growth both to individuals and within organizations.
Networking: There are numerous opportunities daily which provide unique networking environments with both peers and Suppliers.
StorePoint Fashion is a customized experience where every moment is designed to maximize your business interaction. This unique opportunity connects you with industry leaders in meaningful ways, resulting in valuable take-aways for your business.


I’ve attended industry events for years. Often, I get one or two nuggets from the event. RestaurantPoint deconstructs the trade show element, optimizing my time and the time of the vendors.
– Vice President of Franchise Development, Dominos

If you only have the ability to attend one trade conference in a year, RestaurantPoint needs to be at the top of the list.
– Vice President, Design & Construction, HMS Host

A great way to meet with multiple vendors and to see products and services that you normally would not. The forum offers a quick start to new ideas.
– Senior Director of Equipment & Services, IPC/Subway

Most value I get in two and a half days of professional learning and growth.
– Senior Director of Design & Construction, Chick-fil-A
