Empowering Innovation

This year’s RC Show aims to empower operators to grow their business

From March 1 to 3, Toronto’s Enercare Centre will be alive with innovation as nine distinct stages showcase leading experts and educational sessions, including the CEO panel, designing new business models, the future of cannabis and the impact of changing demographics on the foodservice landscape. The event is more than just a trade show — it provides attendees with opportunities to network with industry colleagues.

This year’s RC Leadership Conference highlights the growing need to adapt as traditional business models are under attack and require new strategies. At this half-day event, gain actionable insights from experts on how to thrive by diversifying your revenue streams, culture, customers and menus.

And the 2020 Garland Discovered Culinary Competition will see chefs battle it out for a chance to win $5,000 in cash, prizes and an all-expenses-paid stage at a top restaurant.
