Main Categories

The Nightclub and Bar Show can also be broken down into five main tracks that will be targeted in different ways.

1. The Guest Experience

As we move towards a new normal, guests will still want to feel safe as they begin to venture out to restaurants again. Comfort and sanitation will take a front seat. Sessions will address how businesses can deliver a guest experience that will attract new customers and generate new business for both dine-in and takeout customers.

2. Food and Beverage

During the pandemic, many businesses had to cut down on their menu offerings. Culinary experts will be offering valuable insights on ways to continue to create menus that help reduce overhead costs while also standing out from the competition. Workshops will also discuss ways to stay lean without sacrificing creativity and the latest beverage trends that can be leveraged to increase profits.

3. Operations

While this might not be the flashiest area to discuss, it is foundational to being able to enjoy profits and expansion. In fact, savvy financial strategies helped many businesses survive the pandemic. Attendees will learn how to run their businesses more efficiently and get operations under control in order to thrive in a challenging industry.

4. Staff and People

This track focuses on how to attract, train and retain the best talent. Topics will range from employee wellness to how to create a better company culture.

5. Marketing and Promotions

Standing out in a crowded and competitive field is a true challenge. Learn how to create effective messaging, develop an online presence, create a loyalty program, develop an email marketing strategy, improve advertising and public relations, and much more. 

Exhibiting at the 2021 Nightclub and Bar Show

For business owners, the conference offers a great opportunity for exposure and promotion. The event will be packed with decision-makers who are looking for new products and services.
