CSP Information Group announced that FohBoh Inc. will be the exclusive B2B social-business media partner for its 2010 Restaurant Leadership conference being held April 19–21 at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. As the exclusive partner, Restaurant Leadership will be able to extend its conference communications to FohBoh's more than 13,000 global restaurant industry members.
"You can't go a day without reading about social media and the enormous impact that it's having on our day-to-day lives," says David Jobe, president of CSP's Leadership Conferences. "For the restaurant channel, FohBoh's mission of creating an environment to share ideas, get feedback, make connections to learn and do business is dead-on with Restaurant Leadership's purpose, and our relationship will be a terrific extension for both organizations."
"FohBoh is extremely passionate about this industry and about developing the most thriving, vibrant online community to help serve its B2B needs," says Michael L. Atkinson, CEO of FohBoh. "The Restaurant Leadership conference agenda, especially its focus on social media in the industry, really puts them at the forefront of bear-hugging this new medium and helping people in the industry better understand its benefits and capabilities. This fits right in with our own efforts, including getting the restaurant industry to better use Internet technology and the social Web."
Held each spring in Scottsdale, Arizona, Restaurant Leadership is an invitation-only conference where top executives, leading operators, and suppliers from the restaurant industry share new ideas and solutions to industry issues while participating in activities that promote networking and relationship building. More than 1,000 industry executives attend educational sessions, share experiential learning, and listen to speakers that have included former president George H. W. Bush, Michael Eisner, George Mitchell, Steve Forbes, Malcolm Gladwell, and Terry Bradshaw.
