2020 RESTAURANT TECHNOLOGY SERIES – THE NEW FRONTIER
Aligning Technology and Operations for Changing Times


Each year CohnReznick’s restaurant technology summits draw hundreds of strategic thinkers in the industry to discuss practical solutions for how restaurants can leverage technology to achieve their business vision. Needless to say, this year is unlike any other for the restaurant industry, and our RestTech series will be different too.

Our 2020 RestTech program is going virtual with a series of webinars held every Wednesday from September 16, 2020 through October 14, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:00pm EDT.

Technology is the lifeline for restaurant companies to make it out of this pandemic and succeed on the other side. Join our webinar series in which industry leaders will share changes made to operations and technology that have enabled them to reimagine their business strategies and flourish during this challenging time.

Announcing the Agenda


2020 Program Agenda

The 2020 RestTech program will include the following topics:

Low Touch, High Hospitality - Ordering and Payments
September 16, 2020

Off-premises is Here to Stay!

Operators are realizing that the off-premises revenue channel is here to stay. Tune in to hear how some of the leading operators have creatively embraced and capitalized on this revenue stream, such as the increase in delivery, take-out, catering, creative menu options, family meals, ghost kitchens, meal kits, curbside pick-up, and parking lot pop-ups, just to name a few.

Systems that Support Business Agility

Listen in to some of the best solutions that have helped operators to be nimble and decisive in times of great financial pressure.

Guest and Employee Engagement

The pandemic has thrown a dagger into our old beliefs surrounding both customer and employee engagement. As the restaurant landscape changes, so do our workforce and consumer. Tune into this conversation surrounding innovative operational and tech strategies for engagement with the new guest and employee.

Safety First: Guest and Employee Health
October 14, 2020
Social distancing, over-and obvious sanitization, PPE, temperature checks, employee wellness, and food safety are all top of mind for guests, employees and owners.
