New York Show’s Tech Pavilion Showcases Apps For Restaurant Industry

Who needs a desktop computer or a printed menu these days? Operators, dealers, specifiers and consultants can be freed from desktop devices with a wealth of apps and the devices on which they operate.

Menu apps and dining tablet technology will be showcased at the upcoming 2011 International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show with the launch of the i.Menu Expo. It will showcase developers of iPad and Android tablet apps, accessory manufacturers and hardware vendors, who will demonstrate the latest menu and back-end office solutions, including cost-effective ways to improve productivity and bottom lines.

The pavilion, hosted in partnership with i.Business magazine, is just one part of an area focusing on hundreds of technology resources. The 96th annual IHMRS runs Nov. 13-15 at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
