A Special Announcement From Foodservice Equipment Reports: FER To Host New MUFES For Noncommercial Operators June 2011

Foodservice Equipment Reports will host a new Multiunit Foodservice Equipment Symposium next year, tailoring a two-day program covering the latest technological advances in foodservice equipment, supplies and facilities specifically for noncommercial operators across all the
segments.

MUFES for Noncommercial Operators, MUFES/NCO '11, will be held June 13-15, 2011, at the Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas. Following the pattern of the magazine's MUFES meetings for commercial operators, the symposium will be an invitation-only event, specifically for noncommercial-operator readers of FER and their suppliers, including consultants. The program will provide two full days of presentations on the very latest developments in energy savings, water savings and performance criteria for foodservice equipment and facilities, as well as sustainability best practices, process, channel and design issues and similar topics. As is the standard of all MUFES programs, only neutral, third-party presenters will be allowed to participate in the program.

The MUFES practice of limiting attendance to one supplier for every registered operator to foster inter-operator and supplier networking will also be followed. As is typical at MUFES meetings, suppliers must be customers of Gill Ashton Publishing.

A limited number of noncommercial operators will receive full "scholarships" to attend the meeting, including travel, hotel and the seminar fee. Those seeking to attend the conference will be afforded an opportunity to tell us why they will benefit from the program and why they should get a scholarship. More details will be available shortly.

More information on the meeting, including sponsorship opportunities and criteria, seminar fees, supplier and consultant attendance criteria, and hotel registration information will be available shortly. But save the dates: June 13-15, 2011.
