2020 MEG Conference

Every May in Chicago preceding the National Restaurant Association Show, MEG brings together over 300 marketers and suppliers to share insights and hear from respected speakers from inside and outside the industry. MEG's mission is to inspire, teach, connect and challenge restaurant marketing leaders by providing a community through which participants gain training and education, as well as participate in the exchange of ideas for the betterment of the industry. 


National Restaurant Association events are designed specifically for industry professionals who work directly for restaurant and foodservice operations, otherwise known as Operators.

We also invite Allied members as well as Allied companies who are not members of the Association to sponsor, support, and participate in our events. Allied companies are defined as industry suppliersdistributors, manufacturers, commodity groups, and other non-restaurant operator companies within the restaurant and foodservice industries.

If you are an Allied member company or with an Allied company who is not a member of the Association, you must sponsor the conference in order to attend. For available sponsorship opportunities, please contact Mia Roberts at mroberts@restaurant.org.

Consultants: If a restaurant or hospitality company outsources all marketing functions/needs, or does not have a marketing person on-staff, we will allow a registration on their behalf, but you must include the name of the company you are representing (please note this is strictly enforced and must be a client you currently represent).
