VIBE Conference to Draw a High-powered Crowd

Whenever we speak with anyone about the upcoming VIBE Conference we’re presenting, the first question always asked is, “Who will be there?” Well, there is a lot of excitement about VIBE, so operator registrations and sponsorships are moving briskly, and various other groups are making their plans to attend. Here’s a quick run-down on the exclusive group you’ll interact with March 9-10 at the Palazzo in Las Vegas:

Leading Chain Operators — Among the chain restaurant companies represented will be HMS Host, Houlihan's, InterContinental Hotels Group, Marriott, Morton's The Steakhouse, OSI, Real Mex Foods, Princess Cruises, P.F. Chang's, Royal Caribbean International, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts and Wyndham Worldwide.

American Beverage Institute —
ABI will hold its member meeting on Monday, March 8, also at the Palazzo, so many of its members will be attending VIBE.

Millennium Advisory Board — Several MAB members are involved in Supersession presentations at the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show on Monday, March 8 and the morning of Tuesday, March 9. Attend those sessions to learn from their experiences, and then look for them at VIBE activities, as well.

Leading Supplier Executives —
National accounts, sales and marketing execs from top supplier companies — including representatives from Pinnacle Sponsors Crown Imports, Pernod Ricard USA and Constellation Wines US — will be on hand at VIBE, along with a host of additional companies. Check out for more sponsoring companies.

Tomorrow’s Beverage Leaders —
Students from UNLV’s Hospitality Management Program will be at VIBE, fulfilling their work experience requirement and helping make the conference a success. Look for them, talk to them and find out who the next stars will be!
