Education Sessions

TRA Marketplace is specifically designed to give restaurateurs the tools they need to seat more tables, sell more food and make more money. The show is everything you need and nothing you don't: national insights, key connections, industry trends, new technology and great ideas, all wrapped up in lots of local colors and Texas flavor.

Learning opportunities come in a variety of shapes and sizes - including interactive sessions, keynote presentation, and live demos - which not only provide the answers you need, but serve up a big shot of inspiration and energy you'll take back to your restaurant.

Our show has three stages for educational presentations, themed after the Lone Star State: The Big Bend Big Ideas Stage, presented by Texas Mutual features industry leaders and experts sharing their insights on a wide array of trending topics. Silicon Hills Technology Stage, presented by Coca-Cola showcases dynamic 30-minute interactive sessions on key operational issues. The Panhandle Culinary Theater has a full kitchen setup and provides inspiration courtesy of some of Texas' most celebrated and successful restaurateurs and chefs.
