Hi Martin,

Sorry for the delayed answer - Sam is right, the manufacturer sponsored events are invite only, and have gotten "tighter" over the years. You might try asking some of your manufacturer reps (not the broker reps, but the ones who actually work for the manufacturers). Try the big potato and protein companies.

Greetings Martin,
There are no free sponsored after events hosted by the NRA. The NRA's major event outside of the trade show is the Michael E. Hurst Student Forum and the Salute To Excellence Gala.
The other types of events you mentioned are private invite only. The alcohol manufactures actually do not have the major events that you would imagine. In addition the alcohol industry is spread pretty thin because NABCA is going on the same time as our show. For a listing of events during the show check out www.restaurant.org and select the show tab.
Hope that helps.
Sam

Martin... I don't usually sign up for these type of sites, but this one has been well done. I've referred your site to some of my close friends in the restaurant business here in Canada eh!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
