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: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
