What do the bright lights of Las Vegas, over 1200 attendees,
an outstanding exhibit hall and fabulous education sessions equal? RFMA 2012!
Our annual conference this year was held March 4-6 at the beautiful Mirage
hotel and convention center in Las Vegas. Our conference brought over 380
restaurateurs nationwide to join with vendor companies for this year’s
conference. RFMA 2012 started off with a bang as over 800 attendees joined us
in the Mirage’s Secret Garden to watch high flying dolphins, beautiful tigers,
and majestic lions light up of the night. At our general session, RFMA introduced
RFMA Gives and the beneficiaries of this year’s project, Brad and Libby with
the SAME Café located in Denver, Colorado. The Passing Zone ended the general session
and helped continue the high energy with juggling bowling ball and chainsaws.
Many education sessions were held both days providing attendees
with a variety of different topic options. From tips and tricks in Excel, to
how to cut energy costs, or Disaster Management, these education sessions were
informative and diverse in subject matter. Intermixed within the education
sessions, the Exhibit Hall provided restaurateurs many wonderful regional and
nationwide vendors advertising and promoting their products and services. We
ended the conference on a high note at our Closing Party where we danced the
night away with Elvis, bonded with new RFMA friends, and maybe even went home with
some custom ink. Thanks to all of those who participated and attended RFMA 2012.
We can’t wait to begin plans on RFMA 2013 in Orlando!
