WTWH Media, LLC, will launch two in-person events for the restaurant industry this year, the company announced this month.

The QSR Evolution Conference and the NextGen Restaurant Summit, co-located at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead in Atlanta, will take place September 6-7, 2023.

The QSR Evolution Conference, which is presented by QSR, will be the only industry event that focuses solely on the needs of quick-service restaurant operators. Attendees will hear and share perspectives on running the quick-service restaurant of the future.

The NextGen Restaurant Summit, which is presented by FSR, serves as a connecting point for the NextGen and emerging full-service restaurant brands that are defining the future of full-service restaurants.

Keynote speakers will be Andrew Cathy, CEO of Chick-fil-A; Trevor Haynes, president of Subway North America; and Chris Tomasso, CEO of First Watch.

Additional speakers include more than 80 accomplished industry leaders from across both sectors.

“Launching these events is a game-changing step for our brands,” said Greg Sanders, group publisher of QSR and FSR. “The opportunity to bring our unique audiences together in person to share and learn from one another is the perfect complement to our integrated media offerings.”

“The overwhelmingly positive response we’ve received from speaker invitations is telling,” said Danny Klein, editorial director of QSR and FSR. “There is pent-up demand for the education and networking these events will bring to the restaurant industry.”
