It was another successful turnout at the Restaurant Facility Management Association's (RFMA) Annual Conference this year hosted in Phoenix, Arizona. The three day Annual Conference opened on March 4th, 2018 with an approximated 1800+ restaurant facility professionals converging on the city to gather with peers, vendors and other industry movers and shakers under one big roof. It’s three days of building relationships, learning from speakers and education sessions, sharing knowledge, networking, and gathering new resources. All in a fun-filled setting surrounded by the restaurant industry’s best and brightest.
Ecotrak FM was located in Booth #441 on the Exhibit Floor that opened on Monday morning after the General Session and Restaurant Round-table meetings. We were excited and a bit overwhelmed. With nearly 200 booth visitors in the first 2 hours, we consistently provided back-to-back demonstrations of our industry leading asset management platform to the masses! The response was nothing short of incredible. The restaurant facility professionals that visited our booth fully understood and grasped the logic behind our cloud based asset and facility management platform. It was evident to them that Ecotrak is a system designed by restaurant professionals for restaurant professionals.
On Monday evening, Ecotrak hosted our Annual Client Appreciation Mixer at the one and only Culinary Dropout restaurant in Phoenix, AZ. The event was co-sponsored by some of our Trusted Service Providers Eversoft, PR Construction, Reliant Electrical Service and Las Colinas Company. It was such a pleasure and honor to bring our restaurant customers and trusted vendors together for a great night of food and drink. Breaking Bread and Being Inspired was the theme of the night and we had an absolute blast.
Our raffle BIG WINNER this year was Will Cash, Director of Procurement at Krispy Kreme! Will won a Playstation 4 Call of Duty WWII bundle to take home to his very excited family. This was Will's first time ever attending RFMA's Annual Conference. What a way to experience your first RFMA! Congrats, Will!
Ladies and Gentlemen! We have A Match!
Jim Gilbert, Director of Facilities for Burgerville USA and Ecotrak's Chief Marketing Officer, Erich Munzner, were a perfect match to take a spin on the RFMA Prize Wheel! They were to report that they won.....a couple of plastic water bottles. Erich was just happy to meet Jim and the two then connected for an in-depth demonstration of the platform. A definite Win/Win for everybody!
The festivities concluded with an awesome closing party and rodeo show at the HUGE Corona Ranch.
UNTIL NEXT YEAR! SEE YOU IN AUSTIN FOR RFMA 2019!!
