Today is also the deadline for engaging and informative presenters to nominate themselves for a speaking opportunity at the MURTEC Executive Summit. We want you to share your technology best practices, insights and lessons learned with an audience of senior-level restaurant operators in MURTEC Innovation Labs. 
 
Innovation Labs are interactive sessions designed to inspire attendee collaboration. Fifteen-minute presentations are followed by group discussion exercises that engage restaurant attendees and solution providers to share ideas and solve problems. 
 
Proposal Evaluation & Speaker Selection:
 
Proposals will be reviewed by the Hospitality Technology editorial team and the MURTEC Advisory Council (MAC). This group of senior-level restaurant technology executives will judge each proposal based on content and the speaker’s references. Highly-rated material will be selected for a second round of review that will include a call with HT editorial and at least one member of the MAC.

What is the MURTEC Executive Summit?
 
A sister event to MURTEC (Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Conference), the MURTEC Executive Summit will be an intimate gathering of senior-level executives, unique from other technology events in the industry. The format and content is designed to draw in technology thought leaders and influencers in a program that prioritizes group discussions, two-way dialogue, and collaboration amongst both peers and sponsors.
 
The audience of 75 senior-level technology decision makers and influencers from the nation’s leading and emerging restaurant brands will consist of C-suite, VP and director-level titles and is invitation only. Technology leaders will be joined by line-of-business executives who influence IT decisions – marketing, analytics, finance, customer experience and more.
 
The unique agenda includes collaboration exercises, with the intent to spark both peer-to-peer and peer-to-sponsor discussion. Sessions are designed to generate new ideas and conversations between attendees and technology experts. The strategic and relevant content focuses on driving innovation in today’s restaurant environment.  
 
The MURTEC Executive Summit offers a low pressure environment for building relationships with potential partners. The inaugural MURTEC Executive Summit will take place November 5-7, 2017 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
