On Monday, June 4, 2018, the fifth annual Welcome Conference is being held in New York City at Alice Tully Hall. Hosted by Will Guidara of Make It Nice and Anthony Rudolf of Co.Create, the event is being co-curated by Brian Canlis of Canlis restaurant. The conference will feature industry speakers including Kevin Boehm (BOKA), Dan Barber (Blue Hill at Stone Barns), and Patrick O’Connell (The Inn at Little Washington) — as well as talks from Seth Meyers, Michael Che, and filmmaker Lori Silverbush.
Attendance at the event has grown from a few hundred to nearly a thousand over the last five years, Rudolf notes, and tickets sold out in just 20 minutes for this year’s event. The theme in 2018 is restoration — a nod to restaurants themselves. “The root of the word restaurant is restore,” Rudolf states. “Restaurants were and are a place to be restored.”
If you missed out on scoring tickets, you can be a part of what is certain to be a moving, inspiring — and restorative — day. Join in The Welcome Conference 2018 ‘Restoration’ livestream at 10AM ET on June 4th.
