The 89th Annual Hotel Ezra Cornell

Register now to attend HEC 89 and join the conversation around this year’s theme, Food for Thought. The Board of Directors is working tirelessly to couple their affinity for excellent service with the new movement towards a healthier America.

Did you know that 36% of American adults are obese and that experts project that this number will rise to 42% by 2030? Or that nearly 70% of calories consumed come from processed foods? Combine this with the fact that one out of every five meals is eaten in a restaurant, and we’ve got a serious problem that our industry needs to help solve.

What are you doing? Join the conversation March 20-23 at the 89th Annual Hotel Ezra Cornell. To register for the conference, please visit the registration site. For more information, please visit
