2021 Marketing Executives Group (MEG) Event Notice

The Illinois Department of Public Health has prohibited gatherings of 50 or more through June 2021, and the City of Chicago’s Phase IV Guidelines limit hotel gatherings to 50. This comes with the regrettable news that we will not be holding the 2021 Marketing Executives Group (MEG) in-person event. In the meantime, we want to stay connected through a series of online gatherings covering various topics of interest for the restaurant marketing community. We look forward to seeing everyone in Chicago in 2022.

About the Marketing Executives Group (MEG)

The Marketing Executives Group (MEG) is a community of restaurant marketing professionals who are connected 365 days a year and come together every May in Chicago preceding the National Restaurant Association Show. MEG raises the level of industry excellence by connecting, inspiring, teaching and challenging each other through the exchange of ideas, thought leadership and best practices.

The National Restaurant Association Community Platform

We are excited to announce we’ve upgraded our Listserv and have officially launched a new community platform, Restaurant Community. This platform will provide our members with an exclusive opportunity to engage, network, and connect with other restaurant operators – all through a seamless and intuitive interface. 

The platform gives you the opportunity to:

  • Tailor your experience and join multiple discipline groups to receive critical resources and knowledge that will help solve your most pressing challenges.
  • Share your expertise, learn from your peers, expand on best practices, and improve your personal knowledge and business operations.
  • Continue important conversations before, during and after events.
  • Stay up to date on the latest Association news, events, discounts, and products that impact your bottom line.

To access the platform, email community@restaurant.org.
