The Chain Operators Exchange (COEX) enables chain operators to take advantage of business building insights and create personal connections with leading manufacturers. With dozens of high-profile operators on the planning committee, the program truly is created "by operators, for operators."
No other industry event provides as many opportunities to connect. At COEX, IFMA members and operators have numerous ways to engage, whether during organized one-on-one meetings, entertaining events or roundtable discussions. COEX is a one-of-a-kind networking opportunity for foodservice leaders.
COEX 2016 will be taking place March 6-9, 2016 in Las Vegas.
