January 27, 2020 | HOST Summit + Social presented by All In The Industry

Shari Bayer, along with industry leaders featured on her popular Heritage Radio Network podcast, All in the Industry, hosted this all-day, interactive and educational conference for, and about, the dynamic hospitality industry.

We started the day buzzing from coffee provided by Aficionado Coffee and bites from Breads Bakery, Du’s Donuts, and Ora King Salmon.

Wishing all bread could look this good.

When you don’t want to be “that person” at the cocktail hour, grab a non-alcoholic tonic from Curious Elixirs. Gives you a slight buzz, but no hangover at work tomorrow.
