There are hundreds of events that are hosted each year and they take place all over the world. While places like the US, Canada and as far out as Australia have their own impressive events, they're probably a little too far to book a quick weekend to visit. Instead, here are the most popular events that are taking place a little closer to home in 2018.

Don't Forget To Keep Your Team Safe


While you can't be blamed for planning multiple visits to some of these upcoming events which can hugely benefit your restaurant, don't forget to make sure you and your team are always safe. Encourage them to wear appropriate footwear which will make sure they are comfortable and reduce the risk of slips, trips and falls - the most common workplace accidents. To help them wear shoes that will get them home safely, purchase footwear that surpasses minimum ISO standards.
